Student Use of Thin Sections in Introductory Geology
O'Brien, Lawrence
Journal of Geological Education, 26, 2, 75-9, Mar 78

Evaluation by questionnaire suggests that the study of thin sections has a positive effect on the enjoyment and understanding of rock identification and classification by introductory students.
