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.

I purchased this book to review some Medical Terminology prior to the start of my PA program. This book has plenty of exercises to practice, and the chapters cover a lot of different subjects with useful information you may or may not already know. A CD comes with the book that has exercises similar to those in the text, but less repetitive. Even though I already know a lot of this from my prior education, it is a great review or intro for those that are new to the subject. I highly recommend this book to any Pre-PA students, pre-med, or pre-health students.

I am a 72-year-old woman with absolutely no medical background whatsoever, recently diagnosed with an immune deficiency. The immunologist provided me, after each consultation, with a sheaf of notes from the session and with blood test results. I could read not one single bit of these reports with understanding. So I hit the computer. Wikipedia was a little helpful, but not nearly graphic enough. Then I ordered from Amazon a third-grade book on blood and a junior high text on the immune system, both of which posed more questions than answers. Finally I ordered the Chabner book, eighth edition, and it is a revelation!

A thousand pages, big type, wide margins, LOTS of every kind of photo, picture and diagram imaginable -- my kind of learning! To my amazement, I can understand and remember every single word I've read so far. The author has a rare gift for simplifying and illustrating what might be really technical and (for me) obscure. As a former classroom teacher myself, I salute the author and thank her for her brilliant clarity. I envy her students. A most illuminating and enjoyable book, I have begun studying and learning the whole contents -- just for the pleasure of it.

"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!
