Nita, what are you being told is wrong? I think all of us do it the way you
do. Hang in there! j

I'm with you, embed on a slant, as you described, so as to hit your knife at
different points.

  I have a question regarding "proper embedding"---I have been practicing
for 35 yrs., am at new position and funny thing, I do things incorrectly---

  Anyway, correct embedding--epithelium from skin - "all going same way" but
I embed on a slant not  in a straight row. The knife blade hits one piece at
a time not the entire
  "straight " line.

  Glenda Hoye and the instructors- do you have a reference?
