As the dust settles after exams, your minds may be turning to the RPE modules of Semester Two.
For those on the Buddhism module - you will shortly receive links to some introductory podcasts for this course. Till then - I would advise you to read the account of the Buddha's life as collected from the Pali texts - which is located at http://www.accesstoinsight.org/ptf/buddha.html
When studying the life of the Buddha, what we have to keep in mind is that this is not so much an historical record of the life of the Buddha, as an account of what early Buddhism believed about the life of the Buddha.
