Does anyone have any advice or websites, anything, to help with learning and understanding medical prefixes and suffixes? I have a big test coming up on it, and I am just lost.
Some of the easier ones, I understand. And I understand the basic rules, such as there won't always be a prefix, but there's always a suffix.
I just get confused. Here's an example of one I'm confused on.
Tachy --> prefix
cardi --> root
what's the a? Can "a" be a suffix? I didn't think it could, but there must be a suffix there.
I'm confused on things like that. I'm also confused on keeping prefixes and root words in order. I almost kept thinking Tachy was a root, until I had to remember that it EXPLAINED the root word.
Any help keeping all this in order and getting a better understanding? Thanks!
