Being a medical transcription practictioner, supervisor and educator, I would like to encourage everyone who is serious about medical transcription as a career to invest in this manual. The AAMT is a trendsetter and an asset to any transcriptionist's library. User friendly and extremely informative for both the student and experienced. It is even helpful when educating the physician, helps when you have it in print!!

Since I am new at transcription, I needed a great reference book to be at my side. This book is great because its sections are in alphabetical order - if you need to find out the correct spelling for "mid portion" you simply turn to the "M" section, and there is "mid" and the different and correct uses for the word. I have used this book frequently and I haven't seen a book for transcription that has been this useful.

As far as I am aware, there is no alternative to the AAMT Book of Style of Medical Transcription. Fortunately, just about everything you could want on the subject is included in this latest edition, the second version and last word on the subject. It is the standard to which one's transcribed reports will be held. Unfortunately, the latest edition is for some reason not available on Amazon; go to [...] and search their store to find the 2nd edition of the Book of Style, published in 2002. It's remarkably well updated and improved.
To be a transcriptionist one must not simply type the words being dictated. One must format the report so that it is readable and makes sense, preferably very clearly at a glance. The thousands of tips and style points within these covers are necessary to attain that goal. While I may not agree 100% with each of the individual style recommendations made in this book, my few reservations are overwhelmingly outnumbered by the many suggestions that solve problems in my everyday work and help me create the best work I possibly can. The price is not cheap, but no one who seriously hopes to make it in this field can be without this publication.

This book is an excellent reference book for the new and experienced transcriptionist. It is easy to find information and gives all the rules necessary to be an experienced and knowledgeable transcriptionist. I have used this book since 1995 and have found it to be extremely helpful in several areas of transcription.

I am currently working through training as a medical transcriptionist. I occasionally have errors in completed reports which almost always are corrected after reference to this book.

With constantly altered 'rules' on formatting, this book allows for the easiest 'final proof' of formatting that I have come across. I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about investing into a career as a medical transcriptionist. This reference cannot be replaced!

This book is an absolute must have. I don't think I have run across a question in my transcription that the BOS wasn't able to answer. I'm new to the field and this book is ALWAYS by my side. :) It is definitely money well spent.

This book is a required text for my Medical Transcription 1 class. I was a bit surprised at the format of this book at first. But this is definitely a book I plan to keep once I start my internship/job in medical transcription. This book is incredibly easy to use and covers a ton of things that you need to know for medical transcription. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a beginning medical transcriptionist.
