I was required to purchase this book and learn it for my Physician Assistant Masters Program and I love it...

It has detailed explanations of words and examples- plenty of pictures to match and many many exercises for practice. One of the Cds is a practice CD with entertaining games which make studying terminology fun as well as informative. I definitely think this is an excellent buy if you want to learn medical terminology with speed and ease. At the end of each chapter is a pronunciation guide (as well as a separate accompaning CD) which i find extremely useful. It is well organized and contains some physiology as well which just gets me even more prepared for the classes to come. Easy to use and understan even if you have never learned anatomy or physiology.

This is the best medical terminology text available. I have the seventh edition, which was the required text for a college medical terminology class that I took. I only wish Ms. Chabner would have written the text for the A&P class taken concurrently with the terminology class! Her writing is clear and informative. The book is laid out in a way that makes learning accessible and enjoyable. I have looked at quite a few medical terminology text books and have yet to find one that compares to The Language of Medicine. I can't say enough good things about this book!

I purchased Language of Medicine. This book is great for those entering the Medical field. The pictures included are high in detail and very explanatory. Also included is a CD with more information and Medical games. The price was right as well. I've spoken to other students in my class who purchased this same book from the school's bookstore. Their complaint was that they paid $25.00 more than what I paid. I'd recommend this book to anyone studying medicine.

This is the best studying book I have ever used. I am the type of person that wants to see what, a lesson is talking about. The drawings and illustrations are wonderful.Not only can you write in this book, it also has tapes to help you learn.I have learned more from this one book, it helps me understand and be able to recall what I have read.Wow I never knew there was so much going on in our body's, or how each system worked. I would recommend this book to every one, the terminology lessons make breaking down medical terms real easy, I like the way it goes into great detail explaining diseases, radiology , oncology ,and how our organs work.

i was asked to purchase this book for a class, and am impressed with the quality of the exercises contained within it. the only issue i have is that a few random combining forms or prefixes and suffixes having no definition to be found in the book at all... i've had to use the internet to look up what some of them mean. the enclosed cd-rom is also a great tool.

"the language of medicene" is a very well written text with great pictures. illustrations are shown in extreme clarity with very well written explenations- no guess work as to exactly what you are looking at and nothing shown that you don't need. everything is explained in highly understandable terms. you don't really need an expanded knowledge in anatomy and physiology to understand this text. i believe that anyone with a general high school biology knowledge would do just fine. everything is explained clearly in laymans terms. i have had a few texts similar to this in the past and this one by far was much easier to understand. i highly suggest this text over many other terminology books. if you can get a copy that comes with a cd it is actually pretty cool. spelling bee vocabulary and terminology, graphical matching and terminology matching are just a few examples of studying guides that the cd has to offer. there are games like "million dollar pyramid", "wheel of terminology" and more in the "arcade" section. there really are more study aids on the cd than i can mention. if you get a copy definatly don't pass up the cd!

Format: Paperback
I actually have recently purchased this textbook/ CD-ROM combo from my college bookstore for a class I am taking and I find the book to be fantastic. It is just as all these many, many others have reported it to be: A SOLID 5-STARS! However, I could not possibly be more disappointed with the CD. All the PCs, laptops, a tablet pc, and even one iMac where I am far, far exceed the minimum system requirements to run this software, but it is nowhere near being in the same league as the textbook/ workbook it supposedly supplements. It is so poorly constructed that some of (many of) the features are practically incomprehensible. My very American, English-speaking, raised on computers, extremely pc-literate (but not always the most politically correct or polite!) son took one look at the page on my screen and said, "It looks like some Russian-speaking translator threw some stuff together at the last minute and ripped all of you off." My college-loving son is currently working toward his third degree at the same school I am attending and has quite a bit of experience with textbooks which include a CD that is supposed to make the set worth twice the price of the book alone (but the book is never available for purchase new without the CD.)

Buy this great book, even if you are stuck paying a lot for the inclusion of its accompanying CD-ROM. The book is awesome & I hope as my course goes forward, I will continue to be so impressed and will easily learn everything it has to offer. I am enjoying spending time in these beautiful pages so much in fact, that I would not even mind too terribly if it did not come so clearly & easily. This edition is, after all, Ms. Chabner's eighth go at it.
