This loose-leaf booklet is printed as a guide to a twenty hour course in parasitology for medical students. Numerous blank pages are interspersed for lecture and laboratory notes. Sixty-two illustrations accompany the directions for laboratory exercises. Morphologic details and parasites of little or no medical importance receive undue emphasis. Instead, greater stress could well have been given to the life cycles and methods of diagnosis of the important parasites. It is unlikely that this manual will be of much value to any students other than those taking the particular course for which the directions were written.
