This bestselling text provides students with the basic knowledge of medical language they need to communicate clearly with other health care team members. It presents not only medical terms built from word parts, but also those not built from word parts which are sometimes omitted from other texts. Logically organized with a body system approach, this text also provides a brief review of anatomic terminology. A wealth of exercises helps students memorize word parts and their meanings, so theyll be equipped to recognize and define new medical terms. This proven approach starts with a foundation of word parts prefixes, suffixes, and word roots then builds words by combining the parts. Also covers terms not built from word parts, and distinguishes them from those that are. Chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter list the content and page numbers, for quick and easy reference. A set of 480 flashcards is packaged with the book, providing a valuable study tool. An audio CD includes pronunciations and definitions for more than 3,000 medical terms. The text, CD, flashcards, and audio CDs can be combined to form a powerful learning package for the student. PowerPoint slides and lessons are included for instructors to use in the classroom. Many new terms and abbreviations are added, reflecting advances in technology and changes in the health care environment.

Student CD is filled with new fun, interactive exercises and games to stimulate learning.
