RE: [Histonet] ASCP EXAM

From:LuAnn Anderson

I couldn't agree more. I think that the practical is the more 
important part of the exam. The stuff on the written can always be 
looked up--but just knowing what is in a fixative etc. does not mean 
one can cut good sections or troubleshoot a stain. My boss--a busy 
Neuropathologist does not relish the idea of having to include 
cutting, staining as part of a hiring interview!!!
