It is not intended that students purchase all of these texts, as they are available in the University Libraries. Also, several cover similar topics. It is also not intended to give the impression that these are the only books to which students will need to refer. Students will be expected to make full use of the Edward Boyle, Health Sciences and University Libraries. Help in using the facilities of all the University libraries can be found on http://www.leeds.ac.uk/libraries . The Union Bookshop and Blackwells usually stock recommended textbooks and you are advised to purchase them early.
