	My best advice is to contact your local Histology lab talk to the
director and see if you can shadow a professional for some time. Also some
good books are available: Histotechnology a self-intructional Text - Frieda
Carson, Theory and Practice of Histotechnology - Sheehan and Hrapchak, and
Bancroft and Stevens. Good luck!
