    This book is light and easy to carry in a backpack, laptop bag, etc. There are thousands of medical definitions within this paperback copy. The only con of this book is the size of the print. It is much smaller than I expected. This book has been quite helpful with my medical office courses. The product arrived quickly and in excellent shape.

    A great little dictionary. There are numerous entries related to veterinary medicine and/or zoology/insect-parasites, which are a little distracting, but the definitions are well-written, and concise in their relation / explanations. The print is small, and a lot of overlap makes for slower reading / research, but overall this is a 4-5 stars product. It is printed on newsprint-type paper, which might send some readers away (accounts for the price).

    I use this dictionary as a study guide and reference for medical coding. I owned previous editions of this dictionary so it was a no-brainer to go back to MW. Thank you for a useful item.

    I have a niece who’s studying for the RHDS exam from AHDI, and she’s had to study microbiology, immunology, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, pathophysiology, etc. When typing various medical reports, she sometimes encounters a word she doesn’t know. However, she does know what it seems as though the dictator is saying, and with that in mind, it’s usually not difficult for her to find the right word in this dictionary, which she then commits to memory.

    I glanced through the dictionary, and, unlike some of the other reviewers, neither my niece nor I found the print too small to read. Don’t get me wrong. If you need large print to be able to read something, this print is going to be too small. However, if you have normal eyesight, you should be able to read this just fine.

    There are many, many entries in this dictionary, which is more than 800 pages long. I recommend it for anyone working in a physician’s office or hospital, for coders, for transcriptionists, for pharmacists, for anyone who isn’t positive he or she knows every single word in the medical lexicon.

    I’m so glad I bought this dictionary for my niece, and so is she. She says she knows she’ll use it often.

    Especially for someone like me who worked at a Pharmaceutical Co as a Clinical Data Manager, used a book like this and was honest enough NOT to take their property even after I was laid off after 21yrs so my job could go overseas (nope, not bitter! lol). I like to brush up on my Medical Terminology especially as my health isn’t that great anymore. Got one for Mom too for same reasons & she can look up something quickly and put her mind at rest until she would like to research further. Print is small but that’s what paperbacks are like.

    What I enjoy most about this medical dictionary is that I can carry it with me on my Kindle Fire instead of a 992-page book. Also, I found that if I slowed down the text-to-speech to less than 1X, I could understand the pronunciation of most words on the page. The downside is that text-to-speech is not always useful for words broken into syllables. I think anyone that has a need for a medical dictionary and has access to a compatible Kindle product will find the dictionary useful.

    I will say that this dictionary is a great help with prerequisites to benefit you in the long run. I have used it in almost all of my general education courses such as Anatomy and Physiology, Psychology, and others. I HIGHLY SUGGEST this to all forms of medical study including nursing. Hopefully, Merriam-Webster comes out with a pharmacology dictionary!
