This Medical Dictionary is like a Nursing Bible! I purchased one when I was going back for my RN and I use it outside of the classroomas well. It is my #1 recommended reference guide. I encouraged my sister to buy one when she went to LPN school, and she can't live without hers either.

    I used this as a reference when I was going through RN school, and I use it outside of school as well. It is the BEST ongoing reference I have ever had throughout my 11 years as an LPN and my 13 years in the medical field! My sister is an LPN also, and she loves her Taber's Dictionary. We refer to it as the Nursing Bible.

    Taber's can't be beat when you need basic information. I have had one for years and wouldn't want to do without one.

    What did nurses use for a quick reference before Tabers?! I wouldn't be without one! It is the #1 Medical dictionary for me!

    I think it is the best medical dictionary on the market. I use mine all the time.

    This product is very useful to me. I have the Taber's in my Palm TX and I carry it whenever I go.

    Nobody can "know it all;" this is one of those references that does, that everybody should have.

    Great nursing resource to have within arms reach. I love the fact that there is also an app for the Iphone.

    This is what they had Nursing Students buy in the bookstore and to this day I still have it. I have an updated version @ the moment you never know if you need the book, for spelling or for just the meaning of the word(s),it is just so handy to have!
