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.
