An engaging and hands-on way to learn the language of health care, Stedman’s Medical Terminology, 2nd edition uses a proven “work text” approach that helps students master the information they need to communicate successfully in the health care world. More than 4,500 questions make this the most comprehensive medical terminology resource on the market.
Each chapter begins with enough coverage of anatomy and physiology to provide the context for learning the medical terms, followed by Word Part and Terminology Tables that provide strategies for figuring out the meaning of new words and connecting them to the appropriate body system. Exercises in every chapter progress in a meaningful way from recall and review, to word building, to comprehension, and finally to application and analysis. This approach allows the student to a see their vocabulary grow and to connect what they are learning to a real-life context.
