Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Edward W. Bermes, Jr., PhD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is an introductory text to the field of clinical laboratory science.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide general information to the student in the field of clinical laboratory science, to be used necessarily early in the student curriculum.
Audience: The audience would be the beginning student, specifically one in the pre-clinical year(s). However, in contrast, the case studies require some background such a student would not be expected to possess.
Features: This book is a very basic introduction to the field of clinical laboratory science. The introduction to vocabulary is good and the nine chapters on system reviews are well done. The first chapter, "Introduction to the Profession," could be part of a high school career day, as the information included is almost too basic for someone who is already in a program.
Assessment: While the book is interesting, where to place it in the curriculum may prove to be a problem. The first chapter contains information needed to choose a career. The system review chapters are basic, but well done. The case studies are interesting but require more knowledge than would be expected from a beginning student.
