Absolutely LOVE the flashcard function!!!
Easy to use, easy to study anywhere, anytime.The ebook itself is an easy to read format. Material is presented well and the illustrations bring it home.I have the new digital version. The one thing I don’t like is there is no information in the book referencing where to find them online pronunciation material. That would have made this book a 5 star + review.
A Short Course in Medical Terminology is a Very informative ebook! Helped me complete my assignments and homework for my surgical technology program!
