This book is fantastic. I am currently using this as part of my terminology course. Its informative with the right balance of understanding and medical/technical terms.

It does cover all the different terms and gives extensive meanings. It is good, that I can flick through the pages before I purchase.

HASH(0x8fda99d8) out of 5 stars Not a Complete Reference Book 19 Sept. 2003
By L. Kentner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked this book partly due to the fact that it came with the complete medical dictionary on a CD. It would be great to leave the book at school and install the software on my home computer...medical books are heavy!!!
Unfortunately, most of the medical words that I've had to look up in my courses have not been in this reference book. I'm taking a medical secretarial course, so this book would be a major disappointment for anyone taking nursing or medical.

HASH(0x8fda9a2c) out of 5 stars comprehensive, encyclopedic 25 Aug. 2004
By D. Sirmans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This medical dictionary is comprehensive and very informative. Its style is encyclopedic, meaning that it not only defines terms, but also continues into detail. I would highly recommend this dictionary to lay persons and to persons in entry-level medical positions.

HASH(0x8fdb824c) out of 5 stars A Good Dictionary 15 May 2009
By Joy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read the reviews saying not all the important words were there but somehow I wanted to try myself. Unfortunatly that was true. I did not find many words there and I had to buy another one. However, If you find what you need in it, the definitions are excellent. (A general worker in Health care might find it useful, but professionals or students will need another one).

HASH(0x8fdb81f8) out of 5 stars Spend your money on something else 21 April 2009
By M. Hopkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a good technical resource than this is not your book. Much of what I needed was not in the book and there are no pronunciations for the terms. I would not recommend
