I've just started Tafe externally and I had to attend an information session where we all formally applied for the course (both on campus and external students). At this session we were told all relevant information. Is there going to be such a session for your course? If not, I'd be phoning the Tafe and asking them about what you'll need.

We LOVE 'mature' nerdy teenagers.... they are just so damned hard working!

I hope you enjoy your course

(and I hope your lecturer is not being as distracted by EB that she isn't doing her lesson prep..... unlike some *whistles tunelessly*)

Aww I miss studying! I plan on doing a TAFE course soon.

To answer your question but its obviously already been answered - but yes, I used to pack a pencil case with some pens, highlighter, sticky notes (to scribble important stuff on or use for bookmarking text books) and a stapler for keeping notes and paper together. Along with a notepad and a bag to carry it all in. I also packed a waterbottle as well and a diary so I could keep track of what assessments/study I needed to do for the classes.

In one of my classes (Project Management), we were asked to bring a archive folder with plastic sleeve inserts in it for assessment to hand in. You may be asked to do this I don't know but I loved the idea so much I got another one for my own notes from each week and it came in handy for study time and assessments as I could tell which notes I needed from each week instead of making a mess!

Good luck and enjoy your study! How exciting! biggrin.gif

P.S I found TAFE teachers so much more hands on with their students more so than Uni.
