***UPDATE: Questions AND Answers are now posted***

Welcome! I’ve created this space in order to help folks preparing for the ASCP – MLS/MT/CLS exams. 

To the foreign visitors to my page (108 international locations and counting), thanks for visiting! I took the ASCP exam but the ASCPi is just the international equivalent of the same exam. The competencies tested are the same. 

To all my visitors (313,000 plus hits), i’m humbled. I had no idea so many folks would be referred to my site by word of mouth. I’m embarassed by how inadequate my notes are and I’m making a commitment to transition what i’ve done so far into a more professional format…really!  

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, they are always welcome and appreciated. Your email will not be displayed.

    I just took my MLS exam and I passed! I stared at the screen for a while to make sure it really said “pass”.
    I want to say thank you to all your wonderful note especially the coagulation note. Although I didn’t get any coagulation question, I’m happy that I finally get the pathway down.
    In term of the exam, it was a hard exam for me. I spent all my 150 minutes. My first 40-50 questions were blood bank, micro, and immunology which are my 3 weakest subjects. I was extremely nervous. Break out:
    Blood bank
    – 5-6 questions about Abo discrepancy ( geeez)
    – 2 antibody panels- find the antibody and choose which additional cells are used to rule in and out the antibody.
    – 5-6 general questions about blood bank, technique, Dat
    -2-3 about blood products

    Micro
    – I drew my gpc and gnb chart put before I answered any of my micro question. I got 4-5 question about gpc, gnb
    – 1 question about micrococcus
    – 2 question about plasmodium – which one is not show on the blood smear in troph
    -4-5 mycology question( at this point, I was like:” why am I so not lucky”
    Immunology:
    – Ana positive shows what pattern
    – picture and pick what kind of pattern: rim, speckle, ect
    – chart of 1st and 2nd expose and tell them which a, b, c, d line are first and second response
    – 1-2 hepatitis questions… But not in a traditional form of questions . One question was like : which blood product has a greatest risk transfer hep b( so I guess this is kinda a blood bank questions)
    Chem:
    I got few easy ones: such as amalyse for mumps, tn/ tp
    2-3 blirubin questions
    Urine:
    3-5 questions
    Heme
    They were hard too but I can not remember now.
    Again, thank you for all wonderful
    Note
