I am glad for the opportunity to review this book. It is a good outlet for the annoyance I feel at being forced to purchase it. The book ($34.95) and its accompanying course ($135.00) is compulsory in order to get licensed (at least in my state). They are both procured through the "Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM"). One may not take the course without purchasing the book, which must be the latest edition and may not be borrowed or copied from someone who has previously taken the test. The editions change frequently. I galls me that the same agency that sets the standards stands to profit from their own requirements. Clean needle technique is important but there is no reason why acupuncture schools cannot incorporate this information into their curriculum (as do nursing schools).

Very well written book, however I have several blank pages. No one seems to be willing to fix the problem. I get a hold of Amazon and they tell me to get a hold of the publisher, I call the publisher and they do not return my calls.

You are buying this for the test, because for some reason it is required for you to do, not once, but twice (at least it was in Florida). Personally, I think if you complete this course during your time at school then you should get tested then and get your certificate instead of having to take a second course outside of school (which is exactly the same). It's a bit of a scam having to do this twice.

I compared this edition and the 5th edition side by side, and the new information is pretty much just about Hepatitis. A lot of this stuff is common sense, but you need to know the terminology used to pass the CNT exam. I say just get the 5th edition for a penny, know your hepatitis facts, and if you have HB Kim, all the 6th edition material is in the back.

a Quick read, and tells you exactly what the accepted protocols are, and what should be complied with. So when time for testing you know exactly what is expected

It is hard to rate a book that is required reading, and this book is required for the Clean Needle Technique course and exam that is part of the process of acupuncture licensing. The book presents the necessary information in a clear and straightforward way, and is as interesting as a text of this type can be. It is not an overwhelming amount of information, which I appreciate since I am also studying for the national acupuncture exam. Another reviewer mentioned that one must buy a brand new copy of this book, not another person's used copy, for the Clean Needle exam. That is not so; there is no "oversight" as to where you purchase your book. The only requirement is that the book be the most current edition. That is not a moneymaking ploy; it is simply to ensure that the most current knowledge and laws and practices around needle technique are included in the book, which is periodically updated. And for all the thousands of dollars spent in the entire process of becoming an acupuncturist, this is a relative bargain!

On to the refernce shelf while waiting to get back to school. It is pretty much common sense - but a necessity for those who are going into the business treating clients with acupuncture. The use, disposal and charge of supplies are important in keeping everyone safe. Not a bad idea to have information like this in the workplace.

This is required for the CNT course for students of acupuncture. The book has all you need to do great on the exam and to pass the practical portion of the test. The information is up-to-date and relatively easy to read.
