FIFTH EDITION

Learn at your own pace with the guidebook that has sold over 200,000 copies

How does kinesialgia occur? What does "arthrotomy" mean? Quick Medical Terminology answers these questions and many more. Using a unique word-building system that begins with a review of Greek and Latin word roots, this book provides the tools necessary for building and sustaining a large working repertoire of medical terms. Step by step, it will help you understand the simple logic behind hundreds of seemingly incomprehensible words.

Like all Self-Teaching Guides, Quick Medical Terminology allows you to build gradually on what you have learned—at your own pace. Questions and self-tests reinforce the information in each chapter and allow you to skip ahead or focus on specific areas of concern. Packed with current information, helpful review exercises, and up-to-date examples, this accessible guide is an essential resource for practitioners and students who need to expand, improve, or refresh their medical vocabularies.
