The Science Questions and Answers. (Elementary and Advanced,

separate, 6d. each subject) or Questions and Answers. Each Question answered as fully as requisite in the May Examinations,

by H. Major, B.A., B.Sc. (Honours, London, F.R.G.S.) “A very useful book, teachers will find it a great aid."—(Physical Geography.F. C. Richardson, Science Teacher, Islington.

“I am well pleased with your Physical Geography and Animal Physiology, they are the best books that have yet appeared, and I would advise all who go in for examinations to procure copies, and success will be certain." --James Gray, Rathbone, Ireland.

“I have examined your Examination Series (Inorganic Chemistry) and am highly pleased with it, no student who studies it can fail to gain a First Class. I would recommend every teacher to procure them."—W. Bettel, Laboratory, Middlesborough.

“I am very pleased with the Science Examination Series. I consider them useful to all students."—W. J. Lancaster, F.M.S. (Author of Physics.)

“ The Physical Geography is a model of what such a publication should be; the answers are well grouped, clear, concise, and correct."-T. B. Smith, People's College, Nottingham.

“ Physical Geography contains a large amount of information compressed into a small compass. These books contain the essentials of the subjects of which they treat, and are models of answering to students."-J. Stevenson, Carrickfergus.

"I strongly recommend all Science Lecturers to procure copies for their classes, they will materially assist in framing their answers at the May Examinations, and thus reduce tho labour of teachers to a minimum."—W. T. Clements, Science Teacher, Maghera.

"I am much pleased with the plan of Questions and Answers in Animal Physiology. The hints given about the method of answering will prove of great service to many students." Rev. R. H. Morris, Principal, Training College, Carmarthen.

“Your idea is a very excellent one, and is well carried out."-T. Viccars, Torquay. "The answers will be found very valuable to students, and ought to take well.”—P. Magennis.

" I like your Series very much, and think them well calculated to raise the per-centage of passes; they contain much information in a brief space, the answers are given in a good systematic form, greatly assisting the student in applying his knowledge at the Science Ex. amination."-J. Fox, Orphan Working School.

“I heartily recommend all teachers at once to gapply their papils with this excellent little work (Physical Geography). I heartily wish you success." --J. S. Card, Bristol.

"Your Science Questions and Answers are exceedingly useful, the answers are full, comprehensive, and determine the proper scope of the questions."-J. McGinley, Dunkenelly. "A truly inestimable boon to teachers (Physical Geography); the whole series is a happy

Your answers to Magnetism, &c., are all that could be desired: students intending to sit should give them their best attention."-F. Spencer, Nottingham.

· The Mathematics and Mechanics are neatly worked out, and will be of great service to students unaccustomed to examinations."-J. Hayes, Liverpool.

“The Science Examination Series must be of great value to Science Students, by affording them excellent models of appropriate answers to Science and Art Questions. We heartily commend it to teachers as a valuable adjunct to their class examinations."-"Schoolmaster.”

" There is a great deal of art in knowing how to properly answer a question, even if the mind be stored with an amount of knowledge amply sufficient for the purpose. Consequently Mr. Major deserves the thanks of Science Teachers for issuing these little works, that will show scholars how to answer their questions. These books are a vast improvement on the old catechism, inasmuch as each question is here answered at considerable length, and as fully as would be necessary in a Government Examination. Scholars accustomed to them will not waste their time, but remembering the model answers they have here studied, will at once state what they know clearly, accurately, and intelligibly."_"National Schoolmaster."

“ They supply a want that has long been felt by all who have to prepare for the May Ex. aminations, and will, I am confident, be favourably received by Science Teachers."-5. House, Sulham Training College.

" I like your Inorganic Chemistry much.”—M. Knowles, Science Teacher, Bradford. " I like the Science Questions and Answers much."-J. Kinton Bond, Plymouth.

"A student cannot fail to get a First-Class if he studies how the answers in the Science Questions and Answers are put together.”—F. S. Lewis, Science Teacher, Bristol. Science Questions, only, given by the Science Department, for the

last ten years. 2d. each subject, 28. per doz., post free.
