    It helps if you know what you are suppose to do when you do the pracs. Therefore read through the experimental notes at least twice before the pracs. Browse through the theory concerned in your physics handbook. If any questions arise try and get answers beforehand. The time in pracs are limited therefore you need to be prepared as well as you can. Ask students who already did the experiment - this will greatly increase your chances of success.
