I am currently taking an Analytical Chemistry class which has labs in it. I did my first one last week and it wasn't so bad - I still have one more week to finish up my lab write up. This week though we are doing another lab, and my hopes are that I can prepare myself better for this week. I was just wondering, what you all used to do (those of you who took the course) in order to prepare for the labs? What did you try to focus on during preparation and were there any textbooks that you found that helped with getting a very good grade in the course?
