RE: BOR exam

From:Roberta Horner

I have to agree that the computer photos were awful.  I was looking for
the answer that said to restain because everything was a big blur I had
a hard time identifying the tissue let alone how to answer the question.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought the photomicrographs were
terrible on the HTL.  (And this is some years ago now..) I had a red
fuzzy blur supposedly representing IHC ~ it would have been helpful if
the it was in focus seeing as I was asked what specific structure was
staining..  All the practical knowledge in the world doesn't help
