Onwards and Upwards

// February 24th, 2006 // Geekery

Our four days in the lab have come to an end. It was a bit of an eye-opener. I can see I will have to get a lot more careful and coordinated if I am to become a successful chemist.

Things I learned:

  • It’s good to know the substance you are dealing with
  • Better to take things slowly and careful, than rush it and have to redo it
  • Bunsen burners are very hot.
  • PhD students can be a little patronising when explaining things to you.
  • The good news was that I got my total mark back for my assignments and I got 33.9 / 35 – the second highest in the class! It’s clear that the lab will be my area of challenge.

    I’ve got my final test today, and then it’s all over for CHEM 191 – but not to fear, CHEM 103 starts on Monday closely followed by BIOL 111 on Wednesday. It’s going to be a busy semester – I have stuff on all day Thursday and only one full day off (Tuesday). I’m looking forward to it though.

    And now off to do some revision! I haven’t done a test for a long time…
