In this research, the effect of case-based laboratory practices of Analytical Chemistry Laboratory course on ‘Acid-Bases Titrations’ topic on the academic achievement of students was examined. This study was conducted with the 2nd year students (N=78) of the Science Teaching Program of a university in Izmir in the fall semester of 2014-2015 academic year. The study was pre-test and post-test control group research design. The results showed that there was a significant difference between the post-test academic achievement scores in favor of the experimental group. The results of the structured interview form also showed that the majority of the students had positive opinions concerning the case study and the material.
