This guide has been developed for Open Universities Australia students studying at Curtin University.

Reading lists

Reading Lists are lists of essential and recommended resources selected by your lecturer for each unit. These may include: book chapters, journal articles, videos and web content.

Reading Lists are available through your Blackboard unit. Look for the link in the Blackboard navigation pane to find your Reading List.

Past exam papers

A selection of past exam papers can be accessed from the Library catalogue.

If you can't find an exam for your unit, please consult with your lecturer or tutor for access options.
