My Homework Assignment Is...

Yesterday I started a new gig with the client (as usual, client names will be kept private). This one is starting off on an...odd note, because they're requiring me to read two books ("Refactoring" (which I read years ago) and "Refactoring to Patterns" (which I haven't read yet)). In all my years as a consultant I've never had a client require me to read a technical book before I start the gig (I actually go on-site when I get back from vacation next week - I'm billing in the office until then). It's not that I think it's "wrong" to make this request - it's just...odd. Sometimes I'll get documents on what the work involves, but never a homework assignment ;).
