Format: Paperback
What Can I say about this book, apart from that i've found it absoloutely essential for my recent torent of human histology 'spot tests'. The book is concise with plenty of annotated electron and light microscopy exhibits. The hand drawn pictures give a reference to what I am actually looking at. As the book is arranged in systems it is easy to intregrate with my intregrated anatomy and physiology, cell biology courses. I recommend this text-hands down!

Follows the histology part of the UCL medical course very closely. The photographs are clear and well labled. It allows easy revision.
The text alongside the photos is informative and explains well what is shown.

Histology is never amongst medical students favourite subjects, though this latest edition of Wheater's has really 'spiced-up' the subject. The histological images are countless, crystal clear and accompanied by chunks of punchy descriptive text. The drawn illustrations now appear in colour, increasing the visual appeal and user-friendliness of the book, and compliment the histological sections perfectly. The authors consistently indicate the interplay between the histology and the physiology and anatomy of the various systems, making this text an excellent accompaniment to systems-based teaching. What's more, you even get a CD-ROM to view all the images on your computer!

Histology was not one of my favourite subjects which is why I loved this book. It had all the information in it that I needed so I didn't have to spend any more time than absolutely necessary on histology!! Honestly, the pictures and explanations are great, the layout of the book means finding information is easy and learning it is quick!

This book is an excellent companion to any histological course. It has modern up-to-date pictures and they are labelled perfectly. The writing is refreshingly succinct and yet manages to impart a great deal of information. i would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the subject

I used this book for all pieces of physiology and histology coursework. It is an excellent revision guide, as everything is explained so succinctly - definitely worth using!

This book has its flaws, but they are few and are easily spotted by any half-awake medic. The way the book combines light and electron micrographs is useful when learning the subject for the first time, and becomes indispensable when trying to identify the wide variety of pink blobs that make up Histology.

I am a medical science student in UK and this book is really helpful for my histology sessions! Even though it's one edition older than the newest one, no difference can be seen in the content! It's just a different cover.. A must have book if you are a medic student
