Customer Reviews

Good purchase  March 13, 2011

I purchased this textbook because my son who is taking a course in this field and he told me that the book was very helpful and easy to understand. He said that this textbook is very easy to learn from and the workbook style makes learning more interactive. As for me, I'm very happy to deal with ecampus. The book looks as if it is new and the price was good. Thanks.

"The book is useful for students in a short medical terminology course or as self-paced material for anyone pursuing a career in the allied health professions. For a short course in medical terminology, this book is very thorough and detailed, making for an enjoyable reading experience. This excellent book is highly recommended for any student going into healthcare. College/university and public libraries would find it a valuable resource as well." Doody Review by Steven K.
