Still, I see that a bunch of people doing it, and I wanted to know if I will be completely screwed if I go into the fall blind. Current students- did any of you not touch any of this kind of reading before the semester started? Was it a disadvantage?
IT REALLY DOES NOT MATTER either way IMO. It's probably not worth the time, because (1) it's probably going to bore you to death. You won't last long trying to read a supplement. (2) The material is just not that complicated. There will be plenty of time for you to learn it through the semester.
I don't think you will be at any disadvantage. For the millionth time, people don't get good grades because they KNOW the material that much better than everyone else. People get good grades because they are good at test-taking, and that's it.
