Additional Information

The perfect length for any course, this exceptional full-color, highly illustrated text/workbook uses a body system organization to focus on word building. This beautifully designed visual text is a unique learning package that’s a true blend of words, art, and technology.

Word Building—the foundation for success begins with Barbara Gylys and the Body Systems Approach.

The med term approaches and how they differ…

Most med terms books teach by memorization—the whole word approach.
Memorize vocabulary and then try to recognize word patterns. Gylys
uses the word-building approach. First learn the patterns of medical
words before you learn the vocabulary.

Why does word-building work? It begins with the basics…

Gylys takes a common sense approach, by introducing word elements first:

  • Roots

  • Combining forms

  • Suffixes

  • Prefixes

She covers them one by one, breaking down each word part. Common
English word elements are presented… This familiarity makes it easier
for students to learn and break apart and build words. Students can
use their understanding of word parts to decipher vocabulary.

Mnemonic devices, interactive activities (in the book and on the CD)
make word-building fun and this in turn increases retention…no more tedious memorization, students learn by breaking down and rebuilding words!

“From my years of teaching, I found it was much easier for
students to learn word parts directly associated with a body system (or
specialty area), and this has been the key to my approach in all of my
texts and software products.”

—Barbara A. Gylys

I used this book a lot going through Pharmacy School. I was told to buy it for a class my first year, however, we didn't use it that much. I luckily kept the book for another year and used it a lot more. It has a lot of medical term definitions which is helpful if you need clarification in one of your classes. It was very easy to use.
Have really enjoyed reading this book. I've noticed a few minor mistakes here and there, but they don't undermine the quality of the material. I'm reading this book in preparation for PA school starting in May. I've learned a great deal from the book so far and can't wait to finish it. It will surely help me in my career as a PA. I'll be able to apply this new language daily in school and my career. The book shipped and arrived quickly in great condition.
Book is okay, but the index was not updated. For example, look up exacerbation in the index, it says p. 245, there is nothing on exacerbation on p.245. This problem has occurred on the last 5 out of 5 words I looked up while studying for a test. It's a waste of time for me because the editors couldn't update the index. They should not be allowed to get off so easy on that. Therefore the 3 stars.
