Do i need to read books for classical studies A level?

Hello, I was going through the syllabus and past papers for classical studies A level and I was wondering if I have to read some books.
Because on paper 4 there are 2 options Greek Tragedy or Homeric Epic and in the past papers they ask questions about books for example

Characters in tragedy seek revenge rather than justice.
To what extent do you agree with this description of the tragedies that you have read? In your answer, you should refer to at least two plays.

If I have to read some books, what books should I read for the Greek tragedy?
I know that for Homeric Epic, I just need to read Homer's books - Illiad and Oddysey and do some research about him
