This book is OK. The authors are not your typical Ph. D types, which I think is a major mistake to just to begin with. Bancroft and Gamble (editors) must have decided to rely on their own gramatical skills (as opposed to paying an actual editor.) I think this was a critical mistake, because simple gramatical mistakes cause me to question the quality of the work in general. Some factual information is contradicted from tables to text references. Yikes!!! I wanted to buy Sheehan's book, but I could not afford that particular text. I know that Sheehan's text is critical for HTL's. Just to save my time and your time I am not going to highlight all the mistakes that I have observed so far, but I must say that the 7th edition is not on my list of must reads. Compared to Sheehan, I would say this book is 'watered down,' focuses less on more obscure (but important) techniques, references Sheehan alot, and lacks the volume of images I would like to see. Histology is all about the staining quality... The section on fixation is disappointing to say the least. Anyway, it has some good points. I would classify the book as OK.

Self-studied from this book, earned my ASCP Histotechnologist certification without ever attending a program, and promptly found I was unemployable in the field because I hadn't attended a program.

Don't mess up how I messed up. If you want the job, say bye bye to $10,000 and a year of your life and do the dang program. This book is dense, but it'll get you through the ASCP test if you wear it out.

It's really fast by the free super saver shipping, and the quality is good, too. I would like to buy next time.
