From the Back Cover:

 Laboratory studies and data analysis form the cornerstone of chemistry, yet the diversity of skills required in the laboratory and restricted time for laboratory work mean that students’ experience is often limited. Practical work must be fully understood and effectively presented, but students may underperform if they lack basic laboratory skills. Practical Skills in Chemistry provides easy-to-read guidance for those who wish to succeed. Transferable skills such as using information technology and communicating information are also essential for all students. This book gives invaluable help with these areas, from reporting practical and project work, to using spreadsheets and organising poster displays. This text’s unique and comprehensive coverage includes: general advice on practical work; basic laboratory skills, classical and instrumental techniques; analysis and presentation of data; information technology; library resources; and communicating information.    Features include:

  • 'One-stop' guide to the key practical skills needed in chemistry.
  • Information presented in a clear and user-friendly manner, tailored directly for the mastery of basic laboratory skills.
  • Numerous margin tips and hints, 'how to' boxes, checklists and worked examples.
  • Guidance on numerical aspects, including logarithms and statistics.
  • Chapters grouped into key topics.
  • Relevant Internet resources for chemistry highlighted.
 Practical Skills in Chemistryis an indispensable book for undergraduate students in chemical sciences. It is also a valuable resource for teachers in secondary schools. John R Dean is Principal Lecturer in Analytical and Environmental Sciences, Alan M Jones is Head of Chemical Sciences, David Holmes and Rob Reed are Principal Lecturers in the School of Applied and Molecular Sciences, all at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. Allan Jones and Jonathan Weyers are Senior Lecturers at the University of Dundee.
