This innovative textbook and CD-ROM package provides the most interactive case-based learning tool for clinical lab science. Cases are presented in a simulated laboratory setting allowing students to hone their clinical reasoning skills as outlined in the new curriculum guidelines, Body of Knowledge, published by the American Society of Clinical Laboratory Science. Each clinical sample includes patient demographic information establishing the case. Students are then asked to perform or interpret laboratory test results or retrieve additional test results to resolve the case – exactly as they would in the clinical laboratory.
