Re: ASCP Registry exam study material

From:"Judith A. LaDuc" <>


Thank you for the correction of CD Rom vs. disk.  It has been out of sight
for so long, I didn't recall correctly and I apologize for any confusion.
The Board of Registry (ASCP) can be reached at  or
e-mail them at
It is unfortunate that this disk is temporarily unavailable, because I sure
have received a lot of e-mails about it.
