    Book Description

    Make no mistake about it. You need legal guidance and business solutions specifically for NPs—not RNs, PAs, or physicians. Nurse Practitioner's Business Practice and Legal Guide, Second Edition focuses specifically and in-depth on the legal and business issues that NPs face, and provides comprehensive, state by state coverage of the Nurse Practitioner's scope of practice and state regulations.The second edition to this best seller also covers:

    Federal regulations; Prescription and hospital privileges; Negligence and malpractice; Risk management;and Owning your own practice. Written by a nurse practitioner who is also a practicing attorney, this book provides the unique point of view of an author who knows what legal and business problems arise on a daily basis. Buppert draws her knowledge from the law, actual legal cases, and her own personal experience in starting and operating her business and assisting NPs in setting up their own practices. This second edition will serve as an excellent reference for practicing nurse practitioners and those planning to set up their own practice, and also as an excellent text for graduate nursing programs. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars 2nd edition
    I found Carolyn Buppert's second edition of Business Practice and Legal Guide to be very helpful. The additional chapters are useful for my practice and for research on a state wide level. I would recommend this book to nurse practitioners and students of the profession. It is proving to be a valuable resource for improving NP practice in Alabama. Be sure to get the second edition (2003/2004)as the first was published in 1995.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Information is outdated
    As a grad student interested in starting my own practice upon graduation, I found this book to be useless. It has been reprinted by another publishing company and its original copyright date is 1999. Between then and now - 2004 - a lot of things have changed. Therefore, I would recommend that anyone who requires current information should look elsewhere. This is a very expensive book as is not helpful at all!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for any nurse practitioner
    I had the pleasure of reading this book while finishing my last year in nurse practitioner school.

    Ms. Buppert is a master in defining how to negotiate business contracts.

    I met the author at a nurse practioner conference in Nashville Tn and she was very down to earth and truly magnificent in her knowledge of laws affecting nurse practioners.

    I highly recommend this book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Informative, helpful
    This book is a great way to access state-by-state information related to NP practice. I do recommend that readers not solely rely on its information. They should still contact each state's board of nursing. I found discrepancies between Ms. Buppert's requirements for practice in Ohio and actual law.

    Overall, I highly recommend this book to both NP students and clinicians. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This book is the quintessential textbook for midwives.
    As Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Nurse-Midwifery (JNM), the official publication of the American College of Nurse-Midwives, I would like to share my own unequivocal 5-star rating of this textbook for midwives as well as some excerpted comments taken from the excellent review it received in the March/April 1997 issue of JNM. Here's what Judith Carveth Trexler, CNM, PhD, the reviewer, had to say: "Midwives have long awaited the third edition of this classic reference. Its expansion in size and scope make it the definitive text for midwives and one that clearly serves as a primary reference for the profession .... Although midwives remain the primary audience for this book, it also serves as an excellent resource for medical students, nurses (particularly those in advanced practice), physician assistants, and other health professionals who find themselves in need of a comprehensive text that applies the physiologic and psychosocial dimensions of women's and infant health to safe, client-centered clinical management."

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must read
    I have always found Varney to be useful and easy to read, especially in comparison to Speroff or Gabbe. I think that this book was never intended to be the definitive text on home birth. If a midwife's interest lies in homebirth, seek out books that cater to that option. I found the skills sections especially helpful. It isn't Varney's job to unite midwives, her primary job is to educate. You can not teach the spirit of midwife through a book, that's where mentoring comes into play. This is certainly a must have for all practicing midwives, regardless of educational background.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Technically accurate, boring read
    I am impressed by Varney's vast knowledge of hospital procedures as they relate to midwifery care. However, I found this to be "textbook" as a very boring read. Her information did not really cover the practice outside the hospital setting as thoroughly as would be needed for someone praticing in that setting. Her information would be most appreciated by the CNM and the L&D nurse - a great resource for them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Midwifery Bible
    I have come to rely on this book time and time again. No nurse midwife should be without a copy of this book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars This is a good reference book, but not the best for homebirt
    This book is a good reference book, but not the best one for homebirth midwives. Myle's, and Anne' Frye's books I have found to be more applicable in my practice. To the above person that thinks that Circumsision should not be addresses, I could not disagree more. Circumsision is a subject that should be addressed prenatally, and Since midwives are supposed to provide basic Post-partum care to the mother and baby during the first six weeks It is essentual that midwives and parents are educated about the issue antapartum ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book!
    This book was required my first semester of nursing school and I think it was very well thought out and written. I especially loved the tables used throughout the book to help in studying for exams. I hope my school continues to have it on their required book list.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Text for first year nursing students
    This was the textbook that I used for my first year in nursing school. It gives complete instructions with pictures and rationale's. It has wonderful little tables that teach you everything from patient teaching to signs and symptoms of diseases. I would highly recommended this book to any nursing student.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Text - Highly Recommend It
    The Best Fundamentals of Nursing Text I have seen. Covers every concept with rationale's. Great photographs with complete descriptions. The companion book is a great asset to accompany the text while in the field. Just everything that the Nursing Student needs to know. I am very pleased with text and would highly recommend it to everyone!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This book is very thorough!
    Kozier and Erb, as my first year nursing classmates and I lovingly refer to it as, is the best thing that every happened to nursing students.

