About this book

*A lab manual appropriate for general, organic and biological chemistry course. *This lab manual is student friendly. It is organized and written to ensure that non-science majors are comfortable with chemistry labs by making the experiments more applicable to students' daily lives. This approach also serves to make the experiments more understandable.
