Welcome to Clinical Laboratory Science Review, 3rd Edition.
The primary purpose of the Clinical Laboratory Science Review is to assist candidates who are preparing for certification or licensure examinations in clinical laboratory science. It can be used to prepare for the computer adaptive examinations for medical technologist (MT), medical laboratory technician (MLT), and categorical exams given by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP); computer-based examinations for clinical laboratory scientist (CLS), clinical laboratory technician (CLT), and categorical examinations given by the National Certification Agency (NCA) for medical laboratory personnel; and for certification exams sponsored by the American Medical Technologists (AMT) and the International Society for Clinical Laboratory Technology (ISCLT) and by those who wish to update their medical laboratory knowledge and renew their theoretical skills.
The Clinical Laboratory Science Review is designed to facilitate learning. The CD includes more than 800 multiple choice questions grouped into three different testing options which are described below.
