I would advise anyone interested in the medical field to aggressively pursue this material.Clear,concise and very compelling.The pictures are of great value,as,I am more of the visual type.Mastering the spelling is my next great challenge,as,I am interested in a medical transcriptionist career.My next book from her will be,"the Language of Medicine",which I have already encountered through a CRNFA relative.Very well written,as well.

I had to purchase this book for school, and I must say that I was very impressed on the detail and information that it had for the person/Individual.

Great references, very detailed and worth the money.

It is easy to understand and remember. Also there are many exercises in the book, however it is much better if it has Audio CDs.

My friend Hannah used this text for her class, and she really found it to be very useful. She reports, "I think that this book does a great job of giving all kinds of medical terms and the definitions, along with descriptions of diseases, symptoms, body parts, and systems. A couple things I found most helpful was all the definitions of all the medical terms, and how simply they phrased the definitions. It was not long and complicated to understand. Another thing I liked were the graphics and the pictures that showed what the diseases looked like. For example, when talking about bone structures the book gave great pictures referencing and the locations and the names of the bones. The book is very clearly organized. In the purple boxes were the diseases that went along with the chapters. The chapters were very well organized and explained everything in detail. One very important thing I found really helpful was how, in the beginning of the book, the pre-fixes and suffixes were given definitions and an example of how each one contributes meaning in a technical term. In the back of the book it also had all the prefixes and suffixes. With this dual reference,you could access it easily. I found this book really helpful to me in my course. It helped me get good grades by making studying easier and more effective! I would recommend this book to anyone studying medical terms and diseases."

I would recommend this book to anyone. I recently started graduate school and we had to study this beforehand. I found that it is very well organized and easy to navigate. I especially appreciated the cases and exercises/quizzes at the end of each chapter and thought they really helped me learn and solidify the information I had read in the chapter. It included real world examples, which I also found helpful, and has appendices that are easy to maneuver and are very helpful. This book gave me a strong base of medical knowledge that I have fallen back on many times in my classes. Great book!
