Pseudostatified columnar = ciliated usually w/ goblet cells present
Transitional epithelium = May have a slight oval shape depending on slide
Cuboidal epithelium = duh...looks like a cube, has round nuclei
Stratified squamous epithelium = found in epidermal layers of skin
Simple columnar epithelium = Nuclei are oriented in a defined line, whereas pseudostratified are all over the place.
The only way you lean histology and learn it well is to spend extra time in the lab with the microscope. Most schools
have open lab hours where you can study your lab material in the presence of a lab tech, find them out and spend as many hours as you have to in order to learn those things. It all pays off in the end. Good luck.
