Suggestions on
Preparation and
It is critical that students prepare for each experiment by reading the Lab Techniques Manual carefully before entering the laboratory. Not only will this ensure that you get the maximum benefit of the experience, but it also makes for a safer environment in the laboratory. This is important not only for your own safety but also for those around you. 
Requirements none 
Grading Method The course grade will be based on lab notebook, attendance and your performance in lab. 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Other The lectures "Organic Chemistry IA" to "Organic Chemistry IV" cover the knowledge required for the practical training, and the skills in the practical training cannot be obtained without the knowledge in the lectures. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
