For practical classes we recommend that you use an A4 ring-binder with lined paper for taking notes and blank paper for diagrams.
You will also need a lab coat and enclosed shoes for every practical class in accordance with standard laboratory safety procedures. Without either of these you will not be allowed entry to the laboratory.
Lecture graphics and recordings will be available on ilearn (http://ilearn.mq.edu.au).
