Overview

Use a proven combination of learning principles and exercises to make learning medical terminology easier . Now in its 7th Edition, MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONS simplifies the process of memorizing complex medical terminology by focusing on the important word parts — the common prefixes, suffixes and root words — to provide a foundation for learning hundreds of medical terms. Organized by body systems, the chapters begin with an overview of the terminology related to the body's structures and functions, then proceed through diseases and disorders, and finally diagnostic procedures and treatments. This helps students master the necessary language to describe how the human body works, what goes wrong with it, and how we treat it. Every chapter engages learners with the See and Say pronunciation system, interactive exercises, real life medical scenarios and critical thinking exercises. An updated art program includes illustrations that reflect the latest terms and procedures, and multi-cultural /multi-generational photos that accurately portray today's medical world. Built-in multimedia is included with the text on the StudyWare CD-ROM. This resource is packed full of activities that engage student with games, quizzes, animations, and an audio glossary -ultimately helping students study , prepare for exams, and achieve success . Optional workbook and online courseware is also available.

I thought I was dotting my "I"(s) and crossing my "T"(s) by going into Barnes and Nobles and paying; and having them process my order. The first set of books took and extra 7 or 9 business days past the date I was given. By then School was about to start so I was getting nervous. So I called and the automated service said the book had arrive and was signed for by UPS 5 days ago!!! When a rep. got on the phone they did send me another book out but once again I had to wait for it. And on top of that, be that girl that started to get on other peoples nerves because I was looking over their shoulder to get info out of the book that I should have had weeks ago!
