5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, very thorough March 8 2009
By Emily Crouch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a class, ended up dropping it (before it started), and decided to study the book anyway. This book is very thorough; it has a ton of information in it and is good about explaining the prefixes and suffixes and roots of the terms. They really break down each word to make sure you understand it. They also have actual photos of several different skin disorders and things of that nature, which I found to be useful too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great study tool July 6 2009
By Patricia I. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the recommended book to prepare for a medical vocabulary clep test for my physician associate program. Each section is divided by body system and not only contains the roots, prefixes, and suffixes pertinent to that system but also has basic clinical information as well. A great study tool for anyone going into healthcare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Health Care Med Term Dec 24 2012
By Mel S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book goes more into depth than another author had for med term that I had purchased in the past. It addresses chart abbreviations as well, which is a very helpful and relevant tool for those going into the healthcare field. New or used, I would recommend this textbook.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version not the best choice for this textbook Jan. 29 2014
By MARJORIE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love kindle books, but this textbook did not live up to my expectations. The print is small and cannot be enlarged as easily as the regular books (using the Font change button). You need to use your fingers to enlarge the print which is very inconsistent and very distracting when you are trying to study the material. Another issue is that the paperback book comes with a CD-ROM and the Kindle version does not. Also, there is supposed to be a code number at the back of the book that allows the student access to an internet site to further learning. I was unable to locate that number anywhere. I was going to try to return this book and get the paperback, but I decided to keep it. Although I am starting to get used to this version, I am not going to order any more textbooks on my Kindle. I'll stick with the hard copies even though they cost more. Please don't think that I am opposed to Amazon textbooks. The prices are definitely lower than the college bookstores and the delivery is excellent. I will absolutely continue to be a customer.
