Heads up, hero! You're gonna need three things for chem lab this semester: a LAB MANUAL, a LAB NOTEBOOK, a COMBINATION LOCK, and a CALCULATOR.
Lab Manuals are available for $14.65 at the Co-op along the back wall. You must have the Spring 2009 edition with the blue and white cover (see picture below). Buy yours early because the Co-op WILL run out!
Lab notebooks like the one pictured below are $14.50 from the Duplicating office in the main hallway of Welch (room 2.228) or $15 from the Co-op. You don't have to have that exact same kind, but the one you get must have DUPLICATE, NUMBERED pages. You will need one with 100 pages.
You can get a combination lock from the Co-op for $5 in aisle 7, or just buy one anywhere that fine personal security devices are sold.
Make sure your calculator does exponents and logs. Don't show up with a business calculator that will amortize your mortgage in two easy steps but won't allow you to calculate pH if your life depends on it. And don't show up with a little, pink Hello Kitty calculator that gives off a high-pitched beep every time you press a button. (I know I shouldn't have to say these things, but guess what happens when I don't...)
