    Great book,I recommend

    I am a student of Transcription I found the book to be very useful and very helpful allowing me to practice my transcription during my down time from school. The book allows you to focus on very hard medical terminology words and to study the foreign voices. Very good book. Practice makes perfect. Very good for a new transcriptionist.
