    Never Received the Book

    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

    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!
