QUESTION: People who have taken BOIL 359 with Witt, is the textbook necessary?


  1. He usually puts a couple of them on reserve at the library.

  2. Not really. All the stuff in the textbook that will be tested is already explained really well in the lectures. (You might like to refer to the textbook sometimes just to clarify on things that he talked about. But you could just use the course reserves for that.) You do need to read some of the boxes in the textbook though. (He mentions which ones are important in class. Again, you can use the course reserves.)

  3. I never used it and I got an 86 in the course.
    The lectures are all you need to know
