5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Source
I got this book because I am a nursing student and I thought it would supplement my classes. I had no idea exactly how useful it would be. This is the PERFECT reference for every test. It gives more information than my textbooks even give. It doesn't only contain lab draws but also colonoscopy, CT scans etc. It doesn't skimp on information. The book is physically on the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
Nice small size, but I can't say it has everything I could ask for. I would say I can find about 60-70% of what I'm looking for with this book. The rest of the time I still need to search the Internet. Sometimes I feel like one particular website is a better resource. I am in dietetics.

This review is from: Mosby's Diagnostic and Laboratory Test Reference, 9e (Mosby's Diagnostic & Laboratory Test Reference) (Paperback)
I got this book because I am a nursing student and I thought it would supplement my classes. I had no idea exactly how useful it would be. This is the PERFECT reference for every test. It gives more information than my textbooks even give. It doesn't only contain lab draws but also colonoscopy, CT scans etc. It doesn't skimp on information. The book is physically on the smaller side, which is good because you can keep it with you when you need it. However, it contains all of the information you need regarding testing.

The book provides how the test is performed, normal ranges for adults, older adults, and children, as well as a narrative description of the purpose and procedure of the test. This description can range from a half page to 5 or 6 pages of very useful, concise information. It gives a great picture of what the test consists of and what is being evaluated. Pagana & Pagana also describe what might cause variations in test results. Finally, at the end of each entry they include a list of what increased levels and then decreased levels might indicate, in order of prevalence. I have used this book countless times and it helped me understand better than any textbook could. I'd also consider it very easy to comprehend. It's a great resource. Lastly, it has contained every test I have ever tried to look up, even uncommon maternal blood draws that I could not find by searching online.

This review is from: Mosby's Diagnostic and Laboratory Test Reference, 9e (Mosby's Diagnostic & Laboratory Test Reference) (Paperback)
The book does have some key point about diff labs and such, but I've always had to look else where for more info. It does not provide enough information to be worth buying it.

This review is from: Mosby's Diagnostic and Laboratory Test Reference, 9e (Mosby's Diagnostic & Laboratory Test Reference) (Paperback)
This is a very helpful reference. I used it all through nursing school and have even used it to look up personal stuff. It tells you about different blood work and the reasons your labs might be high or low to help you understand better.
