My suggestions:
1. When at the hospital for your training, take notes on everything you see
and learn! They will be very valuable in the future. Also, don't be afraid
to ask questions.
2.Join the NSH. A subscription to The Journal of Histotechnology is one of
the many benefits. The NSH also has an excellent set of study guides
covering all areas of histotechnology. Visit  their web site
3. Attend the NSH convention in Rhode Island. Take some of the basic
seminars. Talk with the other techs.
4. Read both Sheehan's "Theory and Practice of Histotechnology" and Carson's
"Histotechnology: A Self Instructional Text" (I think that's the title, my
apologies to Dr. Carson if I am wrong) from cover to cover. Then read them
again and take notes.
5. Post any questions you may have on the histonet, no matter how basic they
may seem. everyone benefits from this.

I hope this helps. Enjoy your training!

>Hi Histonetters!
>I have been reading along for about a month now.  I am just getting started
in histology.  At this point in time a lot of the questions asked are a
little above me but I am learning so much.  Next month I am visiting a
hospital 30 miles away for two weeks to get some intensive training.  If you
could just pause for one minute and think back to when you first started,
was there anything that come to mind that you know now that you wish you
knew back then?  Any tips, ideas, thoughts....  I am somewhat nervous.  I am
working with a fellow histonetter who is very good and don't want to seem
too clumsy.  Sorry this is so basic but some one said that the only stupid
questions are the ones not asked.  Thanks so much for your time.  Connie!~
