Overview

Since the first edition of Medical Terminology: A Living Language was published it has been noted for its “clean” and logical format that promotes a seemless learning experience. The Fourth Edition provides users with a consistent and logical system to help them build their understanding of medical terminology as it relates to the human body. This book maintains a real-world focus that relates medical terminology to various health professions, thereby capturing the users interest and providing information about potential future health careers. This information is reinforced with some key new features such as : an all-new art program carefully crafted by a medically trained illustrator; the System At A Glance chapter-opening feature which provides a quick reference for each topic being discussed in terms of its function, organs, combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes; the pharmacology tables which have been expanded to include commonly used generic and brand names; and much more.

    Medical Terminology

    I found this book to be laid out a lot better than a previous Medical Terminology book that I have used for school. It is well organized and very useful. The disc that comes with the book is a great resource to study from.

    Medical Terminology

    This book is very informative, and concise. The photographs were colorful and I was able to view the anatomy clearly. The DVD is a great teaching tool!

    Excellent breakdown of Medical Terminology!

    This was a very good book for anyone learning or needing to brush up on their medical terminology. It gives very good brief descriptions of body systems in each unit. You really understand the meaning of the words after using this book. It is much easier than trying to remember the whole word and definition. Excellent for anyone taking a physical science course or preparing to become a nursing student. It pays to learn this information.

    Excellent,practice,review for laymen

    This product was used as a primary textbook in Med Termnology (accelerated-6 week)) entry level short term certificate class at a community college. I presume that this text was chosen because of its ability to be understandable for non-medical people,medical customer serice related people, older people who are 2nd career transition people. I have not used this text on-line. I plan to keep this text as a reference book for coming medical billing clases.
