To buy or not to buy? 3 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 1
I’ve finally received all my study material.
I’m registered for the following modules for which I have to buy textbooks.

MRL2601
(1) Davis D, Cassim F, Geach W, Mongalo T, Butler D, Loubser A, Coetzee L & Burdette
Maatskappye en ander besigheidstrukture in Suid-Afrika (2009) Oxford

(2) Pretorius JT, Delport PA, Havenga MK & Vermaas M Student case book on business entities (2004) 3rde uitg Juta

PVL2601
Heaton J South African Family Law 3 ed (2010) LexisNexis Durban

FUR2601
Currie I en de Waal J The Bill of Rights handbook 5de uitgawe (2005) Juta.

IOS2601
Christo Botha Wetsuitleg: ’n Inleiding vir studente (2005) 4de uitg Juta Kaapstad.

From what I’ve heard it is not really necessary to buy a textbook for FUR2601. I’ve bought textbooks in the past and some I’ve hardly touched, I don’t want to make the same mistake again.
If anyone who has done any of these modules could please advise me which are necessary and which they didn’t use.

Thank you,
Gary

- You definitely need to buy this book, the Study Guide is also useful as some cases are summarised in it.


MRL2601
I never had the case book as most of the prescribed cases are summarised in the prescribed text book & the Study Guide. Passed the module last semester

PVL2601
Most MCQs are based on the text book, always advisable to have a copy, even if it's a previous edition

FUR2601
I used an old edition for this module, the Study Guide was useful enough and I hardly used the textbook

Good luck with your studies!

Hi Gary

I have done both PVL2601 and FUR2601...

I would really reccommend your buying the textbook for PVL2601, but wrt to FUR2601, Adv. Shaik mentioned to us in the discussion class that the Study Guide was all that necessary for us to pass this module. I did buy the BOR Handbook and used it for my second assignment, for which I received a very good mark. However, I used the Study Guide only when preparing for the exam and still got a distinction.

Hope this helps
