[Histonet] Need Some Help

When I interviewed for my first job out of histo school, I was sat at a
microtome and had to cut sections. Seems like a good test to me!!! I've
done it to others, especially if they are new in the field or registry
eligible. Since ASCP/BOR has seen fit to remove the practical this is
the next best way.

  I have to agree with Patsy...although, just because a person has passd
the exam and becomes certified (lots of book smart people out there),
doesn't mean they are good (hands on application) at what they do....I
guess it would have to be up to your client as to whether or not they
prefer that the tech is certified or not....they might only care that
the tech can do the job and do it well....good luck
