Editorial Reviews

Review

'Dr Squires has made a very worthwhile contribution to the surprisingly small number of modern textbooks available on this subject.' New Scientist

'I envy Squire's students! All other students should wish to own this book for the wealth of advice it gives them ...'. Contemporary Physics

'This is a quite invaluable book for those at, or nearing, undergraduate level.' The Times Educational Supplement

'... a distillation of the wisdom acquired through many years of undergraduate teaching and will surely establish itself as an integral feature of physics courses and associated teaching laboratories all over the world.' British Book News

Book Description

This classic companion to undergraduate practical work in physics describes the purposeful, critical approach that should be made to all physics experiments. It covers the statistical treatment of data, experimental methods, and gives advice on keeping efficient records, calculatio ns, and scientific writing. The new up-to-date edition includes further statistics, new experimental material, and worked examples based on spreadsheets. Practical Physics is liberally illustrated with examples and exercises with solutions. It has proved of interest not only to undergraduates, but also to school students, teachers, and researchers in many disciplines.

I was really pleased when the book arrived. Very quickly, also. The book is in particularly great condition - and that was also a plus. I would buy again from this seller.
