Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is an impressive, computer-assisted textbook for medical histology. ... This volume will have a wide appeal in an era where "the need to know" now defines the medical curriculum, and the use of microscopes is considered a specialty skill. ... Vaughan has generated a work that will set the standard for computer-based learning of histology in the years to come."--The Quarterly Review of Biology

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Trudy Van Houten, Ph.D. on June 8, 2002
Format: Paperback
Vaughan's Medical Histology offers a highly innovative and very effective method for learning medical histology. This is a learning system designed from a student's perspective. It offers 24-hour access to a histology laboratory equipped with a high-quality slide collection and staffed by a brilliant and patient instructor. The textbook narrative is clear, concise, and accurate. The CD-ROM images are far better than the slides in most medical school teaching collections, and the labelled black and white images encourage interactive learning and self-testing. Vaughan's Medical Histology enables students to rapidly and reliably master both histological skills and histological concepts.

Deborah Vaughn is an award-winning teacher at Boston University Medical School. For a very reasonable price, Vaughan's Medical Histology enables students and instructors at other universities to benefit from her vast knowledge of histology and from her highly effective teaching methods.

Format: Paperback
I had to have this book for the on-line Histology Class I am taking. I find it difficult to read and have to refer to many other books for verification. The CD sounds like it will be great, but as the slides are shown at different magnifications the orientation is changed. I have complained to the school and made a request that they find a different text to use.
