It is to be regretted that the energies are often bent towards blindly following the words of the text without ever attempting to read between the lines- but it is hoped that those who use what is here given may be led so to think for themselves as to create a desire to know rather than an anxiety to pass. Equations should be written under all the paragraphs, and the references should be examined in a most thorough manner. It is the authors practice to hold a daily quiz-class upon points of difficulty connected with the laboratory work- and he finds the results most satisfactory when a student is placed in charge of such a class and is required to answer such questions as may be asked by his fellow students.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
