For attending students, the texts are intended as resources for not loosing track if absent; and for giving occasion to more theory-oriented and motivated students to deepen and broaden their preparation in conceptual terms. They are not objects to be memorized in details but understood in their fundamental concepts (the exam questions will conform to this approach)
