Jane Rice. I would like for you to close your eyes and go back in time with me. To a time before most of you were born. The year is 1947 and I am a little girl with brown hair that is braided into pigtails. I am very shy and afraid-for, you see, I am in the second grade and I cannot read. Not one little word. The teacher discovered this and made me sit on a tall metal stool in front of the classroom with a dunce cap on my head. Still to this day, I get very nervous when I have to get up in front of a crowd of people.
My mother taught me to read because back then, there were no special classes for children with learning disabilities. I did not learn "phonetics," but memorized everything. I still have trouble pronouncing words, but I can tell you all you want to know about a medical word.
After the death of two brothers, my father, and the impending death of my mother, I prayed for something else to do, something that would help take away the pain and the hurt. In 1982 my prayers were answered with a most precious gift: Medical Terminology with Human Anatomy, which was first published in September of 1985.
I owe so much to God and my best friend and husband, Charles Larry Rice. Larry helps me in all that I do. We have a lovely adopted daughter, Melissa, who came into our lives 34 years ago when she was 3 weeks old. She has blessed us with a son-in-law, Doug, and five precious grandchildren: Zachary, Benjamin, Jacob, Mary Katherine, and Elizabeth Ann.
Although I am now retired, I had a wonderful teaching career. Because of my childhood experiences I became a caring and devoted teacher. As Medical Assisting Program Director at Coosa Valley Technical Institute, I developed the original curriculum for the medical assisting program and taught my favorite subject, medical terminology, for 29 years. I am grateful to my many wonderful students who taught me so much and touched my life with their unique qualities.

NEW TO THIS EDITION
MEDICAL WORD BUILDING TECHNIQUE—A TIME-PROVEN APPROACH
The fifth edition of Medical Terminology with Human Anatomy is still organized by body systems and specialty areas, with the component parts of medical words presented as they relate to each system of the body and specialty area. Prefixes and suffixes are repeated throughout the text, while word roots and combining forms are presented according to the system or specialty area to which they relate. Once the material in Chapters 1 and 2 has been mastered, the student should know approximately 87 prefixes, 68 roots/combining forms, and 77 suffixes. To build a medical vocabulary, all the student has to do is recall the word parts that they have learned and link them with the new component parts presented in each chapter. This word-building technique, while not complicated, is different from other terminology texts that have students learn prefixes, roots, combining forms and suffixes as separate entities generally not related to the terminology of a body system. It is much easier to learn component parts directly associated with a body system or specialty area and this is the key to the time-proven approach of Medical Terminology with Human Anatomy.
