    alot of people report they had histology questions on the actual tests. just wondering if they just give you slides to identify or there's more varieties. there is alot of information that can fall into the category of histology, just wonder the depth of the questions. It's really not a big deal if they just throw in a few slides, but i just kinda worry the unspecified scope of this topic. I guess we'll get more light on this as more people take the test starting may.

    histology is anything under the category of 'microscopic anatomy' of which you will probably see function of wbc types or other phagocytic cells. Don't let the word HISTOLOGY freak you out, its no big deal

    it's not that big of a deal. they give you the slide of something you should be familiar with and are asked a question that you can relate to the histological slide. not the easiest question on the bio section, but far from the hardest.

    best of luck, jb!:)

    histology on the dat what you talkig about??? i don't think it would be real histology.. just a cell with its organelles or something -- histology to me is more than just a cell.. but rather what type of cell what it does and stuff like that..

    JB can you give us a hint on where to study for this? I never had histology nor am I a science major and I have never seen anything similar to what you describe in kaplan... Im just asking because I might have to re-take and I want to make sure I do good.

    this is not a joke. if you follow sdn carefully, you'll see several people mention they had histology slides, which, of course, nobody was expecting. plus it's not even dat season yet , and we'll see how everybody else goes

    Granted, things may have changed since I took it last June, but to my knowledge the only histology that is on the DAT (if you can even call it that) is stuff regarding what tissue layer something is derived from (i.e. endoderm, mesoderm, ectoderm).

    sorry i cant go into any more depth than that since it would be a violation of the ADA policy. however, look over major processes including major organs... think heart, kidney, etc.. if you understand how this stuff works and are familiar with a simple diagram of each then you should be cash$$$ :thumbup:

    Histology is the study of tissues, I would say study mesoderm, endoderm ectoderm etc.
