Text Book List 2006 - 2007


This list is intended to guide students to books which may help them in their reading around the subject material of each
course. It is unlikely that any one book will contain all the material covered in a course. Many other books are not
included in the list and may be helpful. Reference to the starred (*) book (or one of the alternatives) is regarded as the
minimum necessary for a proper study of a subject. The unstarred books are complementary to it and provide fuller
coverage of the subject or aspects of it. Students are advised that before buying books, they should look at them in the
library, and they should consult with their lecturers or tutors.

STUDENTS ARE ADVISED NOT TO BUY BOOKS PRECIPITATELY
