Talk to your lecturer or the department to see which books you will definitely need for each of your papers before purchasing any textbooks. Textbook information is also available on the website in the course outlines for individual papers.
Each textbook is rated as to how important it is for the course, so definitely get Essential ones, however you may not need to purchase the Supplementary or Highly Recommended books. Textbooks are available from the Library for borrowing but often only for a limited time because of demand.
You can purchase second-hand and new textbooks from the University Book Shop (UBS). Search the list of books on the UBS website:
- Use the drop-down to select your Department.
- Enter your Paper Number (e.g. ENGL121).
- Click Find Lists.
