App Review: Study and Learn Histology and Microbiology with USMLE-Rx Flashcards App!

By: Ravish Amin

Apps are a cool way to review for microbiology and histology. Computer-assisted learning materials for microbiology allow for the addition of illustrations, self-assessment questions, and greater interactivity for subjects which require visual theory and practical knowledge.

Need to constantly review images for histology or most common organisms using pictures? Try the Histology and Microbiology Slides and Images App which has flashcards of the most common cells types, organisms, as well as details about histology and microbiology theory.

This app has some unique highlights such as a “Faves Deck” study feature that allows you to single out only the cards that really give you trouble! Mastered topics can be added to your “Ignore List.” Shuffle, search, and flip features make this a truly interactive app. To help you really ace your class and board exams, get the USMLE-Rx Step 1 Flash Cards App and integrate FIRST AID microbiology question and answer slides to quiz yourself using the most high-yield content for board exams.

The app is similar to having a virtual textbook with you. Correlating structure with function, knowing the stains, and developing algorithms is necessary.
