In Class--It's a Lifesaver

I bought this book to help me with my medical transcription class and it was an invaluable source. I'm a fairly decent speller, but this book really picked up where my ability ends.

Taber's 21st Anniversary Edition Lacking in Quality

I purchased this medical dictionary having had one years ago. As it was an anniversary edition, perhaps I expected more. There are several pages with small creases not visible at the time of purchase due to packaging. Fortunately, the printed content is not affected....
I purchased this medical dictionary having had one years ago. As it was an anniversary edition, perhaps I expected more. There are several pages with small creases not visible at the time of purchase due to packaging. Fortunately, the printed content is not affected. As for the CD included, it amounts to a free one year access to the web site. If you're an established medical professional this may serve you. I'm a mere student, and didn't find it so very useful. I almost returned the purchase, but needed the dictionary so I kept it. It serves its purpose, but I wouldn't get this edition just because it's an anniversary edition.
