Summary

MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY: A WORD BUILDING APPROACH, 7/e is a comprehensive, proven text that offers a logical, simple system for learning medical vocabulary primarily by building terms from word parts. It first introduces medical terminology and its essential suffixes and prefixes; then guides students logically through each key body system, working from the outside (integumentary system) inward, and from simple systems to complex. Additional specialty chapters cover oncology, radiology and nuclear medicine, and mental health. Updated throughout, this Seventh Editionrs"s many new learning features include: "at-a-glance" A&P tables; tables of combining forms with meanings; up-front numbered Learning Outcomes sections; "Building Your Medical Vocabulary" color-coded word parts; new labeling exercises; and 17 new practical applications using realistic medical records. MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY: A WORD BUILDING APPROACH, 7/eencourages students to "get connected" to an engaging multimedia assessment experience on www.MyMedicalTerminologyLab.com . This powerful website in combination with the book is ideal for helping students see how word parts connect to form medical terms and how anatomical parts connect to form body systems.
