Editorial Reviews

"I'm very happy with the Northey and Jewinski text . . . A major benefit is that we can recommend one text to students at an early stage of their education and then refer to it throughout their training. And it provides an excellent basic schema for writing lab reports, with plenty of advancedconcepts in the later chapters too." --Thomas M. Quinn, McGill University
