Product Description

Review

, T.W. -- The chapters are easy to read and understand. Medical terminology is broken down and easily applied to the units covered for practical nursing students. , Roberta L. Pohlman, PhD -- There are so many wonderful activities presented to the student, that he/she should have no problem scoring well on a quiz, if all the activities are completed. These types of activites are also a good way for a student to know his/her weaknesses in the chapter. The crossword puzzles are usually fun for everyone, but I really liked the activity on pronunciation. What a novel idea to help students learn the terms., , Roberta L. Pohlman, PhD -- The new text is colorful and "chock-full" of learning activities for the student. I will continue using this text as it is one of the best books available for a 10-15 week course.,

This book leads you by the hand through the often confusing world of medical language in a pleasant, absorbing step-by-step way. Colour-coded boxes, numerous full-colour graphics, quizzes and tasks ensure that the journey is never dull and boring.

This Medical Terminology is excellent for Pre-med students and makes the subject easy and interesting. The tests and quizzes are good consolidation and the layout of the course is very comprehensive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some useful information, lots of errors 26 Dec. 2007
By Anna Manchester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While this book covers the basics of terminology and is a decent quick review of anatomy, etc., the number of errors in it make it rather difficult to use. The answer keys in the appendix for end of chapter reviews and quizzes have major errors in them, as do several of the figures.(For example, in chapters 8 and 9, the answer keys to multiple choice questions list letters that are not even options.) There must be a better publication out there to learn med terminology. Why wasn't this reprint edited???!! The CD that comes with the book is helpful.

Love this book! I'm a 1st year student taking this course online. Info is specific and to the point; well written without being "wordy". I highly recommend it.

A must to read if you are going on to professional (medical) school. Helped when it came time to anatomy/histo to know prefixes to figure out what was going on

4.0 out of 5 stars Needed for a course 17 Mar. 2013
By Florence Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a book that was required for a course in nursing school. I bought it new for a much better price than what the school was offering. This product is helping me understand why certain conditions are named accordingly.

Came in good condition. I already work in the medical field so I knew a good portion but was able to learn much more.
