Hitchhiker's Guide to First Year Physics Labs at UCD
by Philip Ilten
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 197
The book is intended to complement the University College Dublin first year laboratory manuals, but can also be read independently. The UCD labs span a wide range of subjects, and consequently so do the chapters of this book, beginning with experimental techniques, moving onto classical mechanics, touching on EM, and ending with a variety of more advanced topics.

These web documents contain supplementary material for laboratory work in the introductory physics course. They provide a point of view which some laboratory manuals lack. A large part of this material commonly goes by the name 'error analysis'.
