When a pathologist reviews slides he is considering whether or not a slide 
is diagnositic.  The ASCP is looking for the best slide possible.  Many 
pathologists that review slides do not look at them with the ASCP criteria 
in front of them, but scan the slide to look at the overall picture.  The 
pathologist may not be aware that epithelium must cover one entire 
surface, or that the minimum size requirements.  When I review slides with 
my students we go over the entire slide looking for any problems.   Each 
applicant receives a complete list of the grading criteria that the ASCP 
will be using.
