Textbook and Laboratory Reference
This excellent lab book emphasizes calculations that students can practice and covers all elements of the laboratory experience like safety, making solutions, volume, mass, pH, and temperature measurement, and the operation of many common laboratory instruments. It also instructs students on how to keep a notebook, and how to collect and analyze data. There are sections that are appropriate for a manufacturing curriculum that discuss GMP and ISO 9000. If a student could master this book, they should be hired immediately.
