a friendly tip, for the preliminary reading youll get/have gotten, its good to do it so make sure you do, as for buying the books they recommend however, i wouldnt.
a couple books i needed in september changed from the ones i was told to buy and yet all i got for that rather expensive mistake on UCL's part was a sorry in the first lecture,
even for the books rerecommended in september, think twice about buying them, most of your tutorial reading is outside them and theyre always available in the library, many of them btw and available on a week long loan.
if you buy all the ones they recommend, youll, like i did, spend about £300, use them a couple times during the year and now find yourself selling them to freshers for about a quarter of their worth.
if you wanna know about which ones id say to buy as theyre used more oftenl, feel free to write
