From The CriticsReviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a compilation of practice test questions for the National Certification Agency (NCA) for Clinical Laboratory Sciences - Clinical Laboratory Scientists (CLS) and Clinical Laboratory Technicians (CLT).
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to provide a review in exam-like format for those anticipating taking the CLS or CLT certification exam.
Audience: This book is ideal for CLS or CLT students at any point in their training, and especially for those about to take their certification exam. Some of the material might also be useful for laboratory medicine residents to review prior to sitting for their pathology board certification exam.
Features: This paperback book consists of seven chapters. The first six contain questions relevant to the traditional disciplines of a clinical laboratory (chemistry, hematology, immunohematology, microbiology, immunology, laboratory practice). The review questions presented in these first six chapters have the answers immediately following each question, complete with a concise discussion of relevant issues and referenced with the relevant pages in the referenced material. The final chapter has two separate practice exams - one consisting of 285 questions and the other 306 - both integrating diverse topics and providing a comprehensive review. Finally, the book comes with a CD-ROM containing an additional 500 practice questions. Anyone who has the fortitude to go through all these practice questions should certainly be well prepared for their certification exam!
Assessment: I would highly recommend this book to anyone preparing to take the CLS or CLT certification exam.
