4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"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.... 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."--Doody's Review Service
