What I especially apriciate with this book is it's pedagogical illustrations and a passage with "building-blocks of the medical language" wich has been a great help for me in understanding and memorizing medical terms.
During my studies I have compared my dictionary with many other medical dictonaries and have found that Stedman's remains my first choise by far!

- Numerous colored illustrations including ADAM Anatomical Art, new diagnostic plates e.g. imaging and clinical and microscopic plates.- Common medical abbreviations.- Highly organized vocabularies.- Highly organized entries and cross-references.- Special reference to medical eponyms.- Shows the difference between British and American spellings.- Pronunciation key.- Easy & simple Wordfinder.- Genus Finder.- A-Z vocabularies.- Origins of the medical words e.g. Latin, Greek etc. which attracts me for the most ! Learning the origins of the medical words can be a boon to learning medical language. It makes remembering medical terms easier.- Appendices including: Table of elements & their atomic weights, Comparative temperature scales, Temperature equivalents, Weights & measures, Symbols, Laboratory reference range values, Blood groups, Diagnosis related groups, Certified Regional Poison Control Centers, CDC Universal Precautions, AIDS - resources (By State), AIDS Hotlines (By State), and AIDS education & training centers (By region).- 27th Edition comes in 2098 pages, and was published by Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins company (great company by the way!), 2000.
I wish there could be Stedman's Dictionary on PDA handhelds (e.g. Palm) in the future.I strongly advise medical students and other health care workers to use this invaluable dictionary. 10/10
