The questions are written using the official Dundee lectures, so you might find it useful to have them open in the background in case you get stuck.


I write the questions based on what I think the important facts are, but not everything is relevant. Don't waste your time learning tiny details.


On the other hand, this isn't everything you need to know - back it up with stuff from tutorials, other people's questions, Youtube videos, Oxford handbooks etc.



There's a good chance that older decks will be inaccurate (lectures and guidelines change year to year) so I'll try to update them in the future.
