The course materials for the first chunk of LIT1 arrived today. This covers the first 8 units of what I believe is a 21-unit course. It’s presented as punched A4 sheets, printed both sides, on good paper and generally high production values, in a good binder. It confirms that the reading list is the same as last year, and contains some how-to-study material alongside the actual literature material. This is still of value to me, although I expect to be able to more-or-less skip it when I’m doing future introductory modules.
I haven’t really had a chance to look at it in much detail yet, but at a glance, it seems to be well-written – plain, to-the-point language, with clear meanings and references. I’m looking forward to getting dug into it – the term starts formally on the 26th of September, but I fully expect to have most of this material read through by then, at least once.
Materials for HIS1 and SOC1 should arrive soon too.
