Book Preface

The primary purpose of the Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) Review is to assist candidates who are preparing for certification or licensure examinations in clinical laboratory science. This review can also be used by those who wish to update their medical laboratory knowledge and renew their theoretical skills. In addition, educators in medical laboratory science and medical laboratory technician programs may wish to recommend this review as a study guide for their students as they progress through the curriculum.

The MLS Review is designed to facilitate learning. Unlike other review books, the questions create a progression of related content. Explanations accompanying each question expand upon the content. The Fourth Edition includes 200 new questions for a total of more than 2,250 multiple-choice questions grouped into 10 content areas. Questions appear together with answers, short explanations, test item classifications, and taxonomy levels. The questions of each section comprise a thorough review of the discipline and are ordered to facilitate the coherent understanding of the subject. Mock certification exams can be created using the accompanying CD to provide additional practice. The MLS Review provides a rapid and efficient review and self-assessment. It can be used to prepare for the computer adaptive examinations for medical laboratory scientist (MLS); medical laboratory technician (MLT); technologist in blood banking, chemistry, hematology, microbiology, and molecular biology given by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) Board of Certification; and for certification exams sponsored by the American Medical Technologists (AMT).

The review begins with the Introduction section, which includes information on the design of the questions, use of this book to prepare for an examination, and test-taking skills. The introductory section is followed by questions arranged within 10 content areas. Each area contains a list of references, which are also recommended for further review. A mock comprehensive certification examination is given at the end of the question sections using questions selected from the book. This exam will help the students to determine their levels of retention and learning from the book. The CD contains a database with over 700 questions different from those in the book, including over 200 images with accompanying questions. Students can use the CD program engine to create customized exams for specific subjects or exams based upon difficulty. The materials in the MLS Review were prepared by educators and clinical experts who have national recognition for their accomplishments in medical laboratory science. Materials from recent developments in practice as well as major textbooks were used in formulating these questions. Peer review of the questions was performed as part of the publication process. The MLS Review has been designed as an individual guidebook for measuring personal knowledge and test-taking skills. It should prove to be a valuable tool for ensuring the success of the student preparing for a national certification exam, course exams, or licensure, and for the practitioner updating theoretical skills.
