4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive P-Chem Lab Text September 4, 2000
One of the most comprehensive physical chemistry lab text, SGN discusses about calculations and presentation of data, uncertainties in data and results, background and theory for each experiment. Experimentals are extremely clear and detailed, though individual instructors might develop modifications. The uncertainties section might be supplemented by John Taylor's "Introduction to Error Analysis" for more in-depth reference.
Experiments are groups into topics like Gases, Transport Properties of Gases, Solutions, Electrochemistry, Kinetics, and Spectroscopy, etc. The text also devotes incredible amount of pages on electronic devices, vacuum techniques, instruments and lab procedures for reference. Many lab texts are published, yet SGN might be the best for students.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best p-chem lab text that I've run across April 14, 2000
By A Customer
As a student taking p-chem lab and now as a teaching assistant on the other side of the desk, I've come to greatly appreciate this text. It is well written and easy for students to grasp. The instructions are complete and sufficient background is provided for the students to understand not only what they are to do but also why they are to do it. Granted, not all students will find it sufficient, but there are generous references within the text to point these students in the direction of more complete treatments of the specific point in question. Overall, it is a very highly recommended text.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good PChem Lab Text May 18, 2005
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I felt the book did a great job explaining the labs from the perspective of the applications to the PChem theory learned in other classes.

This book lacks good explanations of theory, so hold onto your pchem text if you need this book for a class!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good PChem lab manual April 20, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is designed as a series of experiments for the physical chemistry lab, with a little bit of exposition to describe the principles explored in each lab exercise. Paired with a good pchem textbook, this thing can be really useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars labeling September 23, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Look people, if you are selling a book that is customized for a specific institution, then you should label it on AMAZON for that specific institution. I ordered Experiments in Physical Chemistry thinking i was getting the newest edition (8th). In stead I received the 6th edition customized for Rutgers University. This has happened to me twice after I returned the first book and ordered a replacement because of your poor ability to properly label what you are selling on Amazon. Thank you for making my first month of school painful. I really do appreciate it!!!
