Training and Teaching
From the reviews of the second edition: "That a book on teaching quality assurance in chemistry has gone into a second edition is testament to its use and popularity. ... The PowerPoint slides are particularly useful, as this text is meant for those teaching a course on quality assurance in analytical chemistry ... . Overall I would recommend this book and accompanying material for any teacher of quality assurance. ... overall as a resource this is worth the purchase." (D. Brynn Hibbert, Accreditation and Quality Assurance, Vol. 16, 2011) "The new edition ... provides an introduction to the concepts and approaches of analytical QA. ... It is written to train QA analysts and to teach beginners working for industrial/governmental services, but also in research laboratories. ... will be a great help for planning seminars to teach graduate students and practitioners in analytical chemistry with only basic knowledge of QA. ... I recommend this revised edition as a very valuable and affordable book, which should not be missing from any analytical laboratory using QA principles." (Jurgen W. Einax, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 401, 2011)
