I needed to be able to identify slides of the different tissues, and be able to label the different components of it. This atlas has been of great help. It does not have much on text or background on the tissues, but it does have tons of pictures to train your microscope eyes. Have not come across the issue of not finding a picture of the tissue I am currently studying. Also, labels the different components of the tissues, not just the layers. I was very pleased with this.
As a side note this book just shows normal tissue, not pathology.
The only thing I did not like about it was the binding. For a $60 book, I would think they could afford a better plastic coiling binding. As it stands now, I have to continuously readjust the binding to make sure it holds all the pages. Planning on taking it to a print shop to get a better binding.
A suggestion to the manufacturer would be to place this in a binder of some sort, so that student can just take the pictures they need with them, rather carrying around the whole book.
