CE213 Resources


The lecture notes cover all the material that you are expected to know in the examination, but you may wish to read more about the topics covered. There are several very good introductory AI textbooks. Unfortunately they all cover much more material than CE213. Consequently they are large and correspondingly expensive. You should only consider buying them if you plan to take your AI studies further. Earlier editions are fine and are likely to be considerably cheaper on the secondhand market.
