Make sure that you:

  1. Have downloaded the relevant lab sheet.
  2. Have read and understood what the experiment is about (such as what will be done, what results are expected).
  3. Have prepared with some theoretical background related to the experiment. Demonstrators will be asking some questions related to the experiment before performing the experiment.
  4. Have written something in the log book/paper related to the experiment.
  5. Have performed simulation exercise related to the experiment (where necessary). Demonstrators will be checking your simulation results before the lab session starts.
  6. Are available on the date and time of the lab session.
  7. Are able to access the lab sheet anytime (softcopy or hardcopy).

*** Students are advised to keep their lecture notes of previous semesters and bring the related lecture notes along during lab sessions for reference.


During the Lab Session

  1. Bring along your log book/papers for recording the results.
