Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This self-study programmed textbook for learning medical terminology presents a series of questions or statements and a column containing the answers. It is arranged by body systems and medical/surgical specialty areas.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a learner-oriented, self-study, programmed text to teach medical terminology. The author of this second edition is a former medical assistant program director of a technical college in Georgia who has also published another book Medical Terminology with Human Anatomy, 4th edition (Prentice Hall Health, 1999).
Audience: The audience would include anyone interested in learning medical terminology. The book is described as a self-instructional program. However, it appears the book could be used in conjunction with a classroom course. The book could be used as an entry-level course as part of a formal program for medical assisting, medical transcription or other allied health disciplines.
Features: The first two chapters present the foundation of medical terminology and organization of the body. The subsequent 13 chapters address a specific body system or medical/surgical specialty area. Each chapter includes objectives, primary word elements, full-color illustrations, and essential terminology with pronunciation key. Within each chapter pertinent diseases, drugs, and abbreviations are presented. New to this edition in each chapter is "In the Spotlight" that presents a current finding in medicine that relates to the subject of the unit. Case studies and exercises are included. An interactive student CD-ROM is packaged with every book. An instructor's manual and test bank as well as PowerPoint slides and audio CD are available.
Assessment: The book contains all the essential features of a solid medical terminology textbook that can be used as a self-study tool. A variety of exercises are provided to help the student practice the terminology. The appendixes contain two nice glossaries of word elements and abbreviations. A very nice feature to complement the book is a free integrated website — www.prenhall.com/rice — that includes study guide questions and immediate tabulation of a quiz available. The book is a well organized, reasonably priced medical terminology text.
From The Critics
The former medical assistant program director at a technical college in Rome, Georgia, provides programmed units arranged by body systems and medical/surgical specialty areas. Chapters include case studies, color illustrations, and review exercises with an answer key. New to this edition is an extensive glossary of word elements, highlighted new medical findings/issues, and a CD with additional study aids. A companion website is available. Lacks references and a date for the first edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
