Full text: Modern business geography

(Nn every good course in Business Geography some reference books are 
needed. The most important are a few standard books devoted largely to 
statistics. Nothing is more valuable to a student, or to a teacher, than to 
learn to make frequent and easy use of the books in Section A below. Each 
of the first four costs less than a dollar a year, and the current copies should 
be kept at hand in every school. The Statesman’s Year-Book is extremely 
valuable, but its cost is relatively high, and a new copy need be purchased 
not oftener than every four years or so. 
The remaining books comprise a very small selection of some of the best. 
Many other highly valuable volumes could be added, but it is believed that 
the teacher will be most helped by a short list of books, every one of which 
ought to be in every school.

'9) Any good encyclopedia. Some reference work of this sort is highly important, 
and the habit of using it is still more important. 
'10) It is always wise to have the class review the previous work. For this pur- 
pose copies of the textbook used in earlier years are needed, also copies of 
several other good elementary texts.
