About Me

This website came to fruition in 2013 as I sat outside a testing center on 34th Street in NYC. Although it was breezy and I needed to avail myself of a restroom, I first wrote down as many questions as I could recall from my own exam, which had just ended. I then uploaded my strategy and notes – the very strategy and notes that helped me pass.

My parents moved from South Asia to NYC in the early 70’s so I was born and raised in Little Odessa/Brighton Beach, a Russian and Ukrainian neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Although my genetic material is South Asian and i’m technically made in the USA, most of my friends and folks outside my home environment spoke Russian. This is still pretty normal in the cultural milieu that makes up so many parts of Brooklyn. To this day, I fit in nowhere and everywhere – and that’s the way I like it.

I’m fluent in English and Urdu/Hindi and just a beginner with Spanish and Russian.

My favorite city is in Siberia. It’s called Novosibirsk. My favorite animals are my cat (Sophie) and a dog (Sif) who lives in Follafoss, Norway.

This page won’t help you with the ASCP exam, but now you know how people dressed in the 1970’s.

    Hi Sohail. I have not taken the ASCP Test yet but I am sooooooooo impressed and touched by your effort to help a lot of people aspiring to be Clinical Laboratory Scientists. You are such a smart, wonderful, and very giving person.
    If you are ever in Northern California (San Francisco or Silicon Valley Area), it will really be such a pleasure to take you to lunch/ dinner.
    Please feel free to email me if you are in my area.
    Thank you soooooooo much again.
    I wish you the BEST of everything.
