Fabulous book to introduce any lay-person to veterinary terminology. Lots of pictures and exercises to help reinforce the "language". Definitely would recommend this to students or anyone working in a veterinary clinic to help them grasp the terminology and understand what it all means.

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!

Badly Designed Programs on CD Dec 21 2010
By Sparkles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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. :)

An Amazing Textbook Sept. 12 2009
By A. Crandall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

loved the kindle version and the book the CD was OK April 4 2014
By A. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I ordered this as a rental for kindle (I used it on my PC) as a backup to my text book, which I bought new from the school book store. The class was offered online, so the search option from the kindle version is very helpful especially for timed tests. I have found that the book has also been especially helpful in a few of my other veterinary technician classes, using it as reference quite a few times. The included CD is OK (which is why I'm giving this 4 instead of 5 stars), it doesn't contain all of the references that the book does and some of the words didn't have the same descriptions that were offered in the book, although I did find the games helpful. Overall I'm happy with this purchase, both the online and the book earned me an A in veterinary terminology.
