VULMS Handouts | Guide to Download in PDF

VULMS handouts are available 24/7 on the portal, and you can download them as many times on any device. In addition, you can also buy the handouts from the Virtual University Official Bookshop. But to get the most relevant handout, it’s better to download it in soft copy and get it printed.
