RE: [Histonet] HTL blocks needed

From:"Sherri Anderson"

Dear Yan:

Hello.  Unless the practical portion of the HTL has changed since I've taken 
the examination (1999), examinees are required to prepare their own blocks 
(I think that you can have help with grossing so that the tissues 
demonstrate the required structures and are of the correct size), but 
everything else is supposed to be done by the examinee.  This would include 
embedding.  Most of the blocks are then submitted along with the slides for 

Good luck with your exam!
