Do I Bring Textbooks To Class?
So I'm not exactly sure about textbooks. Once I buy them, do I bring them to each lecture and tutorial? Or do I keep them at home to do the readings? My professors haven't mentioned anything about this...

Also, do I do the readings specifically for tutorials or for the lectures?

Not sure about other programs, but for Life Science, I only brought textbooks along if I had long breaks and wanted to read in the library.

Other than that, no need to bring textbooks to lecture since the prof will be lecturing for the entire 50mins.

EDIT: Doing your reading before both lecture & tutorial is best so you know what's going on when the material is being taught.
