We analyze the extent to which the equation of state and other thermodynamic properties of systems of hard nonspherical molecules can be obtained from a density independent hard sphere reference system. We conclude that the median and Barker-Henderson prescriptions effectively reproduce all data now available. We discuss the motivation for these two formulations in detail.
