Best to read this small book first.
 

Micscape Magazine and founder of this site wrote a book to help young first time users.

Pippa's Progress. The book above might help and the free suite of videos of Pippa showing how to use a microscope and study things available here at Mic-UK.


Microscopy As A Hobby In The 21st Century. A lot of books out there on starting out with microscopy as a hobby are now quite old, and in this brave new era, fail to address advantages offered by our new technologies. Our book, aimed at the person first starting out with a microscope (of any age) introduces modern techniques and methods whilst retaining the best from the past. Repeatedly a Number 1 best seller on Amazon, per cheaper through Brunel Microscope books in the UK.

 

Little Imp CDs free online courtesy of Steve Gill - 
The contents of 66 CDs formerly sold by Savona Books and meticulously compiled by Steve Gill are now free online and hosted here on Microscopy-UK. A wide selection of public domain books and microscope makers' catalogues are offered, many of which are hard to source elsewhere. Many thanks for Steve's generosity.
