Great starter - but you'll soon find yourself wanting more.
on 4 October 2004
I bought this book when I first went to Medical school so that I could ensure I could understand the texts that I was reading before I went. It seemed like a good idea at the time - and during the basics of the medical course it was. However, I soon found myself wanting a more detailed dictionary. If you're considering buying this book, this is my advice for you. Consider: if you're serious about your medical course ignore these cheaper dictionaries and go for on eof the large ones such as Dorlands straight away. If, however you want easing into the course, or aren't sure whether it's for you, go for this one until you finally make your decision.
