Overview

Medical Terminology Complete! takes a programmed approach to presenting the most current language of healthcare. Organized by body system, the text conveys the medical terms used in medical offices, hospitals and clinics, together with essential A&P information.

You'll get step-by-step guidance in building medical terms. Word Part Reminders show you how word parts combine to form a term, while Word Part Breakdowns identify word parts. Some exercises offer word-building practice, while others use medical reports to show how medical terms are used in practice.

The 4th Edition improves clinical training for students poised to a launch a healthcare career. New types of chapter-ending exercises, such as Define the Combining Form and Complete the Labels exercises, round out a comprehensive series of practice opportunities.

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.

With a Multi Pearson+ subscription plan, you can download up to 10 titles on the Pearson+ app from My list on each of your authorized devices every month.
