Book Description

An Illustrated Guide to Veterinary Medical Terminology, Third Edition provides a visual approach to learning medical terms and understanding the basics of veterinary medicine. A systematic process of breaking down medical terms into their component parts allows readers to comprehend the root medical concepts and apply critical thinking skills when faced with new and unfamiliar medical terminology. Chapters progress from basic terminology related to anatomical positioning to body systems, and then to species- specific terminology. Case studies exemplify how medical terminology would be experienced in an actual veterinary practice.

Book was listed as used, however it is in such great shape, I think it is new. Delivery was not as quick as I would have liked, but it was well within the time frame given. Fantastic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Badly Designed Programs on CD Dec 21 2010
By Sparkles - Published on Amazon.com
Overall this is a good book, but the review sections and almost everything on the CD leaves a lot to be desired.

Outline of the problems:
-Review questions have no answers
-Practice quizzes tell you how many you got wrong, but don't tell you what the right answers were
-The games may freeze up
-The games are just, overall, badly designed and not that helpful

I stopped using the CD and used my own tried-and-true studying techniques to learn the material. I got an A in the class. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Textbook Sept. 12 2009
By A. Crandall - Published on Amazon.com
This book isn't just some old boring textbook. It has a CD that has a few games that helps you remember the material. For games it has hangman, crosswords, and a spelling bee. It has essential material for learning veterinary terminology. If you are going into a veterinary field it is of at most importance that you know the terminology; know what it means, how to spell it, and how to put it together. After going through a few chapters I don't think I have forgotten one term. Learning and fun go hand in hand. This textbook is well worth it. This is the third edition not the second. The same material as the second, but more games. In fact, my roommate has the second edition and has copied crosswords and diagrams out of my book because her book didn't have them. Truly an amazing book.

5.0 out of 5 stars the title of this book doesnt even do it justice..... Oct. 12 2009
By Cora R. Yuen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is clearly more than just a "terminology" book. It goes into massive detail on the causes and treatments on highlighted diseases, injuries, etc.. I personally think that this book should cost way more than what i bought it for.
