Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great guide for new Vet Tech students This book is a great introduction to veterinary terminology for the beginner. The world of veterinary terminology can be overwhelming to prospective students with little to no greek or latin background. This book breaks the subject down into manageable chunks - chapters are short and easy to digest - and concepts are explained simply and clearly. Perhaps the most valuable part sof this book are the "Test Me" sections at the end of each chapter as well as the activities that help cement the terms and concepts explained within. Readers are able to put their knowledge to the test immediately, and review any gap areas before moving on. Needless to say, these working sections act as excellent test and exam preparation, and are extremely useful for the new Veterinary Technician student. This book is indexed, and includes shortlists of clinical abbreviations. In addition to covering terminology, it also helps the reader to review basic anatomy and physiology and is a great supplement to textbooks in those subject areas. A great reference, and a must have for the new Vet Tech student. Listed as an optional textbook in my VT program, I would have been lost without it!