    This books covers all topics that a first year nursing student could dream of needing. Each procedure is listed in a procedure box with step-by-step instructions including preperation and rationale.

    The book also includes model care plans for common diseases/conditions. Boxes highlight assessment findings, critical thinking, and nursing diagnoses.

    I can't say enough good things about this book! Let me put it this way, if my house were on fire, Kozier and Erb would be the first book I throw out the window!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best damn nursing fundamentals book ever made!
    This is the best damn first-year nursing book in the world. It doesn't get any better than this! This is all you need to read and study to get that 'A' and to become a competent first-year nursing student. ... Read more

    I am closing the end of my second semester and I could not have been so successful without this book. I absolutely love it. It is set up in and easy to read font and categorized by body system. Great way to learn!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Review Book
    I just passed my nclex exam on my first try with minimum of 75 questions--thanks to this book-- Saunders Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN. I looked around many books and also spent money on some books, but I finally selected this book. This book has everything what one need to pass the exam. One of the greatest feature of this book I loved is "clarification of the contents".It makes you to understand the concept just like a teacher. You can never pass the nclex unless you have understanding of the subject matter and this book helped me in that.I wished I had bought this book in the beginning of my nursing education.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My Saving Grace!
    This book is great!!
    First semester, I sailed through nursing and rarely opened my textbooks.This semester - different story.You gotta study.

    I (along with many other classmates) failed the first two tests this semester.So we all ran out and bought different versions of the NCLEX-RN study guides.WITHOUT A DOUBT Saunder's is the best!!I did 20 points better on the third test after just one good study group session with this book.Like others have said, you won't get throught this book in a day.Much of the content we haven't yet covered in lecture, but I know it's coming and I feel I'll have a "heads-up" when it does.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top notch!
    Without a doubt this book is a must for nursing students or those preparing to take the NCLEX. I have used it tirelessly to study for tests through nursing school and it has proven invaluable. I like that the book is split up into sections by topic. Not all NCLEX books are designed this way. I also like that at the beginning of each chapter there is an outline defining all the necessary information needed to critically think through questions. It's like having all your years of nursing school compiled into one book! Following each topic summary there are NCLEX type questions with answers that follow at the end of the chapter. Answers contain rationale as to why the given answer is the correct one. Probably most helpful are the test taking strategies. For anyone who has taken a standardized test such as the SAT or GRE you know it's all about knowing how to take the test...knowledge is secondary. FInally, the CD that comes with the book is great. In addition to the questions printed in the book, it gives you about 50 more questions per section to answer. Bottom line...get this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. Well worth the money.
    I got this book during my first semester of nursing school and it has been invaluable in helping me to pass my classes and master the material. There is a ton of information in this text, so don't expect to just sit down and read it in a couple of days. I think that the majority of people would benefit most from this book by using it as they progress through school rather than trying to review it before taking the NCLEX. The CD is great and has tons of questions. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Multiple inaccurate answers
    This study guide definitely needed more attention before it was published. I also have the 5th edition study guide and there are many mistakes that appear to be a lack of proofreading before publishing this newer edition. Many incongruencies here. I would recommend the 5th edition if you want to be certain of the tool you are using.

