An essential guide for anyone in a healthcare career, The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Medical Terminology shows readers how to master medicine's core terminology so they can successfully pass their academic courses and certification tests.
Readers will be introduced to Greek and Latin roots — the building blocks for deciphering any term encountered. They'll also find an outline of the body's systems to learn terms in context, an explanation of the body's physiology, and a primer on commonly used terms for diseases, injuries, conditions, tests, and procedures.
