Ballieres nurses dictionary is a fountain of knowledge. Small enough to carry round with you but still has an abundance of knowledge. It is easy to follow and is an essential aid for student nurses everywhere. This dictionary also tells you how to pronounce those hard to say medical words. It comes complete with appendices and a useful section with websites to visit to help you with your studies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best nurse's dictionary 25 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I used this dictionary years ago when I first started nursing and have yet to find any other that comes close. It is clearly set out with everything you would expect from a dictionary aimed at a specific group - good definitions, tables, diagrams and other information. A dictionary that I will be recommending to those students in my health studies group who go on to nurse training.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 30 Nov 2006
Format:Paperback
I am a Paramedic & find this to be an invaluable reference that is small enough to be carried around. It explains things clearly & simply, so would also be useful for the layperson.

5.0 out of 5 stars A god send! 2 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this because I am doing a reflexology course and found that some words in my anatomy and physiology books just dont make sense! This is an absolute god send, it explains words in laymans terms. I dont know what I would have done without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even us scientists need help! 11 July 2004
Format:Paperback
As a Biomedical scientist working in a medical laboratory, you will often find yourself coming across terms that are either new to you or which you know but do not fully understand. A copy of Baillierie's Nurses' Dictionary was purchased for me at Christmas and I can trully say that it has been the most useful present, which I have received. There are still some terms missing, which would come in useful but I'm sure will be added in future editions, but for the size of book has an amazing amount of content with the addition of some useful appendices. Recommended for nurses and anyone who needs to come to terms with medical terminology (including scientists).

3.0 out of 5 stars A very basic dictionary, but value for money 13 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book to assist me during my nurse training, and initially found it very useful. However I am now realising its limitations, and frequently have to use other sources to get information and terms not listed inn the dictionary. For someone starting out in nursing or hospital work it is a useful guide, it is also small and has a tough cover so it would survive well in bags or large pockets unlike many nursing and medical dictionaries. It is very cheap and value for money, but I feel that most experienced students and practitioners would have little to gain from it.
