I frequently hear people talking that they are not able to identify the slides microscopically, so they would remember the external morphology of the slide. This made me to think that, though the subject of Histology is so fascinating and colorful, why would one find it difficult to identify the slide. Through my analysis I could understand that there is no good book which depicts all variants of slides. The picture seen in one college slide might not resemble to the textbook image and the student is left to imagination. I have been in the prepared slide business and teaching for the past 10 years. So, I have made a book which would clear these gaps between students and textbooks. A student usually enters the department with the idea that he/she might not identify the slides or remember the histological features till the exams. For those kinds of students I decided to make the book interesting by using unconventional means. I tried to create resembling pictures, puzzles for all chapters and tried to use match the following kind of exercises, crosswords, self assessment material, MCQ’s etc. One more problem the student experiences is that he/she needs to carry oral histology manual, observation book, graph book separately for practical classes. So, I tried to club all these things in to one. There are no books which guide the students regarding stepwise diagram drawing. I tried to address the same. I added steps involved in tooth carving also. I hope that after reading this book one would be able to identify the slides microscopically and they would no more depend on the external morphology of the slide. I hope the faculty and students accept my first venture into book writing and encourage me.
