5.0 out of 5 stars Compact & Well Bound March 31 2013
By Jay Mittener - Published on Amazon.com

This is a very nice reference material. It's got great binding and a nice bendable yet resilient cover. The middle section is all anatomy pictures which is very helpful in a reference guide. It also comes with a code for the Dorland's online medical library and medical spell checker. I was hoping this would be light enough to carry in my bag to wherever I'm studying but it's a pretty heavy reference material, that's my only criticism- and really, it has to be heavy to be what it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars "INFORMATIVE, CONCISE, EXTREMELY USEFUL!" Sept. 12 2014
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
I have been purchasing different medical dictionaries within the last 35 years. Although Taber's Medical Dictionary is my old-time favorite, I also needed a pocket medical dictionary for quick reference. Dorland's Pocket Dictionary is extremely useful, and informative. I found it to be as helpful as Taber's Dictionary, and it's packed with tons of information, as well as providing illustrations. The medical terminology is right at your fingertips as an excellent quick reference guide, and I always carried it around in my tote-bag. As a Pocket Medical Dictionary, it comes in very handy when needed, and is worth every penny. Highly recommended to all healthcare professionals!
5.0 out of 5 stars Need a very large pocket Aug. 22 2014

Great edition; thumb indexing is very helpful to look up words fast. The pronunciation guides are clear and appear to be accurate. The cover is flexible yet sturdy. I have no idea who has a pocket large enough for this pocket dictionary! Came with a code to access the online site, but haven't needed it yet--once used, it can't be transferred to another user, which is fine with me.

The book does not define as many different words as I would have preferred but it does have most of the important ones I need.
