HTL exam
The following is a link to the ASCP Board of Registry web page, listing the reading lists. Note: you need Adobe 5.0 or higher to read the page.
This list is also sent to everyone who applies.
No, you don't have to order all the books. My own personal minimum recommendation for HTL (for what it's worth:
- any good atlas for tissue I
- start with the Carson books to get the basics
- then study the Bancroft/Gamble book for more details and unusual stains
- get as many NSH Self-Assessment booklets to practice taking exams.
(Suggestion to supervisors - buy these booklets for the lab. Use them to train new people, and use them to assess the cognitive (knowledge) competency of your histotechs (a CAP and JCAHO requirement).)

Hello Histonet,

I am writing this for a fellow employee who would like to ask the Histonet a question.  What text or workbooks should one get in order to study for the HTL exam?

Thanks in advance,
