I love just browsing through this dictionery. Very informative with lots of good pictures and descriptions on nearly everything! So happy I bought it however I was disappointed to see that about 20 pages had been folded over in the book tho. It should be in perfect condition considering the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 to the 10th Power In Stars 11 April 2004
By PaganDeva2000 - Published on
They should really raise the star point system here, because anything by Mosby is worth the buy. I have the Mosby's Medical Dictionary for Nursing and Allied Health Professionals, and when I saw this book in the store, I was trying to figure out the difference, because of the color. This one offers just as many details as my previous book. This is important, because it is an easy read, and it is necessary for each household to have, for children to study off of, to the housewife that just wants to be informed. Mosby has been following me through nursing school, and anything they sell as a study aide will have a place in my home.

I am currently in nursing school and I ordered this book after I had looked at a classmate's. I already had "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary" and a "Merck Manual" and was happy with those until I saw my classmate's "Mosby's Medical Dictionary". The Mosby's is as good as the "Taber's" but not as "technical". What makes it better than the others is that it is great for students because it's definitions are more simply stated but still gives the same information. It also has A LOT MORE illustrations than other medical dictionaries. It also has MANY extras like a "Color Atlas of Human Anatomy"(was VERY useful in Anatomy) and also an Online Resource Center that includes Assessment Guides, Health Promotion, Infection Control, Common Drug Interaction, etc.

I absolutely love my "Mosby's" and wouldn't trade it for any other medical dictionary!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Lucky than Smart 30 Aug 2007
By HolisticOne - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered Tabers Cyclopedic guide first, but it arrived with some pages damaged in binding. And it seemed compressed in size and with its explanations. So I sent it back (thank you damage) and switched to Mosby's. Hooray! Bigger & better & more thorough with LOTS of pictures. The words searched for are printed in blue, with the definitions in black, making it easy to scan for your subject. Lucky me.

5.0 out of 5 stars This dictionary makes looking up words fun. 23 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
I bought Mosby's because it's easy to read and look up medical terms. I'm learning the language and this book is formatted for easy readability. The numerous illustrations are all in color which I found informative. It's definitely a user-friendly dictionary.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Help 9 Mar 2006
By Starting Over - Published on
After working in factories all my life and recently losing my job due to outsourcing I felt I needed a career change. I enrolled in the medical terminology class in my area and ordered the Mosby's Medical Dictionary. My initial reason for choosing Mosby's was the price. I was extremely happy with the purchase I made once I received the book and started looking through it. I love that it is loaded with color photographs and illustrations. The only thing I wish this dictionary had was thumb index, but I can live without it.
