So I would like to know which parts should be read each week? I learn a lot from self study of the slides + book.
The book uses the same terminology of the lectures, although the order of topics may be not be exactly the same (Lecture 3 belongs to Chapter 3, out of sequence). The easiest way is to lookup the technical terms of each lecture in the book index and also in the (short) table of contents.

The topics that are not covered by the book have complementary material posted here on the forum.
