      Just take it; it is fun! Really it is the second lab that does a lot of the more interesting multiple step reactions and separations. At my school, we had to I.D. an unknown molecule by using different tests. That was a killer lab.

        I've always gotten the impression, from discussions with registrar's offices and stuff, that actually it is the lab part that is most important to some schools. I'd say definitely take it.

        I figure the rationale for emphasis on labs is that you can learn facts until they pop out your ears, but it's harder to make up for lost experience with doing physical tasks (especially if you don't have the equipment in your garage, but you do have books, so you can catch up on study more easily).

        Take lab! Fun! :clap: (but sometimes hard) :scared:

          I'll just jump in to reiterate Fantasia's comment you should check with the dental schools where you plan to apply. My gut feel is that one of those schools will require you take a 2nd semester of OChem with Lab. And if that's the case, then it's definitely worth it to take the lab.
