 Amber, it's a tough job since you have to be ready for anything. When I
did it back in the late '80's we had a study group of 4 people and we
met once a week and just went through all of Sheehan (Carson's book was
not out yet) outling it and learning essentially everything in it. We
made charts of all the fixatives, variations on all the stains, reasons
for using each, result, etc. We went through all the NSH study guides
several times. It took about a long time. It helped a lot that I worked
in a lab that did almost everything in the book - even EM - so we could
try things out first hand. We spent about a year preparing for the HT
first and then two years later took the HTL. All of us passed. I felt it
was equivilent to a masters degree program.

Does anyone know what the best way to study/pass the HTL is?  I've seen
all kinds of online classes and work shops for the HT, but nothing for
the HTL.
