They are filed away in some box stored in the garage, gathering dust.

i've got my old 1316 lab notebook if you want to have at it

Oh dear, that would be nice. :D I spilled sulfuric acid (granted, it was diluted) all over mine, so I think I got some revenge at least.

Now I wish I could also walk by the 3rd floor of the BSB w/o being able to say "It smells like flynap!!" I swear I could smell flynap everywhere for at least 6 months after genetics lab was over.

:barf: I hated the smell of flynap...

as for lab notebooks I really want to toss mine away. I don't think I ever got the one for my Bio I lab back...

At the end of each semester, I guiltily throw mine in the trash. Why? I know I will *never* look at them again.

I can't seem to to throw away books with unused pages in them...so I used my chem lab notebook to take long useless bio notes last semester:)

Ha, I never even looked at lecture notes for MCAT studying, nevermind a lab notebook. When the time comes, get yourself some good study guides, and you'll be all set.

Undergraduate lab books are used to teach you how to maintain a lab book and how to record data, methods, etc. There really isn't any use for them beyond that.

I guess you couldn't sell them to an unsuspecting freshman then...

Our Orgo lab prof collected carbon copies out of our books, so if they wanted to, they could check for future cheating.

I toss them but only after I skim through the stuff I wrote to remember how much I learned in lab. It's amazing how things that seemed so hard at the beginning seem so simple at the end. Aside from the sentimentality, I get quite a rush from getting rid of those old notebooks :).

Not if you take analytical chem lab at my school. That lab is very difficult. Most other labs are pretty simple, but the tedium really gets to me.
