Re: [Histonet] ASCP Exam

From:"Kaye Ryan"


Yes, the practical portion of the exam has been done away with.  I had a
student that just took the exam.  There are many more troubleshooting
questions now on all aspects of histology.  My recommendations based on
what the student told me is that you need to really focus on
troubleshooting of special stains as well as fixation and cutting.  As
far as I can tell, the study guide has not been updated and I don't know
if it will be.

Good luck,
