Suggestions for a med. dictionary?

  1. I need to get one. I would like the most current one. Do they make new ones every year? Also, can someone suggest one that they really like? There are so many different ones.

    Thanks!

    My school requires us to have a Taber's. It's the most popular as far as I know. They come out with new editions every so often. I think the current one is the 19th.

    Anyone have Webster's? I read some reviews, and that seems to be the preferred one. (And it's much cheaper). That's the one I'm leaning toward so far.

    Taber's is great...Mosby's is, too- lots of really good pics in that one.

    We use Taber's. I have it on my PDA, but I also have one on my shelf for quick reference. I like it a lot. Some people have recommended Mosby's, but for I have noticed that Taber's is the required dictionary of a lot of the nursing schools in my area.

    Taber's is our required text.

    Taber for medical dictionary, Webster's is fine as a general dictionary.
    And if you want to see the word used in a sentence, then I would suggest Longman's.
