Overview

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.

Juanita J. Davies, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Juanita Davies is an award-winning instructor who taught anatomy, physiology, and medical terminology in various health care disciplines. She also has written extensively on the subject of medical terminology. Her early work includes A PROGRAMMED LEARNING APPROACH TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY and an online medical terminology test bank containing 15,000 questions. Her first book with Cengage -- MODERN MEDICAL LANGUAGE -- is a high-level text comprising anatomy, medical terminology, pathology, signs and symptoms, diagnostic procedures, and treatment. Her second -- ESSENTIALS OF MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY -- is an anatomy and medical terminology text with a complexity level that is suitable for two-semester terminology courses as well as adaptable to one-semester courses. Her third -- A QUICK REFERENCE TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY -- is a useful medical terminology handbook that can also be used as a very inexpensive terminology text. It has been bundled with anatomy and physiology texts to form a comprehensive single text. Her fourth book -- AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY -- is particularly suitable for today's visual learners with its focus on comprehensive illustrations and writing directed at those illustrations. Although both are comprehensive, ILLUSTRATED has a different delivery style than ESSENTIALS.
