That finishes up the formal reading assignments. We recommend that you read (or re-read) sections of the book that you may have missed (such as appendices A and B), or sections that still confuse you. We also recommend that you re-read the documentation for CVX*, CVX Users’ Guide, skipping only the very driest sections. In particular, we expect you to know the DCP rules.
