    Medical School Histology

    This is the only text you need to read for medical school first year histology. Our professors repeated it word for word. I highly recommend it.

    Excellent Reference Work and Study Guide

    I teach first and second year medical students and require my cell biology, histology, and A&P students to practically memorize every word in this book. The author does an excellent job in his presentation of the material. This volume is a must for any medical student or person studying biology on the graduate level.
