I own this book and found it to be a fantstic study aid, it is very easy to follow. The exercises are great, they allow you to get used to how the prefix-suffix-combining forms come together to make the word. Plus you have the self assessment exercises to check on your progress. I used it a lot in the run up to my AMSPAR Medical Reception exams, and will continue to use for my AMSPAR Medical Secretary course. It is also very well illustrated and split into units for each body system.

I bought this book while doing an Access to Nursing course. The book tied into the class work we were doing in medical terminology. An excellent book to help you come to grips with all the suffixes and prefixes and just plain medical terminology. Highly recommended.

A great book for the AMSPAR Advanced Med. Sec.Course (medical terminology section)- I found it really useful and it has clear exercises and self tests along with lists of prefixes and suffixes for each body system.Excellent index and list of abbreviations.
If you like learning systematically and methodically this is the one for you.

We are using this book on my AMSPAR Medical Terminology (level 3) course and it really is an easy to follow book. Things are organised into a sensible order for easy learning and the book is well laid out and very informative. My only 'complaint' is that there is not really sufficient space to write answers to the Word exercises - you have to learn to write a bit smaller!!!
Would thoroughly recommend this book!

Fabulous book - well set out and easy to follow. There are quizzes throughout to test your learning. Knowing the roots of medical words is so helpful in health care. I wish I'd known about this book when I started out!
