It is broken down into concise self-instruction frames followed by review frames for immediate feedback and reinforcement. Actual medical records and medical record analysis activities are used extensively throughout the book. Highlights of this edition include a more engaging design, additional illustrations, more detailed coverage of term components, chapter objectives checklists, and acronyms and abbreviations charts. A free bound-in CD-ROM contains Stedman's audio pronunciations and interactive exercises. LiveAdvise: Medical Terminology--an online student tutoring and faculty support service--is free with the book.
