Hi, I guess this is a question that is directed more towards any of the Professors here at the forums, although anyone with advice is more than welcome to. I always wondered why Professors would only cover certain chapters from the textbook. Although I know that time is one of the limiting factors in teaching the whole book, my question specifically relates to the courses in which the Professors begin teaching from some chapters in the middle or later chapters. Such as Chapter 6+ and skip the introductory parts or the final advanced parts. Do Professors expect that students already know the information and so they skip through, and for more advanced topics, are these same topics covered in other courses or is it another reason? Also, would any Professors recommend that a student who might have the time, actually go through the whole book if they enjoy the course?
