About the Author

Jean Tannis Dennerll, BS, CMA is the Department Chair for Allied Health at Jackson Community College in Jackson, Michigan.

Before I purchased the Kindle version I checked with Amazon to see if I would receive access to the additional content that is on the CD-Rom. I was assured multiple times by different people that I would receive an email containing an access code to a website for the additional content. That is not true. You will have to purchase the physical CD-Rom from the publisher for over a hundred bucks. The text is great though. It makes learning new terminology quite easy.

Everything arrived in a timely manner and in good condition. Amazon gave me the best deal available but I really wish a spiral-bound textbook did not cost three figures. That’s a college textbook industry scam.

This book has a great approach to teach you suffixes and prefixes of medical terminology. It all starts to come together on how easy it is to create and read medical terms now. There is a lot of information to learn, but using the free app, Study Blue on my iPhone made this process super easy. It’s an app to create your own flash cards and tests you. I highly suggest the app to be used with this books to nail down all the definitions.
I needed to purchase this book for my Med. Terminology class. I needed it asap and it did arrive promptly. I bought it new and this was one of the cheapest prices as compared to other sites. Book has a soft cover with ring binding and inner flap which can be used as a book mark. Great book! It is such a great book that you don’t even need to attend class for this course.
