There are a few great ways to study for studying science safety and tools test. You can begin by taking the study guide and your schools safety rules and procedures.  Create note cards to help you memorize the particular rules and related tools.  When studying with note cards, put the question, word or picture on one side and the answer on the back.  Read the question, word or picture and answer it.  Check yourself.  If you are correct lay it in one stack.  Incorrect answers go in a different stack.   Go back and reread and requiz until you can answer all the questions.  It is important that you go back over the note cards for several night to ensure that you are able to recall all the information needed.  If you miss a question, move the card and restart the process.  Safety in Science labs are very important and it is necessary that you know how to conduct yourself safely.  Good luck!

You can watch videos about science safety and scientific tools, read the lessons from the books or goggle them and read the information. Grasp them and try to solve quizzes for better understanding.

There are various scientific tools which are used by students, scientists, botanists, astronomers, etc for precise measurements and observations. Based on your level you can google and watch video for their use. 

Some of the Safety tips to be followed in a laboratory are stated for your reference:

  • Follow all verbal and written instructions.
  • Work in the lab only in the presence of the teacher or lab instructor.
  • Familiarize yourself with the procedures and  manuals, resources and guidelines for working in your school's laboratories. These include chemical safety information and laboratory equipment safety information
