Some of these materials date back to 1973; nonetheless, most questions are relevant today.

There materials were created pre-Microsoft.  White-out and IBM Selectric typewriters were considered to be technological advances.

There are unavoidable duplicate questions among different documents.

Some questions relate to technologies that are not used today (e.g, membrane filtration).

Given their dates of origin, they do not address technologies in use today (e.g., LBP, imaging devices, HPV, etc.).

Nonetheless, good cytopreparation remains the foundation of good cytodiagnosis.
