Book News Annotation:
New (and abundant) color graphics, new case studies, new content on disease prevention--incorporated into a venerable textbook used by countless aspiring medical transcriptionists from its first publication in 1976. Now in its ninth edition, this text presents the study of terminology in vivid context so that students not only systematically learn about words and their parts, but they also learn about bodies (and their parts) and the basics of medical treatment. The organization is logical and engaging, and the text includes plenty of exercises and review sheets. The included CD contains animations, games, and pronunciation (by the author) of some 3,000 terms. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
