This is the BEST medical dictionary I have used. I have been doing medical transcription for 8 years and this is the only dictionary I use now. In the beginning, I tried other dictionaries but this one was far superior to any of the others. I haven't even gotten around to using the CD that came with this dictionary because the book itself serves my needs. Many entries are cross referenced and a lot of entries offer clinical information, such as how the condition is diagnosed and how to treat it, which comes in handy when trying to decipher a medication or a lab test that goes with a certain condition. I highly recommend this medical dictionary and will always have one as long as I am transcribing.

This is a very helpful book in print form, but it is NOT indexed for kindle yet. A dictionary that is not indexed and searchable is useless on a kindle.

i am currently taking my prerequisites for nursing school and this dictionary is a lifesaver! it has tabs on the side to make it easier to find what you are looking for and even has a lot of pictures throughout.

This book is extremely useful for any one in the medical field; but also for those who are dealing with an unexpected illness. This book helps the average patient understand the illness and the medications that they are dealing with.

I actually felt a happy pang in my stomach when I received my very first Tabors!I work in a hospital and have referred to the desktop Tabors for years. Now to have my own, it is second only to the Bible in my home. God first always! The color photos of actual afflictions and the professional illustrations are total quality.

Just about anything you could ever need to lookup is neatly organized in this handy, space saving reference book.
As this is my 1st Taber's I really can't say how different/updated it actually is from previous versions, and I haven't delved too deeply into the online/smartphone app companions...
What I do know is that this is a MUST for Nsg. school - the extra weight in my book-bag everyday is worth the ability to cross-reference terms presented in our textbooks on the fly.
The BEST thing about Taber's is how helpful it is in clinicals. Don't understand what the Dr. just said about your patient's condition? Taber's is there to demystify.
I love how comprehensive it is and the ranges of terminology covered. I've also been able to find clarifications on "non-medical" terms I've come across in my studies.

I am currently a nursing student in my final year. I have seen a number of medical encyclopedias / dictionaries, and in my opinion, Taber's is by far the best I have used. It is loaded with useful illustrations, and never did this cyclopedia not contain the medical term I was looking for information on. Judge for youself, but I don't believe that you will find another medical dictionary / encyclopedia any better than Taber's, and most of them are not nearly as good.
