ABSTRACT

This outline of histology is apparently meant as a student aid. Such student aids have, in our opinion, no pedagogical value unless made by the students themselves. A prepared outline does not offer the student an opportunity to train himself in scientific thinking and cannot replace a textbook. But some teachers do not agree with this idea and approve of readymade outlines. They demand, however, that they be short and clear. Both of these qualities are lacking in this book. The text is often inaccurate, and the efforts to explain too much in too brief a span are confusing. The diagrammatic illustrations will not help to give the student much histologic insight. The extensive section on dental histology is somewhat better than the rest of the book. This, however, does not justify the superficial treatment of the outline. It is inferior to other textbooks of dental histology which are available.
