A very basic dictionary, but value for money
on 13 January 2003
I purchased this book to assist me during my nurse training, and initially found it very useful. However I am now realising its limitations, and frequently have to use other sources to get information and terms not listed inn the dictionary. For someone starting out in nursing or hospital work it is a useful guide, it is also small and has a tough cover so it would survive well in bags or large pockets unlike many nursing and medical dictionaries. It is very cheap and value for money, but I feel that most experienced students and practitioners would have little to gain from it.
