If you need beginning books, does this mean you or someone else is
studying for the ASCP HT or HTL exam?

If so, I would recommend the Self-Assessment booklets from NSH. They are 
$15 each for NSH members, and more (I don't remember exactly) for
members. Maybe if you show your pathologist the price difference, that
will allow you to use the money to join NSH. If not, why not join

There are 10 self-assessment booklets (fixation; processing/decal; 
embedding/sectioning; H&E/theory of staining; EM/IM; micro-organism;
carbohydrates; connective tissue; CNS; pigment/mineral)

Each one has about 100 questions - easy, medium and hard.
Then the questions are repeated, with the correct answer identified
and explained. They also explain what other answers could have been
correct, and why the other answers are not correct.

Great way for someone to learn, and also very helpful if you need
questions to practice for the HT exam, or for setting up 
competency assessments or continuing education.

Contact NSH at 301/262-6221

My pathologist has a book allowance and is allowing me to use this years money to buy any book that I want.  Unfortunately, I cannot use the money to join NHS.  I tried that already.  Thanks.
