Educational leaders are seeing with increasing clearness the necessity of teaching students not only the subject-matter of study but also methods of study. The recognition of this condition is taking the form of the movement toward ''supervised study,'' which attempts to acquaint the student with principles of economy and directness in using his mind. It is generally agreed that there are certain ''tricks'' which make for mental efficiency, consisting of methods of apperceiving facts, methods of review, devices for arranging work.

Although I can understand why this book could probably not be cited in a research paper or a scholarly journal, those who cannot accept the authority of this book, or think that this book is “outdated” and modern science is more advanced, are not appreciative to all ancient science and the uncountable contributions on which contemporary science rests.