    1-0 out of 5 stars This Study Guide Has Incorrect Answers!!!
    I have found many errors in this study guide. I thought I was crazy at first, then the rest of the nursing class had the same concern. The errors are in the answer section, it will give you the wrong letter for the multiple choice answer and the correct rationale. I have contacted the publisher and received no response. Nursing School is hard enough, don't add to it with a very frustrating study guide with the wrong answers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!
    An excellent text for Med/Surg nursing course. One you will want to keep for future reference. Indispensible!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A practical and well-rounded guidebook for Home Health Care
    This book I've subtitled "holding the bag" -- it is basically a text book for nurses, telling them how to deal with the patient after the doctor has left the room. It includes how to live with a diagnosis, a disease, and deal with the side-effects of a cure. It not only provides precise medical information, but includes psychological and 'daily-life' information as well. As it is designed for nurses, the vocabulary is technical, and the illustrations are graphic; if you really want to understand what the doctors just told you, this is the place to go. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Mercedes of Undergraduate A&P Books
    I used this book as a student, and refer to it frequently as a reference. This 1000 + page text explains the structure and function of the complicated, detailed human body in a logical, easy to understand manner. Everything about this book is user friendly including the presentation order, the writing, and the graphics. In each chapter, Marieb presents the big picture before zeroing in on the details. For the body's systems, (digestive, endocrine, respiratory, etc.) Marieb overviews the system, and then explains the gross and fine anatomy and associated physiology.

    Here are a few of the many features I find impressive: * Graphics: Very impressive photographs and illustrations. The electron micrographs are spectacular. * Tables and charts - These greatly simplify the learning of complex concepts. For example, in the immune system chapter, there's a good table explaining the first and second lines of defense. * Medical applications - Common diseases are overviewed in the appropriate chapter, for example epilepsy is discussed in the neural integration chapter. There are occasional basic pharmacology and sports applications, such as diuretics and blood doping, respectively. * Making connections feature - Marieb shows how the system being studied relates to the other systems in the body.

    This is an absolutely state of the art A&P book, and each edition is better than the last. It's expensive, but you get a lot for your money. It may be too detailed for some, who would be better served by her "Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology" text. If you're an A&P student, I recommended you use her workbook as well. I've found that working through the exercises really helps this information stick.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great A&P book, written in friendly style
    Elain Marieb presents a really wonderful anatomy and physiology text. It provides a colorful feast of pictures and charts for the visual learner without skimping on the important details in the text. Marieb's writing style is friendly, informal and descriptive. Her writing can get quite theoretical at times but she always comes back to earth with a common example.

    This book is best suited for health sciences students (medicine, nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy etc.) as the book is littered with clinical applications. However students taking A&P at high school and undergrad level are well catered for. The book works systematically, from basic biochemistry to the organ systems and system interactions. Genetics and inheritance is also covered briefly.

    What else is on offer? A large glossary (invaluable to an A&P text!)and a prefix/suffix table. There are chapter summaries and test quizzes. Some may enjoy the CD ROM computer interaction aspects, there's also access to Elain's internet site for A&P students.

    Some of the material gets quite tough as the book progresses, but with re-reading and reference to other texts, students should quickly get a handle on the material. I previously owned a copy of the condensed "Essentials of human A&P" and traded it in for the full edition. I don't recommend students get the condensed version unless they are confining their A&P study to high school or 100 level college study.

    In conclusion, this is good first textbook and greatly aids in one's course of study. Marieb takes the unimaginable complexity of the human body and presents it in a fun, relatively easy-to-read, lively text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for A and P students, must buy
    I used this book for both my Anatomy and Physiology class in undergrad. I found this book to be pretty easy to understand. Of course, at first it is overwhelming to know how much you have to remember for the test. At least, writing style of this book made A and P easier to learn. The material is presented in organized fashion. However, if you really want to know the type of questions asked on college Anatomy and Physiology Exams get the following which is on amazon: Anatomy and Physiology Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations Volume 1(ISBN: 0971999619) and Volume 2 (ISBN: 0971999627). These two helped me to get A's on my exams. The textbook and the two study guides are well worth the money since they helped me to pass with high grades the first time. I was recommened the study guides from my cousin who used them for his A and P class and found them to be great for test preparation. I give each book 5 stars.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Yes, but...
    This book is an outstanding achievement for a single author, and I have learned a great deal from it. I like the graphics, the layout, and the wealth of information. However, I do find many paragraphs and passages in this book difficult to follow, usually because crucial details are missing. See, for example the explanations of ossification (pages 181-183) and the countercurrent mechanism in the kidneys (pages 1022-1026). It took me less time to digest a whole book on the immune system than the corresponding chapter in this book (chapter 22).

