I’ve always believed in the lab book

as a means to record practical information - The combination of precision detail and warts-and-all I’ve messed it up here and started again” recording really appeals.

It takes some training and practice and a good structure can really help - At the risk of sounding ancient, I just couldn’t find a structure I was happy with, so I rolled my own in LaTex

Here’s my generic printable guide: Lab book on Overleaf.

Having performed all those lovely practicals, it’s nice to know a little more about them - especially if you’re going to be examined on them. Again, time to make something bespoke: You’ll find my guide to practicals here
