I took my National Exam in June. I attended a small private school in Chicago. I think our instructor's exam was harder. I am still waiting on my results, I know I passed. You should study the order of draws, the different situation that made occur with your patient and the laws.

Thank you for your addvice, I didnt know that we would have to know all the prefix's and suffix's. Does the test seem like it's Phlebotomy and medical asst. all in one?? So besides he prefix and suffix's that we have to know what else stood out in your mind that was the hardest on the test? --- jenn-ohio

I understand what you're trying to say re: the order u have to draw them in, but other people might not understand. beacause I'm a Medical Assistant and I worked for Quest Lab and did phlebotomy rounds. You may get an order for 5 different test,ok.You have to know the patients history. Of course what test are being ordered. You cant just pick up tubes and start drawing.Its very essential to know the order of draw.for exp. ur PT/INR which is blue; or patient who has surgar gy/tubes and -hemoglobin/lavender tube is good to draw before your serum/ red tubes

I have never heard of Drawing your Lavender tube before a red tube..The order of draw is Yellow (blood cultures) blue, (red gold or tiger those in no piticular order) Green, Lavender, grey, yellow (this yellow is genetic/platelet testing)

Being from Illinois, what is the state exam like? I'm good at memorizing things like rules, laws, and what not but when it comes to real life problems I don't have the best common sense. Although I passed my CNA exam so I guess I have some common sense.
Also, what is the class like? lol I'm taking it next semester.

i see you took your state cert test. I am currently getting ready to do so and I got a study guide from the school I went to (actually it was our final test, and our instructor said if we studied it and new it all we would have no problems passing.) What I'd like to know is if you would txt me so I can go over what I have on my test per what I need to know? If you are interested in helping me please text me at tamara38me@mail.com

i just finished my course and our instructor taught us this for remembering the order of color:

Yellow Birds Really Get Good Light Always

Y=yellow sps tube (bld culture test)
B=lt. blue tube
R=red tub
G=sst tube
G=gray tube
L=lavendar tube
A=all other tubes.

This order of color was what was in our text book. I'm not saying it's correct, I haven't gotten a job out there yet, but I do know this is what the text books are showing now. I hope this helps someone.
