This is a workbook, a write-in text in which student are asked to answer exercise questions (and check their responses), complete review sheets, and label diagrams, thereby testing and retesting their understanding of the material presented. The book abounds with factual information to enhance knowledge and comprehension of medical terms. Anatomical, physiological, and pathological material related to body systems is presented so that students of all backgrounds can learn. Flow charts and simple anatomical diagrams accompany discussions of each system of the body. Thus, logical and rational comprehension of terms is emphasized, rather than rote memorization of isolated words.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0721685692, Paperback)

The Language of Medicine demonstrates the author's unique method of teaching, in which students learn how to divide complex medical terms into their component parts. The meanings of these terms are carefully described in the context of how the body works in health and disease. In a workbook format, the first four chapters introduce word analysis and terminology from the body as a whole. Subsequent chapters focus on a body system or medical specialty. Laboratory tests, clinical procedures, medical reports, and practical applications are included throughout the text. Students learn to master the medical language through word analysis and seeing terminology in action. Terminology and complex medical processes are presented in an easy-to-understand manner, readily accessible to students of all levels.
