You don't have to buy or read course text books before you start your course and you may wish to sample textbooks from the library before deciding which textbooks are right for you. However, we do have a set of recommended textbooks for core modules in Chemistry that can be purchased as a textbook bundle through Blackwell's at the University of Nottingham. This textbook bundle may be pre-ordered before you arrive in Nottingham and be collected during First Week in the School of Chemistry. The bundle contains the recommended text books for core modules in Chemistry in all years of study. More details may be found here.
You may also wish to consider a molecular modelling kit. These kits are not compulsory but some students may find them useful in helping them to visualise molecules. More details may be found here.
You will be provided with a laboratory coat and safety glasses during your first weeks at the University of Nottingham. You should not bring your own.
