    ITEM#: 3400079

    One of the outstanding problems of the biologist, whether he be beginning student or specialists, is that of understanding technical terms. The best way to understand and remember technical terms is to understand first their component parts, or roots. This dictionary has been designed primarily to meet the needs of the beginning student, the medical student, and the taxonomist, but it should be of value to all biologists.

    • Must have for those studying medical terminology

      This dictionary was highly recommended by my instructor for Medical Terminology class, and it has been extremely helpful. I cannot say it is a fun book to read, but it is full of word roots, prefixes, and suffixes that a student in the medical field need to master. Must have if you are studying to be in the field.
