    I am starting an undergraduate Law degree in Sep, and i would like to know if there are any books that perhaps current students would suggest reading in preparation? Thanks

    Your university will have a reading list, it will probably be on the department website, or you can just email them and ask for it.

    I thought so too, but i have asked them and they said just to prepare by reading articles.

    If you know what your first year modules are going to be then I suggest trying to find resources for it anywhere. Even a quick google search will bring up bits of information (it need not be said really but beware of wikipedia). Your university should eventually give out a reading list so I would be hesitant to buy any books in the meantime. It might be helpful to find a library and see what books they have, if not you could always spend time in waterstones reading parts of a book without having to buy it (i've never tried this myself, maybe I should have). If you do know your modules i'd suggest buying the 'law express' revision guides for each subject. That way you can use them when it comes to exams aswell. You can't go wrong with them revision guides! (They have enough information to get you started on the subject and you can suppliment it with your own research online if the revision guides don't provide enough detail)

    Thank you! I will have a look at the Law express books. I have no large library near me, just a very small one, and as for a Waterstones, the closest bookstore to me is an hour away! Thanks for the help, much appreciated
