Welcome! Prior to each lab, you will need to download and print the appropriate lab exercise. Failure to do so may result in the loss of lab points.
We strongly recommend organizing your lab exercises using a binder or similar so that you will have them to study for any open lab manual exams and the final exam. The front and rear covers contain useful information and should be included in your organized lab binder. The entire manual contains 192 pages (96 double sided pages). Some illustrations may have color but black & white prints are completely acceptable.
Only students registered in GLG104 will have access to lab manual exercises.. You will need your eGCC account information (login name and password) to download these files. Click here for information on how to use your eGCC account.
If you are off campus, your computer will need a recent version of the Adobe Reader to read or print these files.
