Using a programmed learning format, this user-friendly, four-color book allows students to learn medical terminology at their own pace. The material is divided into small, easy-to-read units called frames. Each frame ends with a fill-in sentence or question that tests readers' understanding of the frame's content. The text begins with the basic components of medical terminology -- suffixes, prefixes, word roots, and combining forms -- and presents the material according to the major body systems.
-- Reinforces word building by presenting root words, combining forms, and prefixes and suffixes according to body system
-- Multiple tear-out review exercises within each unit check student comprehension and recall; can be used by students in independent study or in class settings
-- Each book contains two audiocassette tapes that accompany exercises within each unit and reinforce pronunciation, meaning, and spelling of all medical words introduced
-- Instructor's Guide includes a course outline, crossword puzzles, sample tests, coloring exercises, plus additional case studies
