This easy-to-use text provides a systematic approach to learning medical terms and understanding the basics of veterinary medicine. Organized by terms used in each of the body systems, additional chapters also cover lab tests, procedures, and treatments. Several species-specific chapters are also included. This new edition offers greatly expanded art work. The additional images offer greater clarity for students and serve as review illustrations for other courses and in professional practice...The audio portion of the CD-ROM offers students the opportunity to both hear and see the term when learning basic terms used in the field of veterinary medicine. This is a must-have resource for anyone searching for a systematic approach to learning veterinary medical terminology.
Just a couple of nitpicky things though: The CD that came with the book has recordings of the words being spoken and nothing else, and the book doesn't include pronunciations with accent marks (The included breakdown of syllables could be pronounced multiple ways.) It would have been nice to have a more thorough CD (or no CD) and have better pronunciation material throughout the book instead.
Also, in an attempt to turn some of the related terms into a linear "story," the author obscured some of the definitions. It took me multiple readings of them in order to decipher which term went with which definition.
But like I said, that's just me being nitpicky. Overall, it's an excellent book. It will be in my collection long after I graduate!
