Hi Don:
I think I know you, I started Histology back in 1975  and became
registered in 1976.
I remember taking a course from Lee Luna at one of the Histology
seminars.  Maybe even the first Histology Seminar at C.W. Post College in
Long Island.  Do you remember Dominick Europa?  I also did OJT and used a
text by Ann Priece to study by.  Things are so much different now, I
guess you can take your exam by computer.  Is this true?
I took my test up in Burlington VT ." Luna " -I have my study questions
that my boss made up for me when I took my exam.  I'd be happy to copy
them off and send them to you if you'd send me your address.  Don is
right , the NSH has a wealth of information.
Good Luck.
