These "flashcards in a book" help you remember high-yield facts in the least amount of time possible

"This is a wonderful book for students of medicine and the life sciences. The authors combine traditional topics in histology with core concepts in cell biology and medical physiology. The book is well organized and well written. This is the body of information that students of microscopic anatomy need to know to understand the foundations of clinical medicine and to succeed on future licensing examinations. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
