Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too long and difficult I used this as a lab with two college freshmen biology classes. In 110 minute lab period most students had only completed the first part (carbohydrates), and that was with me having to do a lot of the manipulations for them. I had to scrap another planned lab to continue it the next week, and still not every group completed this with about 3 hours, 30 minutes total time. The students had a hard time following the directions, and the instructions assumed they had a solid grasp on chemistry and names of functional groups, and thus didn't explain things as clearly. A few groups seemed to understand what they were doing by the end, but it was a long and painful lab, with most students seeming more confused than anything else. Also, the "correction tape" was almost impossible to use. I ended up pulling out masking tape.
