Laboratory Manual for Principles of General Chemistry by Jo Allan BeranThis new edition of the Beran lab manual emphasises chemical principles as well as techniques. The manual helps students understand the timing and situations for the various techniques. The Beran lab manual has long been a market leading lab manual for general chemistry. Each experiment is presented with concise objectives, a comprehensive list of techniques, and detailed lab intros and step-by-step procedures.

Fowler Ave. This qualitative study investigated the experience of a cohort of students exposed consecutively to two substantially different environments in their General Chemistry Laboratory programme. To this end, the first semester in a traditional expository programme was followed by a semester in a cooperative, problem-based, multi-week format. The focus on the experience of a change in the laboratory format is complementary understanding to that from participants exposed to a single format. This work used a phenomenological approach for the reduction, analysis, and interpretation of data gathered from semi-structured student interviews.
