random question... but any recommendations on a good medical dictionary? thanks.
I really like the Mosby's Medical Dictionary. There are a few different versions. I have the truncated pictures version and have found everything I ever wanted to know so far.
Also, if you want more in depth information on diseases/treatment, I recommend the Lange books.
I bought the "Compact American Medical Dictionary" by the people that wrote the American Heritage Dictionaries. It seemed to do the trick for me when I took parasitology and anatomy as an undergrad. Unlike what the name says, it's the size of a normal paperback book. It also hs figures in the back.
Join the AMA and you get the Stedman's Concise for free. Some medical schools will pay your AMA membership dues.
Interesting and cool that some schools will pay...but the AMA doesn't represent doctors so well any more. Aren't less than 30% of doctors in the AMA?
Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) puts one out that is pretty tight. It's got color pics, lab norms, etc.
