Prescribed and Recommended Books

"Prescribed" textbooks are the books which the course co-ordinator (academic staff) list as essential reading and students are advised to purchase a copy of the  prescribed textbook.

"Recommended" textbooks are not compulsory but are extra reading materials should you wish to gain a more comprehensive background for your course.

Prescribed books are available in the library for a restricted borrowing period of one day or three days. The titles listed in this guide correspond to the official 2017 Wits book list. Use the course code for each school to locate the details and availability of prescribed/recommended books.

Open Access Textbooks

Open Access textbooks have been funded, published, and licensed to be freely used, adapted, and distributed. These books have been reviewed by academics from a variety of colleges and universities to assess their quality. Open textbooks can be downloaded at no cost, or printed at low cost. All textbooks are either used at multiple higher education institutions; or affiliated with an institution, scholarly society, or professional organization.

As part of the broader open educational resources movement, open textbooks increasingly are seen as a solution to challenges with traditionally published textbooks, such as access and affordability concerns
