Doody Review by Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT, AE-C(William Beaumont Hospitals):
"The book is useful for students in a short medical terminology course or as self-paced material for anyone pursuing a career in the allied health professions.For a short course in medical terminology, this book is very thorough and detailed, making for an enjoyable reading experience.This excellent book is highly recommended for any student going into healthcare. College/university and public libraries would find it a valuable resource as well."
