Laboratory Handbook for General Chemistry (with Printed Access Card Student Resource Center)by Conrad L. (edt) Stanitski
Synopses & Reviews
To do a chemistry lab experiment students need to know how to use the equipment and to perform basic laboratory procedures, such as weighing and making volume measurements. This Handbook is designed to be an affordable, "how to" guide to basic techniques, operations, and equipment used in general chemistry laboratory courses. The Handbook can be used in conjunction with CER modular experiments, to support locally-written experiments, or to complement the techniques sections of commercial lab manuals.
LABORATORY HANDBOOK FOR GENERAL CHEMISTRY (accompanied by free access to an online resource center) is the perfect guide to lead you down the path of success. This how-to tool is supplemented by an instructional video and will provide you with information on everything from basic equipment to operations that are necessary for successful laboratory experiments.
