Great manual for the laboratory... Lack of pictures is the main detraction from this product. Only a few pages of color photos.

I bought this book for around $12 and the textbook for about $10. I didn't want to pay $350 for the newest edition. I checked my classmates book and this book is pretty much exactly the same as the newer edition. It was risky buying the old edition but the payoff in saving all that money is worth the risk.

I rented a used lab manual and it was in terrible condition. The pages are falling out, there is writing all over it, and assignment pages are missing! It is going to be a little difficult to do my homework when it isn't even in the book! I can't believe they would even think about letting their customers rent a manual like this at all!

this is a rather extensive lab notebook. well written and contains a lot of extra information about the procedures that may not be found in a lab book itself. also contains appendices in the back on various equipment use like spectrophotometer and membrane filters.

This book arrived right on time, and was brand new as the website claimed it would be. Perfect condition. The book is full of interesting experiments in Microbiology with vibrant colors and detail.

First time to rent an electronic textbook. Really cool idea. Cost 1/3 what a textbook would cost. Easy to navigate with Kindle.
