This manual provides simple experiments to correlate and illustrate the subject matter in the author's textbook of general chemistry. There are questions for each experiment which attempt to bring out the underlying principles. A general plan of study with parallel textbook and laboratory assignments is presented in tabular form. Experiments in inorganic and organic chemistry are included. The latter include the carbohydrates, fats, proteins, digestion, and a few experiments on blood and urine. The book is too brief for the medical student who devotes considerable time to the important subject of chemistry. For general courses given to nonmedical students, for domestic science students and for nurses, the manual will be useful. Teachers of such courses will find in this book valuable suggestions for the outlining of a general course in chemistry.
