Summary "By separating words into their components and recombining them to make new words, the reader learns how compound words are formed and becomes familiar with the meanings of prefixes, suffixes and roots. The anatomy exercises, case histories and medical notes consolidate the reader's understanding of how and why each medical term is used. Answers to all exercises and self-assessment tests are included."--Publisher information
