Familiarity with complex analysis should be sufficient. Knowledge of differentiable manifold will be a plus. But most of what we are dealing with are 2-dimensional orientable manifolds. Comparing to the whole manifold theory, they are not as abstract since they can be visualized most of the time.

Basically, all exercises from the textbook is recommended. It's at the right level. However, I might pick some interesting exercises and update this part of the webpage later. Perhaps even give some hints or solutions.
