Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1997 - Science - 512 pages
1 Review
The purpose of this book is twofold: The concise presentation in outline format enables the student initially to gain an overview of histology and later to review the discipline. This is particularly important in today's biomedical curriculum because of the reduction in time devoted to basic sciences and the dispersal of specific disciplinary materials into evolving, nontraditional curricula. Second, the inclusion of approximately 300 study questions, and integration of their answers with the text, enables the student to review histology, in a timely and efficient manner, in the context of licensing and other comprehensive examinations.

The book entitled histology is an excellent reference resource with thorough up to date current scientific findings of the histology of every part of the human body. An excellent review for USMLE 1,2,3 or pathology assistant examinations. It is also a very affordable reference for the above mentioned examinations or any other exam reqiring a complete knowlwdge of histology.