    There is a web site associated with the book, which gives the student an opportunity to ask questions. I submitted a couple of simple questions several weeks ago, but have yet to receive a reply.

    Unfortunately, I don't know of any A & P book at this level that would be better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook and a must buy
    The author of this book is an excellent writer. She makes learning anatomy and physiology easier. This book is divided into so many topics like skeletal system, nervous system, circulatory system. This book helped me as a undergraduate A and P student.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For the math challenged...
    I bought this book for a math for nurses class. I took the class because even after all the math classes I've taken, math is still a struggle for me and this was a last effort before I start nursing school. THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL! For the first time ever, "I get it." I feel totally comfortable with calculations now. The book gives you several different methods to solving and you can pick the one that works best for you. It's easy to read and has great examples. 5 stars!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
    I would STRONGLY recomend this book to anyone entering the nursing and/or paramedicine field(s). I used this text during a recent course in college and found there was no need for an instructor! Extremely easy to understand with plenty of examples! The text comes with a cd, although I never used it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dosage Calculations 6th edition
    This book is an excellent tool for learning to convert dosage calculations. Whether you are a beginner or wanting to brush up on your existing skills, the exercises contained in the book gradually become more difficult allowing you to skip the easier questions if necessary and jump straight to the more advanced problems. There are plenty of review problems to work out that ensure you are knowledgable of the material before you move on to the next chapter. There are clear, easy to follow instructions on various methods of calculating dosages so that you may choose the method that works best for you. There are word problems that portray actual scenarios that might be encountered in your career, rather than just hypothetical ideas. The book contains exellent photographs of actual medicine labels and medical equipment to familiarize you with what you will encounter. Each piece of information on the medicine label is defined for you in this book and it shows you samples of where to look and recognize this important information. The accompanying CD ROM is easy to follow and is an exellent study partner to the book. The initial introduction/test on the CD ROM will spot your areas of weakness and show you where you need to focus your attention. The directions are clear and to-the-point. You won't find a better book to learn dosage calculations anywhere. This book is simply the best and an asset to anyone's personal medical library. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pathophysiology Made Clear
    This is an outstanding textbook of the subject of pathophysiology. This can be, and is, a difficult subject to grasp the concepts of but this book makes it easier to learn. Gone are the days of boring pictures that don't really help the learning process. There is a good combination of artwork and photographs to illustrate what the text is saying. I am a self-taught student in this field and this book has helped me gain a good understanding of the topic.

    The chapters all begin relatively basic but move into the areas of in depth knowledge. There are a number of charts and graphs that basically sum up what a portion of a chapter is talking about. It is interesting how this book can be used as a resource text and as an initial learning tool. Whether this book is being used for self study or for a course it is important for the student to have a foundation in anatomy and physiology so they can understand the content better.

    I really like how this book is very applicable to those who provide emergency medical care. I highly recommend this book to those who are new to the subject of pathophysiology because if its ease to use, its quality and quantity of content. I have benefitted a great deal from this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Lifelong Investment
    McCance and Huether's Pathophysiology book is a lifelong investment. I bought it for a pathophys. class and continue to use it long after the class is over. It is thorough and easy to understand. Great illustrations and diagrams. I would recommend it to anyone in the healthcare field.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    I have been using the book and the information is easy to understand and is well organized. The pictures are expecially helpful and make the material easier to study. The anatomy and physiology chapters also provide a good review. This is a book I plan to keep and use for a reference.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great book easy to understand
    I think the first reviewer must of read a different book. This is an excellent book, easy to read and the illustrations are superb. I highly recommend this book for people who want an upto date text.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Pathophysiology
    I have been using this textbook for about 2 months and find it to be one of the poorest written books that I have come across. The authors fail to realize that the book is written for students and often introduce uncommon terms that are either never defined or defined several pages later. With that being said, it doesn't help that the book doesn't have a glossary.

    I know that your purchase options may be limited because the college you are attending requires that you use this book. However, if you must purchase it, also purchase another Patho book to explain what this book is trying to say. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Exhaustive (Good) & Exhausting (Not-so-good)
    I'm a recent graduate of a Registered Nursing program in which we used this textbook as our primary resource for Med-Surg information. I had a strong love/hate relationship with this textbook and I believe with a few revisions, it could be a truly outstanding piece of work.

