5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Useful June 16 2007
By T. Langdon - Published on Amazon.com
This book is pretty outdated for the most part especially with much of the formatting that it uses.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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook Choice Sept. 1 2013

After reading most of the earlier reviews, I decided to take a chance with this book and purchased it. It was a great choice for me. The book has most everything you need to get started with this career choice. It also has the updated version of HIPAA and gives great info and study material for you to become a Certifified Medical Transcriptionist. The CD was also included and so far I am happy with the purchase. I started on working with this book right away.

For those who did not get a CD, it should be noted that they may not come with one if you are choosing to buy New (used). It usually states that information about the book and if you are not sure, you can always email the company to ask before purchasing.

I was greatly surprised that the item came before the scheduled time. It was not due until after the Labor Day holiday and it arrived yesterday (Saturday). Nothing is perfect but, this company came really close and because I trust Amazon, I am never overly worried about my ordered products.
