The author does an excellent job providing useful exercises and applications to build your understanding of medical terminology. She offers plenty of repetitive opportunities to cement the new vocabulary in your mind.
Not only is the book great for a college class, it is a great book for anyone who just want to learn medical terminology. I loved it!
BAD: The CD-Rom contains a ridiculous amount of errors. The field of medicine requires accuracy, no matter what your position or career is in it, including authors and publishers of medical books. If you pay attention to the book and consider the CD-Rom to be purely for your review and enjoyment then you'll likely be able to turn a blind eye to the errors, but if you're relying on the CD-Rom to give accurate information, such as definitions (which is where most of the errors are), then you'll be sorely disappointed with it. Here are 3 examples from the 4th chapter definitions on the CD-Rom:
1. Hyperglycemia: Condition of excessive or high blood pressure; diabetes mellitus. [Hyperglycemia is excessive sugar in the bloodstream, not excessive blood pressure.]
2. Hypoglycemia: High levels of sugar in the bloodstream; diabetes mellitus. [Hypo- means below or less than, not high or greater than.]
3. Diameter: Measurement between opposite for example, blood vessel or intestine) points on the periphery of a circular body part (for example, blood vessel or intestine). [Yup, that's for real.]
I'd rate the book 5 stars but the CD-Rom 1 star.
