The textbook is not reader friendly as it is highly technical. My occasion for obtaining it is that machine transcription is a required course in my Word Processing Certificate Program. Nomenclature for lessons and documents is confusing; there was at least one grammatical error on the first test I took as well as an error in one of the transcription exercises. I have no confidence in the material and am thinking of dropping the course. Too,I purchased a used copy of the textbook which shipped without the CD packet without which testing is not permitted. I would have wanted to at least know I was getting the CD packet when I purchased the used book through Amazon.com.

I bought a used copy of this book and it came without the CD which I expected. The book is useless without the CD. But more important -- the book is useless because it was published in 2003. The information is HORRIBLY outdated for what today's transcriptionist needs to know. It was so useless I threw it away. Spend your money on a Gregg's Reference Manual and study it, & join a forum on the internet. That is, assuming you already are computer literate, know Word, have high speed internet, know how to to research, can type 60+ wpm, and are way above average with your English skills. But this book won't teach you any of that either.

Format: Paperback
I took medical transcription in college and then went on to become an in-house transcriptionist at a large local medical office. This book got me off to a great start in my class as well as in my career, and it provided many useful examples of situations faced in the course of a typical day of a transcriber. Sentence structure, commonly misuesd and misspelled words, as well as typical formats are outlined in a fast-paced but user friendly book. I can no longer work in transcription due to multiple back surgeries for scoliosis, but I referred to this book regularly (as did my more experienced colleagues)while I was working. This is a great starter book!
