Advanced Exercises in Practical Physics
by Arthur Schuster
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1901
Number of pages: 392
This volume is intended for students who, having obtained an elementary knowledge of experimental work in Physics, desire to become acquainted with the principles and methods of accurate measurement. We have endeavoured to confine the apparatus required to that commonly found in laboratories.

by G.F.C. Searle - Cambridge University Press
G. F. C. Searle made notable contributions to the development of laboratory physics and theories of electromagnetic mass. This book was based on the notes prepared by Searle for his practical physics classes at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge.

These experiments should form part of a physics course which includes class discussions and demonstrations. They were used for several years in a beginners' course in practical physics. The materials and procedure have been worked out in detail.
