Excellent Book!! Jan. 6 2009
By Tonex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book with not much expection after reading the previous review, but was very surprised by the amount of information in this book. Regarding the style, I think the reviewer was referring to the 5th edition which is the one I have. However, if you know the updated format, then you are all set because only the format needs to be changed alittle, but the terms are the same. It is a very detailed book which include examples on how to prepare a medical transcriptionist resume', flyers, writing job description,a full appendix of sample documents, detailed information on punctuations, medical terminology, styles and rules of typing medical documents and other medical corespondence and a whole lot more. I have the older edition, which also has answers to the practice exercises and it comes with a practice CD as well.

This is a complete book on medical transcription. It has many examples of different types of transcribed medical records and even takes you on the topic of preparing your resume' for your interview. A friend of mine has the 6th edition and there is really not much difference. The CD in the 6th is much better than the 5th though because it has CMT/RMT examination tools and transcriptions snippets. However, I have the CMT Review Guide so I could live without the new edition,s CD.

Somewhat Useful June 16 2007
By T. Langdon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is pretty outdated for the most part especially with much of the formatting that it uses. If you use this book you should make yourself aware of the new industry standards via AAMT Book of Style.

However, this book is very good for learning or brushing up on your grammar skills, and it has some pretty helpful lists and things that you can pull out and place in a notebook.

Medical Transcription Techniques and Procedures Sept. 7 2011

Medical Transcription Techniques and Procedures with CD-ROM, Sixth EditionThis is my second Medical Transcription book that I've ordered from Amazon. The books are great,but it is the CD Rom that is difficult to work on the computer so that you can use it.The reason I bought the books are to use the CD Rom for practice and to keep up with my skills.But overall the book is a great study guide and I am sure that the CD Rom will be too.
Almost all Medical Transcription Jobs are no longer available. Don't waste your money. Oct. 22 2014

Do NOT purchase anything for Medical Transcription!! Please!! This is an almost defunct career choice. As a 37+ year veteran in this field, almost every job has been absorbed by the new computer policies of the Obamacare regime. Almost every transcription job has been cut. There are no jobs, so it's not wise to invest in any tools to do this job. Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money on anything related to this field. It is just about impossible to get a job and there are people with YEARS of experience all over the country who are out of work. I know of one facility that went from 40 transcriptions, down to 3, and that is just one facility!!
