4.0 out of 5 stars More fun than a barrel of acne remover. April 23, 2003
As textbooks go, this one is pretty good. I should warn you- pay close attention to every detail in the book. This book is not for the faint of heart- there is no fluff. Every detail counts, every fact is important. You won't find any extranneous words in this book. On a more upbeat note, the book is pretty self-explanatory. If your instructor doesn't do the best job instructing, ignore him/her (but don't tell them I said that) and just read the book- it does a very good job explaining things. Best of luck in your UA class!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written with great pictures February 12, 2006
This book is well written and has nicely detailed pictures of microscopic urines. I have a few complaints about how concise it is in certain sections. It was too brief when explaining the most often examined urine elements. I think that expanded explanations should have been included with bilirubin, urobilinogen, protein, etc. The explanation of the Ehrlich reaction in particular left me stumped. One or two more sentences would have made it clear.

The section on crystals was well done and the pictures were great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book on Urinalysis and Body Fluids! January 16, 2001
This a really great textbook about Urinalysis. It's in a clear concise easily understandable format. It also is illustrated throughout with photographs. This makes it easy for you to recognize things when you look under the microscope.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best textbook for Urinalysis! June 10, 2010
By Gigi
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was a tad bit skeptical about the rave reviews before I purchased this book but it definitely delivered!
To date I would rate this book the best UA book yet.
Not only did it give detailed explanations of urine and body fluid analysis, it also provided an easy understanding of renal function, thereby re-enforcing clinical chemistry concepts that I had learned the previous semester.
It comes with selected BOR-type questions at the end of each chapter, plus an amazing array of pictures to enhance understanding of the microscopy section.
Highly recommended for all Med Lab Science Students desiring to master the chemical and microscopic concepts behind UA and body fluids.

Very nice book. Easy to understand and take along to class. It could use a few more microscope pictures, but overall an excellent product. Very informative, and gives you what you need. Well organized too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book June 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hard to believe it was a used book, especially, considering it is a soft cover book. No highlighting or pen/pencil marks, just like was advertised. Very pleased with price and speed it was delivered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall, a good book February 2, 2014
By Ashley
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book. The only thing I don't like are the case studies at the end of each chapter. The case studies in the first few chapters assume you have read to the end of the book to fully answer. Other than that it is a good book.
