Books and reading lists

Check your booklists

A list of required and recommended materials, based on your unit enrolment, is available in my.monash. It's in the My course tile.

Login to my.monash to view your booklist.

If your booklist isn't there, it's because either:

  • you haven't enrolled in units or your enrolment hasn't been processed yet. Wait a few hours and try again
  • your teacher hasn't made the booklist available. Check with your faculty or teacher.

Using older editions

Be careful buying older editions of textbooks. Sometimes they'll be fine, but you should check with your lecturer first.

Check your reading lists

Most units will require you to read more widely than just the prescribed textbooks.

Check your reading lists by unit code or name, on the library website. Login to access articles online and to add personal study notes to items in your reading lists.
