"This is a valuable study aid in histology, particularly in preparation for board review. The explanatory text is succinct, and the visual identification and clinical relevance of topics are emphasized. The quality of illustrations is exceptional and the combination of gross anatomic views with microscopic images presents histology in the context of gross anatomy, which helps students understand the correlation of structure and function. In the modern learning environment that employs problem-based and integrated curricula for medical and dental students, clinical information is highly valuable. To enhance the value of the flashcards even more, the names of the cells, tissues, structures or organs could be moved from the front to the back of the card. Currently, users do not have to identify what is presented on a card, unless they make a special effort to cover the top of a card. In addition, the number of microscopic images could be increased to replace some of the Netter's illustrations."-Jose Tafur, MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation) Doody Review: 5 stars
