The purpose of this study is to investigate the opinions of second grade Chemistry Education students about drawing concept maps (CM) on the subject of gravimeter studied in Analytical Chemistry II class. For this purpose, volunteers (n=23) were asked to draw four CMs during the gravimeter chapter. After they had drawn all four concept maps, they were asked to write their opinions about this practice, anonymously. According to the descriptive analysis results obtained from the feedback form, the majority of students indicate positive opinions on the CM. Some students stated that they had difficulty in creating CM and some of these difficulties were presented in the text. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
