To get a certification or degree one need to take a test or an exam; same goes for a phlebotomist certification. One who is prepared and knows how to apply his or her knowledge passes the exam whereas the rest of the candidates may need to re-take the test in order to get a specific certification. Every one has a unique learning style and preparation method. It is quite possible that for some one a method works very well whereas for some other it may not work at all. Therefore it is very important to know ones own learning technique so that one can prepare and practice thoroughly to get the required certification with good grades.
Phlebotomist course contains many different topics which mainly comes under the umbrella of four major categories or so called subjects. It includes ‘anatomy or physiology’ as a core subject, ‘phlebotomy techniques’ under which the whole job of a phlebotomist revolves, ‘pathology’ and finally ‘medical terminology’ which covers all the terms which any person related to medical field must know.
To prepare for the phlebotomy test one need to get hold on the above mentioned four subjects. This is a fact that memorizing certain information is not enough to pass any exam. This is even true when it comes to practical subjects. People use different methods to prepare for the phlebotomy test two of the most common of which are test study guide and flash cards.
Phlebotomy test study guide covers each and everything one can expect on the test day. It not only provides sample questions for practice but also give tips on preparing a study plan for phlebotomy test preparation. It gives complete overview of every practice that may be needed to pass the test.
Whereas phlebotomy test flash cards are a set of approx 200 to 250 cards which covers all the topics necessary to pass a phlebotomy exam and have them in the form of ‘concepts on card’. Good thing about this study method is that the flash cards are portable which makes it easy to carry them along and have a look at them whenever free.
Whichever method one selects it is very important to have the willingness to study and learn the concepts, not only the study material. One can get a deeper knowledge, rather conceptual knowledge if one structures the whole phlebotomy test preparation on their own. Moreover one must study and grab the main concept rather than just keeping the phrases line by line in their minds and not having a little know-how of what they is about. The reason behind this is the fact that the phlebotomy test consists of multiple choice questions which trick a student’s mind in many ways and only those who have the concepts can clear it.
So use any method of study to pass the exam but don’t rely on it completely. Use your own intelligence to know what suits you best and how you can best prepare yourself to secure good grades!
