Fantastic Book for Self-Studying  March 26, 2011
by


I just graduated from high school and have a few months between now and medical college. Wanting to get a head start on my studying, I tried reading some anatomy books, but couldn't seem to get very far, then I found this textbook. From the first glance, I could tell that it was a lot more accessible than most other books (which are meant for people who are already in medical school or the medical profession).






Medical Terminology : An Illustrated Guide: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

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 textbook 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.
