Sorry it does not. It does include the first required manual Practical Life for month 1 of the course. Manuals are required to participate in the course but the students needs to pay for them. The one time payment does get you 50% off all manuals regardless of if they are purchased all at once or month by month as they are assigned. The 50% off code has to be activated manually so wait for an email confirming it before adding the manuals to the cart. The discount will show on the checkout page before you pay.
