Overview

With Exploring Medical Language, 10th Edition, you can now master medical terms on your terms! At the heart of this one-of-a-kind learning package is an innovative worktext, which enables you to gradually acquire an understanding of medical terminology by first learning word parts and then learning how to combine the parts into full medical terms that make sense. Perhaps even better is the wide range of engaging online learning tools - tools like interactive games, puzzles, application activities, and on-the-go auditory reviews - that come with the worktext to help reinforce your learning and help you understand how the terms are used in the professional world. In all, this is the only resource on the market that incorporates all the proven methods for mastering medical terminology that work best for today’s learners.


• Systematic presentation of medical terminology

Comprehensive coverage of words that are built from word parts and other important terms creates a distinction between terms built from word parts and those not easily recognized as built from word parts and provides thorough coverage of both.
Over 400 flashcards enable readers to review word parts when and where they want.
Margin boxes detail important information such as medical terminology facts and tips, historical information, weblinks, and complementary and alternative medicine terms.
Simulations of electronic health records familiarize readers with the growing use of EHRs in healthcare settings.
AudioTerms study companion can be easily downloaded to portable media players and includes over 3,000 terms, each of which is pronounced and defined.
Integrated online learning tools feature interactive games and activities, A+P boosters, career videos, and more that cater to the way today’s learners master medical terminology.


• NEW! Case studies

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.

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!
