About the Author
Juanita Davies is an award-winning instructor who taught anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology in various health care disciplines. She also has written extensively on the subject of medical terminology. Her early work includes A PROGRAMMED LEARNING APPROACH TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY and an online medical terminology test bank containing 15,000 questions. Her first book with Cengage MODERN MEDICAL LANGUAGE is a high-level text comprising anatomy, medical terminology, pathology, signs and symptoms, diagnostic procedures, and treatment. Her second ESSENTIALS OF MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY is an anatomy and medical terminology text with a complexity level that is suitable for two-semester terminology courses as well as adaptable to one-semester courses. Her third A QUICK REFERENCE TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY is a useful medical terminology handbook that can also be used as a very inexpensive terminology text. It has been bundled with anatomy and physiology texts to form a comprehensive single text. Her fourth book AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY is particularly suitable for today's visual learners with its focus on comprehensive illustrations and writing directed at those illustrations. Although both are comprehensive, ILLUSTRATED has a different delivery style than ESSENTIALS.
