NEED MORE IN DEPTH TOPICS
By Aydarus M. on 30. December 2018 for Histological Techniques and Staining

It was great it had everything I need EXCEPT the problem is it is like a revision as if I have already taken this I need more in-depth lessons this feels like an overview and I really need this because I study foreign country so I need everything I can get!

 
Excellent Overview

Excellent overview that is high yield and covers the key histological points as they relate to bone. Excellent refresher for MSK.
