RE: Making a student friendly lab manual
1. A lab manual should be written in a simple, clear and accurate way; however, the current chemistry lab manual does not satisfy these criteria nor does it convey experimental concepts clearly.
2. Revising the lab manual will allow students adequate preparation for each experiment and allowing efficient experiments and reduce accidents/injuries during the lab sessions.
3. In addition to simplifying and clarifying the chemistry lab manual, additional tables, charts and graphs would help students better understand the concepts.
