Overview

Histology and Cell Biology Examination and Board Review is specifically designed to help you make the most of your study time – whether you're studying histology and cell biology for the first time or reviewing for course exams or the USMLE. With this focused review you will be able to pinpoint your weak areas then improve your comprehension with learning aids especially designed to help you understand and retain even the most difficult material.

You will find complete easy-to-follow coverage of all the need-to-know material: fundamental concepts, the four basic tissue types, and organs and organ systems – presented in a consistent, time-saving design. At the conclusion of the book, you will find a Diagnostic Final Exam that has been updated with longer, case-related stems that mimic the USMLE Step 1 examination.

Each chapter is devoted to one specific topic and includes learning aids such as:

Objectives pointing out significant facts and concepts you must know about each topic

MAX-Yield™ study questions directing you to key facts needed to master material most often covered on exams

A synopsis presented in outline form reviewing all the basic histology and related cell biology covered on exams

Multiple-choice questions written in the style most commonly used in medical school

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bruce A. Fenderson, PhD (Thomas Jefferson University)
Description: Histology is the science of biological organization at the cellular level of complexity. Mastery of this body of knowledge enables students to evaluate tissue differentiation and understand pathologic aspects of disease. This updated fifth edition presents an outline of histology and cell biology, as well as multiple choice questions for self-assessment and board review. The 25 chapters cover important topics from nucleus and cell cycle to cartilage to special sensory organs. The focus is on modern cell biology, biochemistry, and histology.
Purpose: The book is an adjunct to the popular Junqueira's Basic Histology: Text and Atlas, 12th edition, Mescher (McGraw-Hill, 2010), and the aim is to provide "knowledge required for effective medical practice and [help students] prepare for examinations designed to test that knowledge." It provides rapid review of high-yield information for course examinations and medical licensing examinations.
Audience: It is written for students of medicine, dentistry, nursing, and allied health professions (e.g., cytotechnology and laboratory science) by an expert medical educator who understands the importance of time management and effective learning strategies for success in professional school.
Features: This compact book follows the organization of chapters and content in Junqueira's and provides a treasure-trove of information. Each chapter includes a short list of objectives, study questions, overview (synopsis), and multiple choice questions. The study questions are keyed to particular figures, tables, and sections of text to help students rapidly formulate answers. Many of the multiple choice questions are based on the interpretation of light and electron microscopic images. The answer key includes references to the text to facilitate student learning. Many of the multiple choice questions include more than five answer choices to enhance test validity. Each chapter uses informative tables and figures to emphasize key teaching points. The last chapter is a diagnostic final comprehensive examination, in which clinical vignettes simulate the USMLE. Students can use the final examination to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Answers to the final examination are explained in full.
Assessment: This is a wonderful resource for students of medicine, dentistry, and the allied health sciences. The book combines traditional topics in histology with elements of modern cell biology and medical physiology. I am not a fan of the outline format (e.g. read section 5.II.A.2) because my mind tries to remember letters and numbers. Nonetheless, the book is concise and readable. The self-assessment questions are interesting and well done. This is the body of information that students of microscopic anatomy need to know to understand the foundations of clinical medicine and succeed on future licensing examinations. Students will use this book to review key concepts in modern histology.
