When I first started work in a lab as an undergrad, I would often learn of crucial tricks after I had already messed up a procedure and lost an hour or more of work. It's ironic how dependent molecular biologists are on that most ancient means of communication: oral tradition.
When I took a biochem lab, I was introduced to the Seidman and Moore text, which is a fantastic teaching source. For the beginner, this book has chapters on basic units of measurement and mathematics, laboratory organization and regulation (including the government bodies which oversee lab safety), writing standards, and web etiquette. No stone is unturned! Even after one gets the basics mastered, this book has tables on plastics and buffers, showing how they react to heat, light, and other critical data--my biochemistry instructor was even suprised by some of the information on plasticware! This is a companion for one's career in the lab.

Good Biotech Lab Book but Outdated Jan. 25 2011
By rwcurry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This book does cover the basics. However, if you can afford it, get their second edition. It is more up to date and has the same and more information. I know this because I have both of them. But if you are tight on your funds and still need a biotech lab book. This is definately not a bad choice.

Informative Sept. 13 2009
By P. Slobodnik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
This book is a great resource. I plan on using it for a reference.

It is a little dry and unengaging.

It has many important facts and much useful information

This book is a necessity for biotech students and the one I purchased was in excellent condition - I won't ever part with it though!

Decent Product, Jan. 16 2014
By The Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is a great product when it comes to being resourceful for the biotechnology lab as per the contents themselves. My gripe is that they don't put a more than $80 book in a thing of shrink wrap like any other new book comes in.

I've never had this problem before, but it snows fairly heavily here. Upon arriving home I opened my package to find melted snow soaked through the box left out and crippled the pages with a dank odor. As we all know how this works, now whenever I'm in lab and open this bad boy, it leaves a loud crinkling sound.

My solution for the publishers is to merely add a cent onto your manufacturing of each book for shrink wrap or at minimum a plastic sleeve (even two dollar comic books have them). If you guys live in a climate like mine, I wouldn't buy this online where it will be sitting by your door until they make a post saying that it's updated. Again, this should be part of the product.
