Doody Review by Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT, AE-C(William Beaumont Hospitals):

“The book is useful for students in a short medical terminology course or as self-paced material for anyone pursuing a career in the allied health professions.For a short course in medical terminology, this book is very thorough and detailed, making for an enjoyable reading experience.This excellent book is highly recommended for any student going into healthcare. College/university and public libraries would find it a valuable resource as well.”

I would recommend this book to anyone for medical terminology. I got it for my LPN class. It has great review at the ends of each chapter and sections to make sure you truly understand and the answers are in the back if you don’t know them or cant find them. good luck!!
So 3 stars because I can’t say I like or love reading this book. It’s dry material that’s meant mainly for memorization of terminology…it’s not going to be fun. I’m reading this book and if you need to read this book, it’s because of a necessity and no other reason. In that way it does it’s job and gives you pretty good techniques in basically learning a new language. It’s not easy to do but it would be much more difficult without this book.
