Q: When will the labs start?
A: Timing of the lab sessoins is detailed in the syllabus of the course.

Q: The questions that you have given at end of each lecture, would that be enough to prepare for the quiz or is there any other material which would help?
A: The questions at the end of the lectures give you an idea of what to expect at the quiz but it is not enough to simply know the answers to those questions.

Q: I was wondering if chapter 2 of the book: Atomic Structure and Interatomic Bonding will be in quiz1.
A: YES - The quiz will include chapters 2 and 3.

Q: Is the midterm going to reflect the dgd and assignments problems? Would it be possible for you to put up a practice midterm? So we know what to expect?
A: The midterm is mainly going to reflect what we covered during the lectures. Of course, you also need to know how to solve problems as seen in the DGDs and assignments.
