Review

Doody's Book Review Service, Bruce A. Fenderson, PhD, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA -- "This book provides a study guide for students taking cell biology/histology courses and serves as an excellent review for medical licensing examinations. The 21 chapters cover topics ranging from cytoplasm and organelles to urinary system in an abbreviated outline format. Clinical correlations and practice questions with explanations are included in each chapter...The book is written primarily for first and second-year medical students who are learning microscopic anatomy/cell biology and preparing for the USMLE Step 1... "A comprehensive examination is included at the end of the book. This updated edition offers online access to numerous full-color illustrations and tables, including new online photomicrographs. Bonus questions and color images are also provided online. The authors are outstanding medical educators and researchers. "This review book provides an excellent study guide for histology and cell biology. The illustrations and tables are helpful and informative. The authors emphasize key words and organize key concepts. The clinical considerations are excellent and help advanced students integrate information learned in pathology...This book will capture the attention of medical students and allied health professionals interested in self-assessment and a formatted approach to board review."-Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 90, 4 Stars) 15-OCT-2008

I just feel this book has made me understand phyio and path so much better.
Brian S. Lee
At med school you have very little time to assimilate your readings...This book helps a lot in summarizing lectures and Histology textbooks!!!!
Wajid Hussein
It's a fast, clear read with some great clinical correlations at the end of each chapter.

If you are a starting MS1 this is a good book to use for class as it has alot of good detail condensed in an outline format. It comes with a CD that has been quite helpful. However, when it comes to the Boards is just too big of a book for a subject that is not high yield- think about it- this book is just as big as BRS Path. Do you really have that much time to read a low yield subject? No. So instead for Histo- I recommend using a smaller book to review for the boards: I recommed Road Maps: Histo as opposed to High Yield Histo.

I admit, I'm a bit biased here because for my Microanatomy class we were assigned Gartner & Hiatt's Color Textbook of Histology. Since they wrote this as well, it was a great companion to the textbook. In fact, the organization is essentially (if not exactly) identical, & in this format you're given everything you need to study in under 20 pages rather than in several long chapters. This book was a lifesaver for me. I used it in conjunction with BRS Phys - get the physiology down pat, then completing the story by going through all the different cell types discussed in this book. It's a fast, clear read with some great clinical correlations at the end of each chapter. My only complaint would be that the review questions tend to focus solely on the page or so of CCs at the end & less on the concepts presented in the outlines. If you have a Cell Bio course separate from your Micro or Histo course (as I did), I don't know if the Cell Bio coverage (only 3 chapters) will be sufficiently in depth, but what's there is definitely high yield. Bottom line - you'll definitely want this book if you're using G&H's text. If not, I thought it was a great (& fast) review book for the NBME, & ultimately worth the money regardless of your assigned text.

A must have. Really important and understandable facts in the light of USMLE. I'm reading some other books on this subject too, and I have inferred that this one is very good.

Format: Paperback
This book is broken into systems and has nice board related pathology info at the end of each chapter. Exp: The Chapter on Neuro Histology will give you a clear understanding of the histo, physio, and then give pathology examples such as what happens when there is demyelination->MS.

I was never taught histology, but this book is so well laid out, I could make the correlation between histo, phys, and path. Excellent resource if you want to understand histo in a short period of time. I see where other people say it's not high-yield enough. That may be true. But what's the point of memorizing specific details if you don't understand the big concepts they pertain to. If you have a strong background in histo then I would recommend something else.

I just feel this book has made me understand phyio and path so much better. It's like biochem. Gives you better insight on the mechanisms of pathophys. I was very disappointed with BRS Phys, but BRS Cell Bio and Histo is the real deal. I would scrap BRS Phys and just buy the Histo one.
