If you plan to be ready to jump into your Fall allied health classes, or if you’re taking a Summer class where you’ve discovered your medical terminology knowledge isn’t quite up-to-speed, check out the Library’s Medical Terminology titles on the Anatomy & Physiology Subject Guide. Most are available in eBook format, while a few can be checked out from Course Reserve at the Library’s Circulation Desk.
One of my favorites is Henderson & Dorsey’s 2019 edition of Medical Terminology for Dummies. The for Dummies series is known for their ability to provide understandable text for beginners or those who need review.
Logon to read (and maybe even download) eBooks with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.
If you’re studying for Anatomy & Physiology (A&P), health professions, or exercise science classes, or if you just want to deepen your understanding of the human body, take a look at this 3-D Anatomy Quiz, recommended by HON Health on the Net. The free online quizzes – at four levels of difficulty – are surprisingly addicting to attempt.
