The workbook is loaded with information along with all the Medical Terminology you need. The book is suggested as a review for P.A. school, just to give you an idea of the information involved. Because the book is also a workbook, it 'makes' you learn the material by repetition and reviewing. The book will take the word 'Gynecology', tell you Gynec- means Female,Woman and -Logy meaning the study of and then will elaborate on the profession, specialists, tests involved etc. If you want a workbook that is succinct, then go with 'Medical Terminology: A Short Course', which is recommended below. Good luck with your studies.
