This guide is to provide you with access to the readings for your course.  Many are available online, or at your local TAFE library.  If the library closest to your home location doesn't have a book that you're looking for, then you can ask for an inter-library loan.

The guide is divided into different sections by the tabs above.  To find your reading resources choose the appropriate course under either Stage 1,2, or 3 Subject tabs.
