Twice after going through and toting up the prices of the available introductory books, for a university course I simply assigned Doug Smith
's site, and told them then to buy whatever they liked. Even at the end of the semester, they had
not quite mastered all his
pages! Yes, they bought a lot of books, too, Sayles, Harl, vanMeter, et al.
, but also adored CoinArchives
. I made them use Historia Numorum
on line, for which I am most grateful. But they still had
to go back to Doug, over and over.Patricia Lawrence
