Summary

Unlike other manuals that rely on memorization of vocabulary lists to learn medical terminology, Medical Terminology Made Easy, 3E promotes learning through word building, the process of defining Greek and Latin roots to correctly construct and decipher medical language. Units are grouped by topic and body system and each builds from simple to complex through a series of instructional and interactive frames and pronunciation coaching. Ideal for individuals who wish to teach themselves basic medical terminology or as a supplement to entry-level health care oriented courses.
