Abstract:

"Illustrated Guide to Medical Terminology makes learning medical terminology enjoyable for everyone! The unique approach of this book makes learning easy, and its genius lies in its simplicity: "Read, look and listen in order to speak and write." Specifically, it asks you to read the text, view diagrams, write structure names, complete review exercises, listen to and repeat correct pronunciation of terms using the Free Audio CD-ROM, and finally write terms down on paper. This well-illustrated book is ideal for English-as-a-second-language learners, as well as visual and auditory learners." "Key Features: Pronunciations presented phonetically beside every new term and repeated throughout the chapter ensure speaking terms correctly. Helping You Remember offers suggestions to improve your memory of difficult terms or concepts. In Brief sidebars contain brief definitions of terms found on the page, for quick review. Practice for Learning reviews ensure you have mastered the material presented and are ready to move on to the next section. Look-Alike and Sound-Alike Words and Medical Terms in Context are found at the close of each chapter for learning reinforcement. Book jacket."--Jacket.
