Review

"During my 15+ years of teaching, I have always encouraged my students toincorporate flash cards with their learning process. Many students have their handsfull juggling school, work and home life. The fact that these flash cards are alreadymade is a big time saver for many students."Mary Nichols, Heald College

"I think it's the best book on the market." "I use the CD-ROM for extra credit. I highly recommend its use. Students that use it usually score higher on exams. I find that students use in during downtimes and play the games and practice using exams. These are very useful!"David Stump-Fought, Heald College

More About the Author

I have been a professional author for many years and it is an occupation that I thoroughly enjoy. Being one of the authors of the textbook "Medical Terminology for Health Professions" is a very special undertaking for me. By working together, and with the support of our publisher, Carol and I have established a creative synergy that has enabled us to achieve our two main goals for this book.
Our primary goal is to enable students to learn medical terms as easy and effectively as possible. We do this through organizing the text by body systems, emphasizing word parts, and generously using full color illustrations. Additional aids, that accommodate varied learning styles, are included in the StudyWARE CD. Here, through a variety of formats, and games, learning fun becomes more fun.
Our second goal, which is of equal importance, is to assist instructors by providing them with quality learning aids. (1) "The Instructors Manual" includes classroom activities, such as "medical mysteries," quizzes, and tips for teachers. (2) Power Points presentations reinforce terms and can be used to correct textbook exercises in class. (3) Animations clarify content and add interest. (4) The Computerized Test Bank speeds creation by the instructor of quality tests. (5) An audio CD is a valuable aid to teach students correct pronunciations of complex terms.
We welcome suggestions from students and teachers as to additional ways in which the book came be made even more user friendly.

Medical terminology is like a foreign language, this book is easy to understand and learn on your own. I am currently taking online course with this as a text along the side, doing pretty well so far.

1. To purchase this book is ridiculously expensive for a bunch of terms you can google. These are what I consider "glossary words." Words that just require a definition, and don't require much background info. I will admit that some of the descriptions are helpful.
2. I'm very grateful that Amazon gives a renting option.
3. This book (for my online class) is basically useless for me. If you want just the pure definitions in an online flashcard format, google: "quizlet Medical Terminology Ehrlich." They are flashcards for you to study, and if you find the right ones, some users literally type out EVERY term for you. For example, quizlet.com/yuwenmchen
Though, I must emphasize that this was the case for my specific class. Some classes depend on this book heavily; it depends on your course.

The book is straight to the point and manages to keep it interesting. Plenty of diagrams, and very well formatted. There's a cd rom where you can have access to games to study in areas where you learn best, from search puzzles, jeopardy, or spelling words out to definitions.

I still enjoy looking at the book to re-look up something after taking the class and am very thankful this is the book my teacher fought for. I can't imagination a better book for this subject.
