Default Handbook



Hello,

I plan to buy for my lab the "Handbook of Chemistry and Physics" (CRC Press)
in the CD-ROM edition.

Has anyone ever used it ? Since this CD-ROM is quite expensive, I'd like to
know if it's worth the cost. Are the search engines on the CD-ROM efficient,
especially for organic compounds ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I do not remember the difference between a book and CD, but wasn't too
much. The main reason to buy CD (we already have a book) was ability
to load it on a laptop. Pages are stored as pdf files, plus rather
shonky index. I use it like a book. Seldom use search facility. You
have to be careful with an instalation, when you run, the handbook
opens inside a browser. Acrobat inside the browser is not the best
idea. Anyway, it is much more portable (for me) I can use it at home
and at work. BTW at home I have the handbook but in students edition.
much cheaper and almost as good.

The thing to do is try it out before you buy. Surely there must be
a copy of this in a university library someplace.

Here's a possible test for the search engine. Look up the index of
refraction of guinnea pig urine.
