Medical Terminology The way that this material is presented directs you to methodically and painlessly memorize and understand amazing amounts of medical terminolgy, with excellent results. I love this book!
Needed this book for school. At my college it was 120 and i got it for cheaper here, free shopping since im a member and it came in on time. Would continue shopping here
I ordered this book for rental and received very damaged flashcards that the book came with. I didn't however receive a book. I unfortunately had to order this book from another website and had to pay a fortune on next day shipping because I need this book for a class. I also rented other books from barnes and noble for this semester and one of those books happened to be damaged as well. I definitely will no longer being doing business here. Very disappointed.
Excellent condition, received a day late, but cheap price!
I have look at other Medical Terminology books and I have found this book to be the best. I like the layout of the book. I like how the exercises are presented.
We are using this book for a Medical Terminolgy class. The exercises are a lot of work but they've proven to be very helpful for preparing for tests and working in clinical situations. You will learn from the repetition!
I have been an instructor in Medical terminology for the past four years and have worked with many different text. I find that Exploring the Medical Language fits the needs to the students the best. It is an excellent resourse and I would recommend it to anyone learning or teaching the Medical language
