Synopsis:

Make learning medical terminology faster and more fun with Quick & Easy Medical Terminology, 6th Edition! Featuring CDs with interactive games and audio pronunciations, this book helps you begin reading, writing, and speaking medical terms in the shortest time possible. Small chunks of information are always followed immediately by exercises, so students will be learning "every minute!" The many puzzles, activities, and games make it easier to understand and remember terminology. Written in a clear, conversational style by Peggy C. Leonard, MT, MEd, this book gives you the tools to communicate effectively in the health care environment.

  • A companion CD reinforces learning with fun, interactive exercises, including medical reports and Hear It/Spell It exercises.
  • Two audio CDs let you listen to correct pronunciations of medical terms and encourage you to pronounce each term aloud.
  • A flexible, body systems organization lets you go through the material in any order after completing the orientation chapters, making it easy to coordinate your study with other courses such as anatomy and physiology.
  • The programmed learning approach presents content in small blocks called 'frames' that allow you to learn the content and get immediate feedback on your progress before proceeding.
  • Diverse learning styles are accommodated by a wide variety of exercises -- labeling diagrams, writing terms, choosing pronunciation accents, recognizing misspelled terms, matching word parts, interpreting terms within health reports, and categorizing terms.
  • Unique! A conversational writing style makes the book more readable and enjoyable.
  • Unique! Thorough explanations of terms help you understand and remember the material by presenting terminology in a medical context.
  • A consistent format to body systems chapters uses categories to simplify the learning of terms, with each chapter including function; structure; diseases, disorders, and diagnostic terms; and surgical and therapeutic interventions.
  • Healthcare reports and case studies allow you to apply your knowledge to real-life situations.
