It's true that these cards aren't in the traditional flashcard Q&A format, but these cards are a great way to review for the certification exam or just to keep on top of things. There's no fluff whatsoever and so far I haven't come across anything that is incorrect or severely deficient for the ASCP/NCA exam, with the exception of the blood bank section, which only grazes the surface in that area.

If I had to pick a single resource to study for the ASCP MLS exam, I would pick this. It's easy to understand, well organized and comes with helpful explanations for everything you would need to pass the exam. The charts and tables are superb.

If you couple this with the CLS Review book from Harr, you'll pass the exam on your first attempt.

I would suggest getting the physical cards that you can hold in your hands rather than the electronic format b/c you can make notes on them and divide them up into smaller piles by subject.

I have a review site for this exam (look up wordsology on google) where I have some examples of the Polansky cards for you to take a look at if you are still not sure.

The are not flash cards. The information you need to know is broken down in to sections and put in to table format so it makes it easier to memorize and refer back to. I hole punched my cards and put them on book rings, so that I didn't have to lug around the whole stack all the time. Buy these cards when you start the clinical laboratory science training program because they are also super helpful throughout training, not just for preparing for the state licensing exam. I highly recommend!

I expected question on one side and answer on the other side of the supposed Review Cards. Isn't that what Review Cards/Flash Cards are supposed to be?
Instead, it's just outlines of summarized info. It's like Cliff Notes in card format.
I give it 3 stars - an OK rating, bec. I did like the straight-to-the-point writing style.

These cards are really going to come in handy to study for the board exam. It's a very large stack, organized and numbered according to subject matter. So, if you want to concentrate more on one particular subject like hematology or microbiology, you can study just that group of cards. It's one more tool you can use that will help you pass the boards. I also recommend them just for studying for tests in class. It contains the basic information and I wish I had gotten them at the start of training to help me study for tests. I recommend them.

Believe me, I only had 3 weeks to concentrate on my review for the MT(ASCPi)examinations. With such very little time, I even scheduled my flight as a study time and to finish 1 subject in 2 hours. I was able to read the entire Urinalysis & body fluids topic while on board the plane on my way to Manila for the exam. That was fast, yet it helped me focus on important things to remember that are frequently asked in the exam. Quick review cards by Polansky helped me a lot, and prayers too. I was able to pass the exam the following day. Thanks to Polansky for such a great help.

I just want to say that these cards are AMAZING! I took them to kinkos to hole punch the corners (cost me about $2) and then bought binder clips from staples (about $6) and was able to separate each section so I can pick and choose the sections I want to study. The charts are so great and makes it so easy to learn the different anemias, bacterias, coagulation factors, etc. I am also taking practice tests on labce.com and as I study each section, I see my scores going up drastically.
I'm not one who can sit and study for hours so these are great because I can keep them in my purse and pull them out for 10 minutes while in a waiting room or while eating lunch and learn little bits at a time.
You definitely won't regret this purchase.

I didn't purchase these until after I finished Med Tech school. Mistake.... They could have helped me during class/rotation. But they did help me with the exam. They aren't really flashcards. But they hold a wealth of information.

I kept my cards loose, but a classmate of mine punched a hole in her's and slipped an o-ring through them... handy girl.
