A comprehensive introduction to medical terminology with an outstanding full-color art program. The text is organized by body systems and places a strong emphasis on anatomy and physiology, as well as roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Real-world application cases and physical exam, diagnosis, and treatment sections add a realistic clinical component to most chapters. A separate chapter on surgical terms is unique. Concept maps help students see how specifics fit into the big picture. Workbook style exercises include definitions, word building, vocabulary, crossword puzzles, spelling, abbreviations, and cases. A medical dictionary is built into the appendix.

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.Review:
