In order to make the 'the student' better and fully equipped to tackle the task of experimentation in this subject had added to the 'bbok contents' : (i) Experimental Discussions-How to write them, (ii) Some unique discussiions, (iii) An expanded, 'Think and Grow Rick Tank' and (iv) Multiple choice questions.

Further to make this book 'A Time Saver' and an 'Economically Viable Proposition' graphs wherever needed have been added to facilitate the usage of this book as a 'Laboratory Manual' too.
