    Highly Recommend.

    Really easy to use and understand. A great book for people with no prior knowledge of the topic.

    EXCELLENT book

    I will be starting nursing school in the Fall and I needed to prepare myself by becoming familiar with medical terminology. I thought I was going to be overwhelmed with a bunch of words and definitions. I was completely wrong! This book takes a different approach on learning medical terms, which made it SO EXTREMELY easy to remember! I was amazed at how quickly I learned the words and their meanings. This is definitely a MUST have book for any student entering in the medical field.
