Mosby's dictionary far exceeded my expectations for medical knowledge. Its pictures, charts, tables, and lab data are incredibly useful in getting better understanding of the diseases, conditions, procedures, and body structures that you are researching. Mosby's is not for the faint of heart, the numerous photographs, diagrams, and pictures are very graphic especially with some of the congenital anomalies and skin disorders. A lot of nurses that I went to school with (and I agree) feel that this was the better choice of reference because it prepares you for what you may encounter and many of us are visual learners (we have to see to understand). I really like how informative the definitions are and have found there are more listings here then in other dictionaries such as Tabors. We keep a reference Mosby on my floor and I also have one saved in my personal office. Its a valuable tool for anyone entering the medical profession or interested in anatomy or health.

Must have for any medical student.

I'm a nursing student, and I use this book all of the time. Keep it next to you when you study, there are going to be tons of words that you don't know in your studies. Don't be the student that knows the answer but doesn't know what it means.

Mosby's Dictionary

A very handy reference book for anyone in the medical profession. It allows you to find information quickly and answers basic questions about diagnoses, signs and symptoms and medical terms. It is written in clear and concise language. It has colorful and descriptive pictures. I wish I had this in nursing school years ago!! Recently, I've used it as an RN in Home Healthcare practice and as a coding/compliance auditor when reviewing documentation. Overall, it has saved me a lot of time and allowed me to look up details that I didn't know easily. I keep it with me as part of my essential books.

This is a very helpful reference book

I couldn't tell you how many times I have had to look up a term I didn't know and it wasn't in Webster's dictionary. Anyone in the mediacl field-Respiratory therapists, Physical Therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, Radiology technicians will find this book to be very valuable. It is written as clearly and simply as possible. Of course, everyone's favorite part is all the color photos and diagrams. It was worth every penny. This book would be great for any allied health students or graduates. It makes reading those difficult textbooks mcuh easier.

Best giude for general medical information

As a nursing student who is expected to write a 5-7 page paper in one night (including pathology, drugs, lab values, and 2 Nursing care plans, I highly recommend this book. What has taken me 3-4 hours has been cut in half with the use of this book. It lso has great pictures of many disease processes