    First, THE GOOD: It is unarguably EXHAUSTIVE in the depth of information presented, thus it makes an excellent reference material. The explanations of diseases, disorders, treatments, and techniques are clear and concise, albeit very dense. Don't expect to be able to skim anything here - absolutely every word seems necessary, and no space is wasted. One can gain a great deal of confidence when one has absolute confidence in the validity of their textbook. Brunner & Suddarths projects that kind of reliability.

    THE BAD: Such copious amounts of information require precise and meticulous organization, which Brunner & Suddarth's is lacking. Though it does not take away from the validity of the information, you might have some difficulty finding what you're looking for. More than once I noticed a disease or disorder's definition out of chronological order in the chapter, located well after the text had referred to it several times. (I was often feeling quite lost and stupid when the book would mention something I'd never seen before, only to define it 30 pages later. Once I discovered that pattern, I knew to dig for definitions before continuing my studies.) The index often seems incomplete, as I often found myself wandering for a passage I had been studying earlier, searching until I stumbled on the passcode-type keyword. Sometimes, there is no cross-reference in the index at all.

    If you're a nursing student (first of all, GOOD LUCK! It's worth the trials!) or a RN who is looking for a great reference material for your profession, this textbook comes recommended. For most effective study, use it more like an encyclopedia than a standard text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Smeltzer & Bare
    I have really become very close to this book. The text is presented in a manner which makes it easily understandable. The content goes into ellaborate depth, leaving no unanswered questions. Well Done!

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great textbook for beginning nursing.
    "This book is worded in a such a manner that even those who are just beginning their nursing careers can understand the concepts.

    Best book on the subject, goes hand-in-hand with Guyton's book. Common pathologies of each system or organ is described sometimes with nice colored pictures. Explanations are very simple and easy to understand. Each system is first explained in terms of structure and physiology and than followings chapters in that section takes on pathologies of the system or its components, number of chapters depending on the system complexity. It is a perfect book for pathology or parallel book with physiology to understand physiology with its applications.

    3-0 out of 5 stars It's not so bad if you know what you're getting into.
    I'm glad that you've come. It shows that you believe in looking ahead and being prepared. A little bit of that action would have saved General Custer and his men a whole lotta' headache. With a bit of luck, reading this review will do the same for you. Hopefully (because you'll be ready for what's coming), by the time you finish this book you won't want to put a bullet through your head and forcibly remove your own scalp (in that order). My initial reaction to the book wasn't as bad as it might be for others (I have a high tolerance for pain and boredom), however I would like to do my best to prevent any Dubliners-induced tragedies. I will admit, when I first read this book I did not enjoy it at all. I don't know about you folks, but I enjoy a book where at least some of the characters have at least one redeeming quality. You're hard up to find so sweet a gem in this anthology. From open to close the reader is bombarded with every class of loser imaginable. If it's not some gutless nobody without the heart to even attempt to go after his dreams, it's a drunk who beats his children. Of course there was that one part where Ransom got into a fistfight with Satan-oh, wait. That was from a book I enjoyed (C.S. Lewis's Perelandra-check it out). Let's not get confused about this. Saying that I did not enjoy the book does not imply that I do not like it. Often in life, things look entirely different in retrospect. Dubliners is one of those things. James Joyce wrote this book at about the time he expatriated. There have to be some pretty powerful feelings behind a decision to leave one's own country. In this book you get a glimpse of what he saw, the things that he dealt with everyday. You see the world that he put up with, and you see it through his eyes. In that regard, this is one of the most powerful pieces produced in recent times. Nevertheless, I write book reviews with people like my dad in mind. If it gets too real or hits too close to home, he won't take it. You can visualize it like this: Quigley Down Under = Good; Dingoes Ate My Baby = Bad. If he doesn't get a huge kick out of it, he will have nothing to do with it. So, if you're looking for huge explosions, karate chops, or campfire flatulence, this is not the book for you. On the other hand, if you like 'em slow, powerful, subtle, and poignant (and moderately depressing-cough, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, cough) Dubliners is your sack of oats, Mr. Ed. I find myself caught in the middle of the two types: which means that if it can blow up and move me at the same time, I'm sold-kinda' like a Tchaikovsky finale. The book is classic-quality literature; I won't deny that. I'm just saying that it's not for everyone. It's definitely not my dad's cup of tea (technically, nothing is his 'cup of tea.' He won't touch the stuff. He says it makes him gassy-but I digress).

