This dictionary has been by personal favourite for over 15 years. It is small portable , clear and concise. The descriptions and definitions are very good and it is easy to understand. Very good for GCSE, A-level and University students and a basic essential textbook. The other Oxford University textbooks on Medicine are also excellent.
Have had the dictionary for about 4 weeks now and it has been a godsend for using whilst on a Medical Audio Transcription course. Providing you have some knowledge of how a totally strange word is spelt, as it might not be spelt as it actually sounds, then this dictionaary is very useful.
I am plagued with numerous long term health issues with lots of technical names and tests which I often do not understand - this book is helping me to fight my way through everything and gradually start to understand what is happening to me!
All references are very simple and clear to understand.
Simple, basic, great size, good explanations, nice and cheap medical book. What's not to like? Brilliant medical book, i can only suggest for people to buy it. Used it on an offshore medic course! Perfect
