Each track provides a list of required and optional reading. The intent is as follows.
As a prerequisite, students should become comfortable with the material presented in the required reading. The required reading list is intentionally kept as short as possible.
The optional reading list contains material that includea and goes beyond the scope of the refresher course. The refresher class is designed under the assumption that students are not familiar with the material in this list. The list is provided for future reference and for those who would like to spend additional time.
