This book originally started with a few directions for medical students and doctor's assistants who were called on to perform urinalysis andblood counts. It was found that the brief manner of presentation of the methods was quite convenient. The present edition is an outgrowth of an abundance of new material and new experiences which have accumulated since the appearance of the second edition. The entire style of the book embodies brevity. The directions are outlined and concise. The book should be useful to technicians who wish to brush up on the various standard methods of laboratory procedure. On pages 673 to 675 is given a list of one hundred and five laboratory reference books. The index is quite clear. The illustrations are simple and somewhat schematic. At the end of each chapter are assembled questions covering the preceding text.
