In 2001 I bought the 19th edition while enrolled in an alternative medicine college course; when I saw that the latest edition was available I ordered it post haste. It is fully 200 pages longer, and has, of course, the latest references and terminology; also better quality photographs…some not too pleasant to look at, but, well, after all… The appendices are very informative, and I think this is a great dictionary for any family; not just for people in the medical field, or med students. And if you do buy it, don’t pass over the introduction; it’s worth a few minutes’ read. Often I refer to this resource for general information, or when a family member or friend has a question about the body, illness or medical procedures. It has been very helpful, and clarified a lot of misinformation (or lack of accurate information) that sometimes floats around and is surmised as true. Even if you have another medical dictionary, you can’t go wrong by adding this one to your bookshelf.
I am taking courses pursuant to joining the Medical Coding profession. Unfortunately, the texts (from Pearson) are woefully inadequate with regard to a glossary and definitions. After using a few of the references available at a local library, I decided to purchase the Taber’s and am very pleased with the thoroughness of the explanations, amount of detail, quality of the illustrations and photographs, and the additional opportunity to use their on-line references.
A solid reference with a number of pluses.
I was excited to receive my Taber’s dictionary, as I am beginning an ABSN program. The description says a free one year code is included inside the front cover for accessing Tabler’s on line. I was looking forward to using this feature on campus. Guess what? No code or code key included in my dictionary that I paid over $100.00 for! (The deluxe version). Huge let down.
The book was packaged in a plastic bag and in great condition. This book has given me easy access with the thumb index and I also use the box it came in for easy storage.
I needed this book for PT School and Amazon provides brand new copies with all disks and/or access codes that you can get if you buy the book at your bookstore. Very pleased with Amazon and I will be sure to look at Amazon for my future textbook needs.
I have several medical books. I am a school for medical coding now and this is great addition to my library. Also give you online access for one year, one less book to tote around if your bags are as packed as mine. This book is small and with amazing detail. I just love it.
