RE: [Histonet] ASCP EXAM

From:"Kaye Ryan"

Actually I totally agree with you.  I have seen many people that are
great at memorizing information and great at test taking but cannot for
the life of them cut a quality section.  In our HT program we will NOT
get rid of the practicum project they must do while in their clinical
rotations.  If they don't pass their project, they do not pass the
course.  I think this change has really put more pressure on the schools
to make sure we graduate students that know how to cut a decent section
as well as competent in the areas of troubleshooting.  We all hope that
the schools do attain this goal but being in the profession of so many
years I know that true troubleshooting abilities come with experience.

Just my thoughts,

I cant believe they stopped the practicum part of the test. I just took
a few years back. I would never be the tech I am had I not had to
and cut hundreds of slides looking for that perfect one or that
stain, tissue etc.  Just my opinion, Cheri
