Personally, I hate laboratory practicals. They are by far the most troublesome and stressful types of classes that I have ever come across. However, for those of you who have these classes they are absolutely essential for your grades. This is apparent in the lab report you’ll have to submit on your activities within the class.
The main tip when participating in laboratory practicals is handling the equipment. As university labs are usually supplied with professional grade equipment, special attention must be taken when handling them for several reasons. First, you should make sure to be using them correctly. Knowing the right procedures in handling equipment will allow you to actually finish your lab report so your tutor will have something good to grade. Second, replacing them could decimate your wallet. As they are professional grade equipment, you would probably be unable to afford a replacement if you end up breaking one of them.
