Overview

Maximum retention in minimum time!

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

Drawn from the perspectives of recent graduates fresh from their medical school and USMLE experience, Deja Review books focus specifically on what is essential for success on your course exams and the USMLE.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bruce A. Fenderson, PhD (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: Histology and cell biology are essential prerequisites for advanced training in the biomedical and life sciences. They also provide a foundation for understanding pathological mechanisms of disease. This concise, paperback book reviews core concepts and identifies high-yield facts. Its 23 chapters cover traditional topics in histology and cell biology, from the organization of connective tissue to mechanisms of vesicle transport in epithelial cells. The focus is on cell biology, biochemistry, and medical histology.
Purpose: According to the authors, the aim is to help readers understand histology and cell biology without memorizing isolated facts. With this purpose in mind, the authors have compiled interesting questions and short answers that provide a self-directed means for rapid assimilation of core concepts, self-assessment, and board review. The goal is to help students excel on course examinations and USMLE.
Audience: The book is written for students of medicine, dentistry, nursing, and all allied health professions (e.g., cytotechnology and laboratory science). Undergraduates in the biomedical life sciences also will appreciate this book. It is written by expert medical educators and it assumes that students will have taken, or are taking, a general course in histology/cell biology.
Features: This compact review is user-friendly and fun to read. The black-and-white illustrations and line drawings are well done and educational. Clinical correlates and vignettes provide medically-relevant examples. Tables help organize complex sets of information. The questions and answers are brief and to the point. Examples include: "Why is the human genome so large?" and "What mucosal structures contribute to the absorption function of the small intestine?" Once you begin to read these questions, you are pulled along. Learning becomes more enjoyable.
Assessment: 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.
