    extremely helpful

    I thought I would get this book to get a head start on a phlebotomist
    course upcoming. I feel I will use it
    even after hopefully I am a working phlebotomist.

    Decent work book

    Used this book for my Phlebotomy class in California. Has all information needed for minor national exams & state exam. I recommend getting an exam review textbook along with this textbook. They share basic information but some exam reviews have extra helpful knowledge found on the major national exams such as the one for ASCP.
