I recognize that the textbook is long, but many of the pages are “Comments” at the end of the primary cases. Concentrate your preparation time on the primary cases and the expository matter that precedes the primary cases. Also, you may skip over any of the different “Perspectives” that appear in gray background in the text. I will address any questions you have on these, but they are not required reading. Supplementary materials are available from the publishers at www.ipcasebook.com, and there are also updates at that site which we will use during the course.
