The third edition of this user-friendly book reflects current trends and new approaches to teaching medical terminology. It uses a programmed learning format to give students the freedom to learn medical terminology at their own pace but can also be used in the classroom. The new art work throughout the book enables the student to see a true representation of the body system or pathological condition. To help students learn easily and quickly, each body system unit includes a summary of major combining forms, a comprehensive pathology section, and additional medical records and evaluations.