    5-0 out of 5 stars disease at it's best
    As a graduating student in Homoeopathic medicine this is without a doubt the best general book I have read so far in this field. It uses a great variation of diagrams, charts, pictures and text, thus allowing for differing styles of absorption. It's subjct headings are broken into logical chapters and the recent addition of chapters for infant and elderly pathology is a fine improvement. The text is friendly and well written but remains professional. It also come with an A drive disk carrying a basic exam based round the books content. This is the first book I would recommend to students starting in this field.

    Every non-clinician in my medical device company has borrowed my now dog-eared copy of this book!

I was especially grateful for the thorough treatment of different types and levels of patient ECG monitoring and the sections on ventricular dysrhythmias. Easy to read, good mneumonic devices throughout--and frequent quizzes to self-test your understanding. Found one typo that was distressing, but easy enough to figure out when thought through. ...

    I can't tell you how invaluable this book is to me. It is safe to say I would be lost without it. I am in a bridge nursing program (RN-Masters) and have never worked in the medical feild before. Upper division textbooks are usually unhelpful because they contain no glossary at the back of the book. If your books are the same way this book is a necessity!

    Definitions are in plain english rather than crazy medical jargon so you rarely have to filp pages to define words in the definition of the original word in question. Even better are the multitude of pictures and diagrams that really solidify your understanding of select terms.

    There are some additional niceties specifially for nurses or nursing students. The appendix is filled with useful nursing guides such as:
    1. Nutrition and dietary refrence values
    2. Herbal medicines and their uses
    3. Normal refrence laboratory values
    4. Prefixes and suffixes
    5. Latin and Greek nomenclature
    6. Medical abbreviations
    7. Units of measurement
    8. Mini English-Spanish-French dictionary inclusive of specific medical phrases that may be used on the job
    9. Classification of poisons and poisoning, including pathology, symptoms, and medical treatment
    10. Addresses for health care resources and organizations, and nursing organizations
    11. NIC and NOC lists
    12. Nursing diagnosis
    13. Conceptual models and theories of nursing

    Those additional resources alone are worth the price of this book. You may be on a tight budget, but this is one book you cannot afford to be without.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensable for Professionals, Students, & Laypeople
    This dictionary has enough information to be useful for even the most learned medical professional and is still simple enough to use to be accessible to any mildly educated member of society. The dictionary is much more than simply a dictionary. Consisting of the vocabulary section and then some appendices, this 2270-page godsend is chockfull of definitions, examples, full-color diagrams, charts, diagnoses, and more. The preface to the dictionary actually lists all of the features of this cyclopedic dictionary, so I will regurgitate it here:
    1. Vocabulary
    2. Easy-to-Use Entry Format
    3. Alphabetization
    4. Eponyms (including biographies of those after whom things were named)
    5. Definitions
    6. Pronunciations
    7. Singular/Plural Forms
    8. Etymologies
    9. Abbreviations
    10. Encyclopedic Entries
    11. Illustrations
    12. Tables
    13. Adjective Forms of Words
    14. Cautionary Statements
    15. Synonyms (Very helpful!)
    16. Cross-References
    17. Appendices (Basically all the stuff that doesn't fit well within the dictionary, like medical terminology prefixes, suffixes, and combining forms as well as lots of various classification schemes)
    18. Nursing Diagnoses Appendix

    The book comes with a trial subscription to Taber's Online. This is my only complaint. Taber's Online does not appear to have received the thorough thought that the printed version did. I found that it was generally unhelpful, but you don't have to pay any extra for it, so I'm not complaining, just commenting. Overall, I would strongly recommend buying the Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary.

    I used this dictionary for many courses in the allied health discipline. I especially liked the way the dictionary categorized diseases by etiology, symptoms, course, and treatment. The appendices and illustrations were useful as well. One drawback to the dictionary is that some of the terms are hard to find; sometimes, one must flip back and forth while it leads you on a wild goose chase. As a whole, Taber's is an excellent pick for anyone choosing health as a clinical practice.
