The best advice for histo i can give, other than what has already been said, is concerning practicals using 'scopes instead of projection. Look at the slide grossly-- take it out of the microscope and look at it, if possible. If you learn to recognize the tissue section by looking at it grossly, it can narrow down dramatically the options you have for answers. Especially if you get to look through the exact bank of slides that will be used on your exam.
