    I'm taking an English module this with my first seminar on Friday. There's obviously the primary reading (Beowulf), which I've read but there's also 'recommended reading' which is basically a collection of about 15 articles and essays. Should I read all of this too before the seminar or should I come back to it when I write my essay? I want to be adequately prepared but nor do I want to spend hours on something that isn't going to be discussed in the seminar.

    Hm - I would read at least some of the recommended reading. Did your lecture give you any indication about how much of it you're expected to get through?

    Reading in advance will help prepare you for your seminar and give you ideas for your essays in the future. Make sure you take good notes I'd start reading for your essays as early as possible really, and the recommended reading is generally a good place to start getting ideas/putting feelers out.
