Clinical Laboratory Science Review is the essential resource for students preparing to sit for the certification and licensure examinations in clinical laboratory science. The order and progression of questions parallels the presentation of classroom content in CLS, and the answers serve as a study guide as well as a self-assessment. Plus, the third edition of this popular review book has been completely updated, and now includes over 850 additional, new questions on a student CD-ROM!

Key Features

  • Covers the major divisions of the medical technology (clinical laboratory science) certification examinations: hematology, immunology, immunohematology, microbiology, clinical chemistry, body fluids, and education and management
  • Provides detailed rationales that explain why one answer is correct and the others incorrect; correct answer and rationale appear on the same page as the question; and each question is followed by a test item classification
  • Includes a CD-ROM with over 850 additional questions and three test-taking options: choose the preset photomicrograph exam or "mock" exam, or use the test bank to customize your review
  • More than 200 full-color photomicrographs (50 in the text, over 150 on the student CD-ROM) provide identification practice
  • Expanded hemostasis content includes more coverage of thrombophilias and anticoagulant therapy
  • New unit on tumor markers provides up-to-date coverage of new FDA approved tests
  • New molecular diagnostics chapter includes an overview of basic principles with thorough explanations that serve as an introduction to the field
  • Problem-solving section included in each chapter
