Personal Website of Sohail Ahmed

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 – i’m humbled. I had no idea so many folks would be referred to my site by word of mouth (and by Magda L).

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

NEW – easy to read – high yield microbiology charts are on their way. New Gram Positive Cocci chart, Gram Positive Bacilli chart, Spirochete chart just posted!

A collection of REAL TEST QUESTIONS/RECALLS can be found under EXAM RECALLS

    Thanks for the notes! You prob don’t screen the recall questions but this one:

    “What RBC inclusion can be seen on blood smear of a child who accidentally ingested moth balls?
    Heinz bodies

    Doesn’t include the correct answer (Howell-Jolly bodies)

    Hi Sohail! I just passed my specialist in Micro certification (and yes, it’s still hard to believe!). There are no real study materials directed at the specialist certifications that I could find, but I read and re-read the information here as a basic overview. The passing strategies information was particularly useful to alleviate a bit of stress taking the exam… I finished in 90 minutes, because I always take exams (probably too) fast, but when the questions got markedly easier at the end I was encouraged.🙂 Thank you for the work you put into this!

    Hey all I just failed on my 2nd attempt feeling defeated. None of the recalls were on my MLS exam. Does any one have any advise on how to study for this? I didn’t actually go to school for this, no instructors pretty much teaching myself I got an 69 on my 1st attempt but feel like I did worse. I will try and post recalls when feeling a bit better. This site is very helpful thought!
    Any help is appreciated
