    Mathematics Textbook Recommendations

    So I've noticed looking around the forums there hasn't really been too much mention of good textbooks for university level mathematics and beyond. There's so many choices from all around the world on such a wide range of subjects, and deciding on books to buy have proved quite overwhelming for...

    I have an in class essay to do first day back on the Justice Game, and with the practice ones I am doing currently I’m having some issues with structure.

    Combinations With Bachelor Of Commerce (Liberal Studies)

    So, I am looking at doing Commerce or Commerce/Law, and I recently came across the Commerce (Liberal Studies) degree. I find it quite appealing, the only problem is it doesn't seem like you can combine it with anything, such as Law which I wanted to do eventually. Then I was reading the USYD...
