Non-examinable material

I received the following message:

Dear Professor,

In the list of non-examinable material in the book you put sections 1.1.3- 1.1.5. However section 1.1.6. seems to rely on those sections ruled out. I wasn’t sure if it was the case that you forgot to list it, or that this section is indeed examinable?

I’m at home right now without the textbook, but since the examination is near, I thought I’d send a quick generic clarification. If material in section B depends on section A and the latter is listed as ‘non-examinable,’ this means that the results needed from section A should simply be assumed when reading section B. I’m sorry if that wasn’t clear.

I also apologize that I didn’t manage to schedule another revision session.
