More About This Textbook

Overview

This textbook presents a quick and easy approach to learning medical terminology. The consistently formatted chapter and word tables focus on memorizing word parts and learning medical terminology from word building. Students are introduced to terminology related to structure and function, diseases and disorders, abbreviations, medical specialties, and health professions. A multitude of exercises including medical record, image labeling, spelling, and others are included to ensure mastery of the language. This updated and completely redesigned Second Edition features enhancements in the art program and chapter exercises, expanded content on pathologies and pharmacology, and new appendices on abbreviations, medical word parts, and error-prone abbreviations.

The all-new Student Resource suite includes a question bank with a variety of exercise types, games and puzzles, flashcards (including build-your-own), a glossary, animations, chapter quizzes, and final exam. A customized online course, compatible with WebCT and Blackboard, with chapter overviews, flash cards, interactive review exercises, and chapter quizzes is also available.
