iSpy

I don't know from where, I am so obsessed with looking up course descriptions of subjects in other universities. From my university handbook, I know the subject names by heart. The fact is that, the handbooks are public to allow for easy access, who knows some busybody might pop around.

You expect topics to be covered by reading a subject description. Coupled with information on level of the course (as per the university) you can tell the standard of the university, as well as the academic demands placed on students. Prescribed textbooks can give clues too.

Obviously you must learn from the best right? Some math papers from Cambridge for you to try! Here and here. You need Adobe Reader to open them.
