Concise School Physics

    Article metrics


    THIS is the third and final part of “A Concise School Physics”, which is also available in a single volume. It carries the story well up to matriculation stage and contains 144 pages of copiously illustrated descriptive matter, about 34 pages of questions and answers, and four of mathematical tables. The general treatment follows good conventional practice and the writing is very condensed, so that the book reads like copious notes of excellent lectures supported by adequate laboratory work. The author, avoiding educational fads, has obviously striven to make his difficult story as straightforward as possible for beginners. The book is amazingly cheap at the price and it should prove very useful in class work which is being directed by a capable teacher.
