For any of you considering careers in the following professions, these books will be extremely useful for learning, studying and reviewing for the Board of Registry Exam and subsequent licensing in your home state.
I've kept the most expensive textbooks off the list, because I know Most of us will not be able to afford $200 for one textbook (even if it is recommended by ASCP).
Most of these books I own, and they have been invaluable in my studies. I'm always looking for new books that are interesting.
If you have any questions about any of the books I've listed, or about the profession, feel free to ask."
"This textbook was highly recommended to me by my professors, and it is highly detailed in the bactieral sections. The Parasitology, Mycology, and Virology sections are a bit lacking in the text, so it's helpful to have additional material for those sections"
"A thin textbook on Clinical Chemistry, it's rather lacking on many details, and provides a general understanding of the main topics. It's a good start in learning chemistry, and gives you the basics... Very sophomoric, in terms of depth."
"Almost "Grad school" level, in terms of complexity and depth provided for each topic. This is a very thick book, and may give you more details on topics than you will need for your BOR exam. However, if you are in pursuit of greater knowledge in Clinical Chemistry.. it is a great book."
