"This is a great set of questions to test one's fund of basic clinical laboratory science knowledge. A word of caution - medicine does evolve and some of the answers may no longer be current. There are also occasional errors. If a reader doesn't think an answer is correct, they should research it and let the authors know the correct answer for the next edition." --Doody
