This is an awesome book for medical students.
It's easy, clear, colorful and contain great images!
It's also not very deep or even very hard to understand and approximately the last 100 page are dictionary :)

The reason why I finished it early it's because I'm a radiology student 3rd year so, I'm really familiar with the anatomy for sure & I learned some terminology through my studying but, I was looking for a terminology book to widen my gaze and because I want to learn more so, yeah! I have

This book was so helpful while getting my CNA and now that I am reading and working through it again it is even more helpful then before. It helps you learn (or review) terminology but also gives some basic review of anatomy and physiology within the terminology so that you know what it refers to. As I said it works great for review the second time you use it. I am just starting to use the CDs now and I know that they will be very helpful.
I'm teaching Med Term at the community college. So most of my reading this past week (and for the next four) focuses around that.

as i'm not related to the medical field, but working in a medical institute.. i guess this book is simple enough :)
Every exercise are repeated so much, that i get frustrated sometimes writing the same every time.
