Quantitative techniques for evaluating magnetic and calorimetric parameters of narrow-band and heavy fermion metals are discussed. The behavior of the electronic heat capacity at temperatures near a transition to magnetic order is emphasized. The discussion illustrates the methods used in establishing a previously published correlation between the electronic heat capacity and magnetic susceptibility of heavy Fermi liquids and their low temperature ground states.
