Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Adam W Stern, DVM, CMI-IV, CFC, DACVP (University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a book for veterinary technology students preparing for national accreditation examinations that also can serve as a quick reference for technicians in the field. It covers a range of topics with the emphasis on a broad array of species including companion animals, large animals, laboratory animals, and exotic animals.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide not only a study guide for veterinary technology students but also a reference for veterinary technicians. This is a valuable book for veterinary technicians as it provides a concise review of the fundamentals of veterinary medicine. The 30 contributing authors are all veterinary technicians.
Audience: This book was written specifically for veterinary technology students and current veterinary technicians.
Features: The 29 chapters are grouped into four parts (anatomy and veterinary diagnostics, patient management, veterinary therapeutics, and professional management). Chapters provide a great deal of detail; for example the immunology and virology chapter includes a review of types of immunity and types of vaccines as well as a section on sample collection and in-clinic diagnostic testing. The numerous tables are easy to read and full of useful information and the images are of good quality. As an educator, I appreciated the step-by-step format for sample collection and evaluation of the tests. Chapters end with a set of multiple-choice review questions, and a comprehensive test appears in appendix B.
Assessment: As an educator of both veterinary technology students and veterinary students, I am impressed with the thoroughness of this book. The pictures are of good quality, but additional images are necessary in some areas where a picture would be helpful. I would recommend this book to veterinary technology students preparing to take a national accreditation examination.

I purchased this book to help me study for the Vet Tech state exam and it is amazing. Very descriptive and I love how there is a practice test at the end of the book. To me it has been hepful especially for future vet techs or assistants. Worth the money.

I am training to become a Veterinary Technician at Kaplan College and I happened to see another student with his book. I was so impressed with the amount of useful information within it, I had to pick up a copy! If you are training to be a VT, then this is a Must Have!
