Electrical resistivity measurements are reported on several metallic glasses based on Pr and Tb, and Ga and various transition metals as the glass formers. In general negative temperature coefficients were observed and these are discussed in terms of the extended Ziman theory and the tunneling or localization theory. Low temperature structure in the resistivity can be understood with the coherent exchange scattering model of Asomoza et al.
