worth getting  March 17, 2011

This is a very helpful textbook. It gives extensive result values along with what disease processes might be altering the values. It is organized alphabetically by tests and this makes it easy to read and understand. It gives very detailed instructions on how to collect a specimen and how to prepare the patient about a diagnostic test. I highly recommend it for nursing students and instructors.
