For a medical student, not a bad book.
on May 18, 2006
One's opinion on this book depends your purpose. This is not a comprehensive histology text, nor is it an atlas of histology. Graduate students in anatomy or histology will be disappointed.
BUT, for a medical student this book used in conjunction with an atlas is pretty good. The book reads well, has "ok" pictures, and sufficient detail for medical school histology courses. I found this book used with the DiFore's histology atlas to be sufficient. I preferred this over Wheater's book, but others in my class did use the Wheater book.
Overall, I would recommend this book to be used along with a histology atlas such as DiFore, for medical school histology.
Histology is barely present on USMLE, so don't waste your time buying this book for board review unless you just can't remember anything from histology.
