Using Medical Terminology: A Practical Approach

Front Cover
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006 - Medical - 998 pages

This comprehensive medical terminology textbook includes detailed coverage of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. The author's unique teaching approach emphasizes using the full terms in context, rather than breaking down words and memorizing word parts, lists, and definitions. Vibrant illustrations, a variety of exercises, and numerous other features engage students visually, auditorily, and kinesthetically to address various learning styles.

A bonus CD-ROM includes an audio glossary plus interactive exercises. LiveAdvise: Medical Terminology online faculty support and student tutoring services are available free with each text. A complete online course for use with WebCT or Blackboard is also available.
