As much as it is a handy medical dictionary,I do not recommended it for medical students. It is very general and for someone in med school, it is not recommended for AP, Medical Biochemistry, disease or syndrome info, and drug info. The "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary" or "Stedman's" is the recommended medical dictionary.

For the layman, Merriam-Webster Medical Desk Dictionary is definitely recommended. :-)

Kindle Edition Review:
Very useful book, I am sure... It downloaded beautifully to my Kindle but did not load on my computer that runs on Windows 8. I called tech support and they are aware of the problem with downloading dictionaries. I bought this with the with the intentions of being able to search from my computer for homework so I am not too happy about it. I would have just bought the paperback if I had known. Reviews led me to believe that I could download it to my computer and somehow use the words in it to add to my computer's dictionary. Any of you who have taken any A&P classes know what I am talking about... You type a word and see it underlined and triple check the spelling before you continue. It gets old really quick. Anyways, I got a good deal on this product so I didn't return it. It has some good stuff for beginning college students going into the medical field. A dictionary is just something you don't want to flip through the pages and the Kindle's search is a little slow. Buy the paperback, it will probably be a little less aggravating to deal with.

Description of Kindle edition of this medical dictionary stated that this book could be designated the default dictionary, to be used for looking up words in other Kindle books. However, I could not set this dictionary to be the default on Kindle for PC. The "Dictionary" selection under "Options" did not offer that selection after this book was downloaded to my Kindle for PC. Did not see any warning that this book might not be installable as the default dictionary on Kindle for PC. Returned for credit.

I have three devices running on Windows 8 with Kindle installed and I had difficulty downloading it and then it wouldn't open on two devices and wouldn't even download on the third. And I couldn't get it to work on the cloud, either. It works fine on my IPad, but that's not the device I use for school. How do I get it off my cloud and get my money back?

Querying this dictionary functions too well, I mean as soon as you ask a simple thing like 'kidney' you receive so many answers with not enough information to find out which of the answers contains the information you are looking for. With some trial and error you can locate the wanted information but still that takes too much time.
