Overview

The primary purpose of the Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) Review is to assist candidates who are preparing for certification or licensure examinations in clinical laboratory science. Those who wish to update their medical laboratory knowledge and renew their theoretical skills can also use this review. In addition, educators in clinical laboratory science and medical technology programs may wish to recommend this review as a study guide to their students in various courses.

A potential user of the CLS Review may ask, "Why should I purchase this review book when several other review books are available?" The answer lies within the unique organization and explanation found with each question. Over 1500 multiple choice questions in seven major content areas appear together with answers, short explanations, test item classifications, and taxonomy levels ranging from 1 (recall) to 3 (problem solving). The questions of each section comprise a thorough review of the discipline and are ordered to facilitate the coherent understanding of the subject. Regardless of certification examination format or sponsor, the CLS Review provides a rapid and efficient review and self-assessment for the computer adaptive examinations for medical technologist (MT), medical laboratory technician (MLT), categorical exams given by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP), clinical laboratory scientist (CLS), clinical laboratory technician (CLT), categorical examinations given by the National Certification Agency (NCA), for medical laboratory personnel, and certification exams sponsored by the American Medical Technologists (AMT) and the International Society for Clinical Laboratory Technology (ISCLT).

The book contains only color illustrations.
