I decided to get a head start on my basic med term class. EEK! It's challenging. First chapter is on the basic word structure.
I made up flashcards of the prefixes, suffixes and combining forms.
We're using Devi-Ellen Chabner's Medical Terminology
: A Short Course 4th edition Very good book- a ton things to fill in. It also came with a cd that has more review on it in a quiz format. And some matching games. It says there are coloring pages and more things on the website but I haven't checked it out yet.
So far it's pretty fun even if a bit challenging.

It is a small book called "A Quick Reference to Medical Terminology". :spin:
By the way, what do you feel it will help you as you go into the nursing program? I just think it will, and I think the instructors may expect us to have somewhat of an understanding of the terms they will use.

I took Med Terminology last semester online. I think it's a great class! TexasAngel, I'm just curious as to the title of the little book that is soon to become your second Bible. :spin:
