Very good textbook  March 20, 2011

This textbook has everything you need to know about the fundamentals of the human body and the language used in the medical field is in this book. The book is very helpful in learning medical terms and is set up very well. The self quizzes at the end of the chapters are helpful. This text is written in easily read form. Because of the nature of the material, it forces you to use words and their parts over and over in context. By filling out all of the areas available as instructed, it makes memorization virtually needless. You really learn the material.
