Programmed Learning Approach to Medical Terminology, 3rd Edition is ideal for self-paced study, classroom use, or distance learning. Reflecting current medical usage, the book facilitates study by including questions on the right side of each page and answers on the left. A bookmark (packaged with the text) allows students to cover the answers as they move down the page and reveal them as they go. This edition features a more concise presentation, new content, exercises in the book and online, and a robust array of online teaching and learning resources.
