    Stupid question: How many handbooks are we supposed to get? I thought we get 1 handbook for each module but I only got 4 (I didn't ask any questions when I got them because I was quite in a hurry!)

    You're only doing 4 modules this semester. After Christmas you'll get the other 3.
    Its silly to give you them all now as a lot of people will lose them
    Have you bought your books yet? Mine cost £150 :'(
    And I got a lovely lab coat

    1 hand book per module... 4 modules per semester, which is why you only got 4 :P

    You'll get the other 4 at the start of next semester

    yea I'm also not sure which books I'm going to buy. Maybe I will have a look at them in the library and then decide.

    I got Genetics, Biomolecular Chemistry: Shape & Function, Comparative Physiology and SPELS2 !

    In my handbooks it says "Core texts" and my tutor said really you should buy them, they're the main ones.
    And if it has an either/or bit in the same section, just choose one.
    I chose Practical Skills in Bimolecular Sciences as 2 of my modules wanted it, this saved me buying two books.
    I bought 3 books in all, costing nearly £150

    it's a room. that's where the Biomolecular Chemistry: Shape & Function lectures are taking place. I don't know where I can find this room and the first lecture is tomorrow at 9 I guess I will have to go to campus early to see if I can find someone who can tell me where to go.

    EDIT: Ok I'm stupid - I checked the module page but I must have missed the information It's on the first floor of the Tower Building...

    Baxter Suite. It's on the first floor of the tower building. Turn left onto the stairs as you go into the tower (from campus not perth rd side), up the stairs and the baxter suite is just on the left through the double doors. It's signposted once you get onto the stairs though. The rooms are written on the doors but I think 1.36 is the lecture theatre at the end.
