I bought this for a medical terminology course I was taking. I was afraid it would be too basic, but I learned a lot.

This book is a cross between a traditional textbook and a workbook. Each chapter contains a short section (~5-10 pages) of text and figures on the topic being studied, followed by a break down of related roots and terminology and a short personal testimony from a patient, which shows the clinical relevance of the information being studied. The last half of each chapter contains a number of different activities fill-in-the-blank and matching style to practice the information covered.

What's helpful?
-Emphasis on learning roots - rather than requiring you to memorize each term, this book focuses on common roots found in medical words so you will be prepared to confront new words you come across

-Plenty of practice activities - I found there were more practice exercises in each chapter than I needed to do well, so I skipped many of... Read more
I had the ninth edition when I took my medical coding course, and I loved it! I was nervous about ordering the 10th edition because sometimes the sequels are not as good, but I decided to order it because I assumed it would have the most current information...and unlike the 9th edition, it also had abbreviations that were no longer used (and the substitutes that should be used).

The 10th edition still contains many things I had loved about its predecessor. Explanations are very straight-forward and simple to understand (moreso than in the last edition), even for those new to anatomy and medical terminology. The exercises give you plenty of practice so that you absorb the information. It also has the answers after each section so you can check your work.

There were some things I didn't like as well in the 10th edition in comparison to the 9th edition:
1. The book is not as sturdy.
2. I really miss the CD, which was one of the best things about the... Read more
I purchased this book new instead of used thinking it would come with an access code as it alludes to in the description. Unfortunately, the description points you to a QR code that links to a mobile app that may or may not be useful later in the semester but gave no access to my course online - I had to purchase access to that directly from the publisher for an additional $50.

The content of the book looks great but some students such as myself would benefit from a clearer description regarding access to the online Evolve course which is not included with the purchase of a new book as the description and some reviews might lead you to believe. Instead, you get access to free mobile app and online "resources" which looks similar to the course I had to purchase access to but without the graded modules.
