Lab Skills; Multiple Choice Quizzes

This is the landing page for a series of multiple choice quizzes for some core lab skills / techniques. For each question, click the answer you think and it will turn green if it is correct and red if it is wrong. They do not keep score; these quizzes exist to help you learn. As such, in each MCQ there are explanations to reinforce the teaching points.

They start of easy but I’ve deliberately tried to include some more difficult questions as you progress through. Some of the points raised will not have been covered in your lecture material but rather involve you thinking about the solution from what you have learned.

For some questions there are multiple potential correct answers, I recommend clicking answers until you think you have them all, but then click the rest to check you haven’t missed any.
