I've been struggling to become more fluent in Spanish for several years. It wasn't until I had a patient in nursing school who spoke nothing but Spanish that I knew I needed to try harder! I've fallen in love with this product! Although I'm not very far yet (thanks to still being in nursing school) the first chapter has already improved my pronunciation, as well as taught me basic commands that will be extremely helpful when working with Spanish-speaking patients! This book comes with three CDs that you can play in your car or home stereo along with a test book that allows you to prove what you've learned! I highly recommend everyone in the medical field to purchase this product!

Dynamic dialogue that is easy to follow and repeat. It does require some basic knowledge of the language. I listened to the CDs while driving to work. The text reinforces the listening component.

By way of disclosure: I received the book and some of the CDs when I enrolled in classes taught by the authors.
The book covers a wide range of material starting with very easy concepts and then rapidly advancing to more advanced grammar. That will prove to be quite challenging for students with no prior exposure to Spanish. However, since the book does not assume that the reader has a prior background in Spanish there is a fair amount of basic grammar information that an advanced learner will understandably want to ignore. These are problems inherent in the attempt to write a book that will be useful to both beginners and advanced students. In other words, the book isn't perfect, but that's OK. I think that virtually all students interested in medical Spanish will find the book useful. Also, the book is targeted at people who work in health care in the United States. It does not attempt to address all of the communication needs of somebody who is planning to go on mission trips or work alongside Spanish speaking doctors. Having a clear focus is a Good Thing.
Students with no background at all can benefit from this book and the CDs, but they will need additional resources. Ideally, the beginning student should take a class of some kind rather than trying to learn to speak a language without a teacher.
I think the CDs are useful for more advanced students since it is always good to engage multiple senses in language learning, but they are not nearly as important for someone who already speaks Spanish.
I have tried using several different books on medical Spanish to help myself and some of my employees learn, and this book is easily the best I have seen.

The mix of audio and the work book have been VERY helpful. The basics are intermixed with the specific vocabulary for the medical school. Very happy with the product.

Great book, easy to use. The CDs are OK--sometimes the words are garbled/slurred, and other times you can hear the people talking too close to the mic...you can hear the spit in their mouths! Otherwise, very helpful:)

I got the book and then the book with the CD set. I would highly recommend the CD book set. With the CDs you can hear how to say the parts of the body and learn how to pronounce the words. I'm LOVE THIS CD SET.

I have been looking for a medical Spanish program for a while and this is the best one I have found so far. The price is reasonable and it comes with an audio CD to go along with the book. The text has pertinent dialogue for being in the clinic.
I only gave it 4 stars because the CD does not cover every lesson or dialogue in the book and there is also no translation for some of the dialogue, though you can figure it out.
It helps to already have a back ground in Spanish before using this, although i don't think it's really necessary.
As with another reviewer, it took over 2 weeks to receive my copy.

It's very to the point and a great review, It is very useful and even in the first chapter I can see that it touches on not just the language itself, but the culture. I was very impressed at how through the book was and I highly recommend to all medical professionals.
