Yes, I recommend
Good beginning lab - The actual materials of the lab aren't anything to brag about (triple beam balance, dowels, string, rulers and calipers). The lab write-up itself is really nice though. It is a great introduction to measurement, significant figures, error, etc. It is a relatively quick lab for students to perform also, which is nice. I recommend it to teachers doing an AP Physics course.
