Welcome back!  For the first class, please read pages 1-20 of the casebook and prepare the problems (except for 1.2.3(b)).  For the second class, please read pages 20-24 of the casebook and prepare the problems (except for 1.2.4).  You will find a syllabus and supplemental readings in the boxes outside the copy center.

To answer a question about the statutory supplement: If you are taking another UCC class, you need not purchase another supplement.  I prefer the one I chose because it is more readable than the others, but all of them have the same basic content.  I may refer to statutory language by its location on the page, though, which would make use of our statutory collection preferable.
