And once you've mastered these building blocks and understand the simple logic behind how they are combined to form medical terms, the job of learning the hundreds of words you'll need on the job is a piece of cake! Quick Medical Terminology, 3rd Edition is specially programmed to allow you to work at your own pace with prerequisites, objectives, and tests to check your progress.
