KarB in Saint Albans, New York said: 30. Why is albumin the first protein to be detected in tests for renal failure?
a. It’s molecular size is large
b. Its molecular size is smallest
c. It is very negatively charged.

Please add question you guys remember seeing on your exam or the forum.

Hi KarB,
Thank you very much for posting the questions. Those are very helpful and I appreciate very much for your kind effort.

Yes, I had a couple of bilirubin/urobilinogen in urine questions. And borader; liver disease states.

I also seemed to have more mycolgy than I had prepared for. But that's probably because I didn't prepare for it. :) Malassezia furfur was on there (that was kind of a gimmie, and someone else mentioned it).

A few protein electrophoresis questions. One molecular question regarding steps in PCR (denature, primers added to single DNA strands, mixed with heat stable polymerase).

Two Ab panels, and about 3-4 questions on typing discrepencies. Also three or so questions about component storage requirements (cryo following pooling, what to do if the patient has a radiology procedure that will end after the product(s) are expired (I said re-schedule the radiology procedure).

So in the comment above they said the corr wbc question was out of 50 cells so wat part of the formula do u change to 50? The formula is number of wbcs x (100 / (nrbcs + 100)) im assuming its the nrbcs + 50 ? And keep the other 100? Thanks to neone who can help

nmon in Bedminster, New Jersey said: Hawk in Fresno, California said: Everything I listed is excellent for the exam, especially if you have little time to prepare.

A bottom line approach, wordsology, Harr is you want, and make go through all of the indeed comments related to ASCP exam and write down known exam questions.....even if the person says no your protein electrophoresis....than quickly memorize what the 5 main SPEP'look like. It only takes a few minutes.

When you find information that is known to be on the exam, it's like finding gold, because thats a piece of informaiton that has a high prpobabilty of being on the exam. I will tell you this: I made of a known exam sheet of over 100 questions from indeed and over 40% were on the exam.

One more thing, get to know disease states.

Hi Hawk..can you please send me questions as well if you don't mind...thank you!

Hello hawk, asking for your help as well. I will be taking the cls ascp in 2 months . Thank you in advance!

just took ascp exam and passed ohhhhhh yaaaa. First I would say I studied for a month and about 2 weeks of that was hardcore b/c I didnt remember much and like everyone else thought I was failing halfway through.First for resources I have all 4 (Jarreau, BOR, Harr, and Polansky)Jarreau is the best hands down, followed by BOR book. Dont bother with Harr (he can go suck a fat one) or Polansky. Also I used the ASCP outline on their website for the micro part and diesnmagle notes they sent me from this forum helped alot. ALSO its good to know about alot of stuff to help rule out answers, I looked at each answer and tried to rule it in or out, I finished with 5 mins left tho! now ill just spill out everything I can. Some are repeats from others comments but they were right.Dont spend too much time on mycology,parasite,molecular,or immunology.If you have time I would do immuno then mycology. Urines and body fluids were useful to study tho.
Corr wbc count with 50 cells ( I changed it to wbc X 50 divided by (nRbcs + 100),
Blood bank discrepancies, panels, enzymes, what to do next, check freezer temp every 4 hrs!
ANA patterns, abs, diseases
conj and unconj bili, urobilinogen,inc and dec
coag inc and dec ptt,pt
cocaine metabolite, moth ball intoxication ( i guessed basophilic stippling still cant find it)
screw therap drugs and monitoring not useful
know which anemias are micro/macro/hypo/hyper, I calculated rbc indices to rule out answers.
question on lyme disease i forgot what it asked.
how to measure HDL (precipitate out other lipoproteins)
apoliprotein A is in what lipoprotein.
density of proteins in decreasing to ascending order I dunno what IDL is but I put it in between VLDL and LDL.
Normal total CK but increase in troponin in what? (got it down to unstable angina or acute M.I)
urine from catheter rapid analysis only need to setup which two plates for micro?
nitroprusside detects what?
gardn vag needs human blood
continue in next post

Hi PRD in Michigan,
Congrats for passing this exam. You might be very relief. Thanks for posting all those questions.
I would like to know which route you registered for taking the exam? For example, within 5 years after graduation or with work experience?
I graduated 7 years ago and I don't know which route I should register for.
Please advise me.

PRD,
Thanks for the suggestion. I also finished 4 years MT program and internship. I know I am eligible to take the exam. I just want to know.. didn't you need to choose the route when you register ? Like Route 1, Route 2, etc..
If not, they might change the registration format. Anyway, I will check with them. Thanks again.

dienstagsmaedle in Moraga, California said: Hello -

I've been lurking on this forum for a little while, as I was preparing for the ASCP MLS exam, which I took today, and happily, passed. I wanted to write to echo what 'Hawk in Fresno' mentioned a while back about using this forum as a study guide in itself. I went through a good portion of the posts on this thread, and came up with a list six pages long of topics (and even some actual questions), from the recollections of people who recently took the exam.

This list was great - I'd say at least 1/2 (if not more) of what I encountered today was on this list. So, perhaps the current version of the test is made up of rearrangements of a finite number of validated questions and one might be wise to pay attention to recent 'actual questions'. They're pretty specific - like how cocaine is metabolized - I glanced at that as late as last evening , and there it was today, on the exam.

I'm happy to scan and email my list if you would like a copy - it's not pretty, but it seems to have helped.

hi. congrats for passing. would you ind emailing me also your scanned notes? (churros133@gmail.com) thanks
