Designed for self-instruction or classroom use, this quick and easy textbook is ideally suited for one- or two-credit medical terminology courses.

A bonus CD-ROM includes a pronunciation glossary with approximately 1,500 terms, plus interactive exercises and a final exam. LiveAdvise: Medical Terminology online faculty support and student tutoring services are available free with each text. An online course for use with WebCT or Blackboard is also available.
