Congratulations on securing your place I would recommend a USB device. Make it at least 4gb (£5.00 on play.com) so you can store videos. (youtube is banned at school, so you'll need to download and save them). I bought loads of recommended books and haven't used any of them. When writing assignments or on school placement, my uni's library had everything I needed. I know you're probably itching to buy books, but wait til you've seen what the library has. You'll save so much money! Lastly, folders. Lots of folders for all the paperwork you're going to have. I have 16 lever arch folders and am just finishing my PGCE.
