Does anyone have the preliminary reading list for the management course?

I would really appreciate it if someone could post it

I have, but it's quite long...

I was thinking of buying the following ones myself, but do people reckon it's necessary/worthwhile/useful/pointless/etc?

- Glautier and Underdown (2001) - Accounting theory and practice. FT Prentice Hall.

- Watson, T. (2003) Sociology, Work and Industry, 4th Edition. Routledge.

- Valdez S (2007) 'An Introduction to Global Financial Markets' (5th Edition) Palgrave Macmillan ISBN 1-230-00635-3

- The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement, Goldratt, E. Gower Publishing Limited (2004) ISBN: 0566086654

Anyone? I really want to know if getting a couple of these is worthwhile, because I'm planning on ordering them this week...

Don't bother with them. No one expects you to have read theam, and the module texts are different.

Fantastic. (Thanks for the response though)

After getting no responses, and going on holiday very soon, I went ahead and ordered 4 or 5 of the books yesterday!

Great.

I can't think of anything more offputting or inappropriate than a heavy textbook over the summer. Might something lighter eg on the Enron scandal, not be more suitable and motivating over the summer?! You also need some background culture, and not just know those rules !
