I was introduced to this book, a few editions back, during my Nurse Practitioner course work. It is the single, best, laboratory resource book I have ever used. It guides me daily in my clinical practice. I give it highest marks and recommend it to anyone in clinical practice.

Format: Paperback
This well-written manual tells how and why labs are drawn, what the numbers mean, and gives reasons for abnormal values. It includes relationships among different tests and test results. Fabulous! I think this book is indispensable for patients and caretakers, as well as home care nurses who want to know what all those numbers mean, and how to interpret changes.

I love this book. It provides all the information you need in a very readable format. I've been a medical writer for over 20 years, and this is the book I always turn to when I need to know more about a particular laboratory test. Every time it is updated, I buy the new version.

My only issue with this book is that the index doesn't always match up with the page numbers, but it gets you close to where you need to be so you just have to flip forward or backwards a couple of pages. Its a good idea to just tab the pages yourself. Other than that its a good book with accurate and useful information.

Over the years, I have purchased 5 different lab reference manuals. This is the most comprehensive and easily understood lab reference manual I have ever owned.
