8) MICROSCOPY – Practice Slides


Practice slides are EXTREMELY important because “light contrast microscopy” isn’t what you’d call EASY –  it’s even harder if you’ve never done it before. So when you have stained, crisp practice slides to play with, you can refine and hone your scope-adjustment-skills and get good at figuring out the scope.

Once you can focus a practice slide, you’re pretty much ready for the ‘real thing’.
