Medical Terminology Systems


A word building and body systems approach!
The original word-building text is better than ever with the addition of The Medical Language Lab, a new, interactive, online experience for mastering the language of medicine. The perfect length for any course, this full-color, illustrated text uses a body systems organization with an emphasis on word building.
You’ll begin by learning the parts of words—roots, combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes. Then, use your understanding of word parts to learn medical terminology. Mnemonic devices and engaging, interactive activities make word-building fun and easy, ensuring you retain the information you need for success.
