THE following questions make a complete set of the Examination Papers (except on the subject of Geometry) which have been used for admission to Harvard College since 1860. No papers on Geometry are given previous to 1866, as the requisites for admission to that department were changed in that year. The papers on Trigonometry previous to 1871 are for examination for advanced standing; since then, for admission to Course II.
These papers will furnish an excellent series of questions on Modern, Physical, and Ancient Geography; Grecian and Roman History; Arithmetic and Algebra; Plane and Solid Geometry; Logarithms and Trigonometry; Latin and Greek Grammar and Composition; Physics and Mechanics. They have been collected and published in this form for the convenience of teachers and classes in high schools, and especially for pupils preparing for college.
The papers for admission used hereafter, at the annual examinations in June and September, will be added every year to this volume.
