Compact & Well Bound March 31 2013
By Jay Mittener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

This dictionary is perfect for my coding class. It has pronunciations which is what I needed. It also has anatomy pictures which are very helpful.

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!
Need a very large pocket Aug. 22 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
Good text but internet is faster Sept. 2 2014
By Cyber Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good book but anymore it's faster to just google things. I'm not using this book as much as I thought I would and find it's not worth the cost. Unless technology is unreliable go with the internet.
