Water test kit?

Ok I am new to this side of the aquarium hobby, right now am using the water test strips to test my water, what would youbrecommend the master kit with the drops or the strip kits?

Drops for sure.

The kit lasts a long time, it is accurate, its cheap to test, and you can get a feel for things quickly and confidently.

I've had mine since Christmas - Love it.

Liquid drop tests are more accurate than the strips. I use the API Freshwater Master Kit.
