Bibliography
Note: Clicking on the link for a book will take you to the relevant Google Book Search page. You may be able to preview the book there. On the right hand side you will see links to places where you can buy the book. There is also link marked 'Find this book in a library'. This sometimes works well, but not always. (You will need to enter your location, but it will be saved after you do that for the first time.) AssessmentThe course will be assessed via a final exam consisting of seven questions. Answering at least four correctly will constitute a pass. The exam will be made available in April. Students will be given two weeks to complete this and submit it on-line.
