    This is a great reference for the Medical Terminology. It breaks things down so that the average person can really grasp the concept. Plus the illustrations in the book are FANTASTIC!

I highly recommend this book for the Medical Terminology or just for curiosity in the medical field. ...more info

  • Great for Medical Terminolgy
    I love this reference book - This is an update of the one I had bought in 1992. I think the information is well presented. I wish the printing were a bit larger so it would be easier to find words quickly. I would have loved a word part breakdown in the back (prefixes, suffixes, combined forms, etc.) for quick reference....more info

  • Very Detailed
    So far my husband and I have found this book to be very helpful, we have only had it a month and are both taking medical terminology. He's taking the class for a biology degree, and I'm taking the class for massage therapy. Every time we have looked up a word, it has been there. If it needs a picture, there is one. It always gives you the root word with prefix and suffix separated and what language the word came from. The thumb index makes it much easier to find pages quickly than the books that don't have them. The definitions are easy to understand and are oftentimes more helpful than the definitions in either of our textbooks....more info

  • Higher price for nothing
    I ordered and paid for this product, $56.79. Taber's Cyclopedia Medical Dictionary & Taber's Electronic Medical Dictionary CD-ROM V 3.0.
    The "&Taber's Electronic Medical Dictionary CD-ROM V 3.0" is an "online" version only for the extra $25.00, I can access this feature for only the next 12 months.
    Product pictured shows an "actual" CD-ROM.
    This is misleading advertising.
    Now I discover there is nothing else I can do except send it back, and I needed it 2 days ago for my daughters class. There is no place that I can find at Amazon to complain about this and perhaps obtain the "so called" CD-ROM.
    Hey, if I'm wrong I'll apologize, but, what would anyone think?...more info

  • Great medical reference book
    I used one of these at my job and liked it so well that I bought one for myself when I retired. It will answer pretty much any question you have about ailments, treatments, etc....more info
  • Does not run from PC (only with CD): this is nonsense

  • Recommended by my EMS Class
    This book was recommended by my EMS class as a long life investment if you plan to be in the medical field... particularly if your going to be a nurse. I really love this dictionary over the Webster one because of the visual aides that the Taber's provides. Only down fall is it's not lightweight and the pages are like bible paper. Still, from my experience so far, it's been the best reference book for all that medical jargon. It really has come in handy for my EMT class. :)...more info
