This volume is intended to aid the scientist, engineer, or student preparing for these professions, who is faced with acquiring rapidly and directly a reading knowledge of a new language in order to
keep up with technical articles and books in the field. They are to be used almost from the beginning, along with a dictionary, in reading unsimplified scientific and technical material. Beginners with no previous
knowledge of the language will probably benefit most, but the books can also be used by those who wish to refresh their knowledge. They can be used either in classes or for individual study.
