    The student should complete each experiment as a study guide. Some exercises call for experimental results. The information called for, such as the appearance of serum in various phlebotomy tubes under different storage conditions, should now be part of the body of knowledge of a student who has completed the course and is preparing for the examination. Care is taken to include all common calculations, essential for the medical technologist, such as dilutions, in addition to examples of calculations for important techniques such as the use of Beer’s law and chromatographic data.

    Finally, the Questions for Discussion should be answered. Any student unable to complete data, calculations, and questions for discussion should read the pages assigned for laboratory preparation. In this case, the pages will serve a remedial function, and should be reviewed only when necessary.
