    Thx for the reply.

    When you refer to the study guide for INF1520, where exactly do I get it from?

    And what study materials do I need then for COS1511 as you say there aren't prescribed books?

    Maximus, the study material is usually either a combination of a UNISA study guide and/or prescribed book/s and tutorial letters. If there are no prescribed books then you get a comprehensive study guide (and tutorial letters containing info about the course) from UNISA. Once you are registered you can download the study guides and/or tutorial letters from the myunisa website.
    All the info you need will be in the tutorial letters, what you need to study, the assignments, the exams, prescribed books etc, so don't panic. They will also send you hard copies of the study guides and tut letters either via courier or post.

    When I studies at Unisa I checked Exclusive books and Amazon as well, in conjunction with those already listed. With Exclusive one could collect the book(s) at one of their stores and sometimes Amazon was the cheapest, even with the shipping. I found second hand books on Amazon to often be the best value if one had a bit of extra time to wait for the book.
