You will remember something better if you understand it. We therefore suggest that you always follow the study guide when working through the prescribed book. One of the best ways to ensure that you understand the material is to summarise the theory in your own words. Work through one study unit at a time. The first tutorial letter, which accompanies this study guide, contains a proposed study programme that you can follow to ensure that you finish working through all the prescribed sections before the examination. The study programme also makes provision for adequate revision before the examination.
