08/31/10 Assignment 1: 1. A chemist is arguing that sampling is not as important as analysis. His concern is whether there is a need for a sampling course in an environmental curriculum. His main rationale is that most employers and governmental agencies already have their own training courses and very specific and detailed procedures.
