Prentice Hall Health's Question & Answer Review of Medical Technology/Clinical Laboratory Science, Third Edition,has been designed to help examination candidates to prepare fob national certification or state licensure examinations. It is also a useful tool for practicing clinical laboratory scientists as a source of "refresher" information. The excellent reception received by the first two editions of the book spurred the writing of this third edition. Educators and students alike have commented that the strength of the book is in the paragraph explanations that accompany each answer. In this way users of the book can more easily augment their knowledge or clear up misunderstandings. To enhance the third edition and to make it even more valuable to users, new features have been added and some changes have been made. A color plate of 60 full-color pictures has been included to provide the user with experience in answering questions based on a color photo. Additionally, the 200-question self-assessment test has been revised and a 100-question self-assessment test for the CD-ROM has been developed as mechanisms for final evaluation of one's knowledge, thus allowing for the identification of one's strengths and weaknesses while there is still time to improve. The book contains more than 2000 multiple choice questions that cover all the areas commonly tested on national certification examinations and state licensure examinations. The majority of questions have been revised or updated based on current clinical laboratory practice, terminology, and taxonomy. Additional case study questions have been incorporated into this edition. Many of the paragraph explanations have been revised, and matching puzzles have been added to the CDROM to further assess knowledge. Overall, this book provides the essential components needed in an effective medical technology examination review book. We hope that you find this book and the accompanying CD-ROM useful, and we wish you success with the examination and with your career as a clinical laboratory scientist.
