Wait to lectures start and then they'll tell you the exact ones you need for the course.
Little point getting ones now if you don't know what the syllabus covers.

In my experience, text books also get differing amounts of use.
For example, your stats text book is going to be used a lot, whereas that massive £45 tome on child development might only ever get referenced to as 'additional reading'.
My point being, don't necessarily rush out and buy the reading list, some of it might be better lent from the library and read at your own leisure for pleasure!

Very good advice above. Also, for most common textbooks try google searching "TEXTBOOK TITLE + PDF" and i just saved you £100s there. For uni work, its worth mentioning that most reading will be done viajournal articles (download as pdfs) rather than bought books.
Inevitably though if you want to get a start on reading now read through discovering statistics by Andy Field (PDF Versiions will be online) is a good place to start.Last edited by iammichealjackson; 19-09-2015 at 15:26.
