Read, write, and speak medical terms in no time with Leonard’s Quick & Easy Medical Terminology, 8th Edition. Ideal for one-semester courses and self-study, this clear, concise text covers disorders, diagnosis, and treatment with a strong focus on anatomy for an integrated discussion of each body system. Small bits of information are presented then immediately tested for comprehension using a combination of programmed and traditional review questions. With new case studies, terms, and photos, plus help from the companion Evolve site, Quick & Easy Medical Terminology provides you with simple tools for good communication in the health care environment.

    • Brief explanations and a focus on basic word-building skills make this text perfect for shorter, one- or two-credit medical terminology courses or self-study.

    • Student Evolve resources include games; activities; flash cards; animations, pharmacology, CAM, and genetics appendices; audio terms, and mobile quizzes and flash cards that offer additional opportunities to quickly gauge strong and weak areas in a fun, interactive environment.
    • NEW! 14 additional case studies with exercises let you practice medical terminology in context.
    • NEW! Elsevier’s Adaptive Learning (EAL) updated to accompany the text and provide an engaging, interactive learning experience that transforms textbook information into lasting knowledge.
