Below you will find links to my old handouts, from universitites other than City (for handouts from City, click here). If the handout you require is not referenced it may mean I no longer have a soft copy. However, I may be able to send you a hard copy so please contact me . Some handouts require phonetic fonts to be installed on your computer. See this site for free download.
