You are required to know how to do labs, but the procedure is usually outlined by the supervisor...I don't think that something like a titration would be practical for a 50-minute time block (and it doesn't really relate to the topics this year). So far, I have seen two fairly easy equilibrium labs and one very easy periodicity lab. Speaking of which, you CAN anticipate having one lab for equilibrium and one for periodicity (this happened at Athens and possibly elsewhere). And I agree, @Skink, an AP Chem book is incredibly useful to learn stuff, just know that (at least in the one for my AP Chem class), equilibrium takes up several lengthy chapters.
