A good board review book for histo/cell bio, May 20, 2000

I felt that this was a good book to use for board review purposes. The outline format, like all the BRS books, is easy to follow and makes it easy to look up info. The end of chapter questions are the best part by allowing you to see if you really understood what you just read. It does not have the number and quality of pictures that a good atlas would have but it is a good book to use to supplement a histo atlas.
