Now in its Sixth Edition, Medical Terminology: An Illustrated Guide is geared to the mid-level medical terminology course, and includes moderate amounts of anatomy and physiology. The author uses a stepwise approach to learning medical terminology. Part 1 describes how medical terms are built from word parts; Part 2 introduces body structures, diseases, and treatments; and Part 3 describes each body system. Individual chapters also build on knowledge in stages, with Key Terms sections listing those terms most commonly used and later Supplementary Terms sections presenting more specialized terms.

This edition has a more reader-friendly design, provides more complete representation of the health professions, and includes dental terminology. Written pronunciations are included for all appropriate terms.

A robust online ancillary package aids retention through exercises, games, and activities. PASSport to Success™ allows students to identify their personal learning style and target exercises and activities best suited to their learning style.

Currently using this to study my first exam as a first year PA student. Very concise and yet detailed. Each chapter has chapter review questions that are very useful in testing your knowledge of what you read and also helping you remember it. Definitely worth the price I bought it for.
