Quick Medical Terminology, is a self-paced learning approach designed to ease you into the language of medicine that separates the layperson from the professional. The programmed learning format requires active participation through reading, writing, answering questions, labelling, repetition, and providing immediate feedback. This format will help you to correctly decipher new terms by identifying and then practicing different word parts.
BCM101 – Chemistry / Biochemistry
Kenneth Raymond’s General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry offers a concise, manageable, highly effective text with an integrated Table of Contents. The text presents interrelated topics from general, organic, and biochemistry in a highly integrated approach which reduces excess review, and enables students to explore biochemical topics earlier in the course. The result is a briefer, more focused, and more engaging text. Raymond takes a much-applied approach, filled with real-life examples that effectively connect chemistry to future careers in health-related fields. Chapter-opening vignettes focus on the link between chemistry and everyday topics. Online videos and articles from ScienCentral connect the chemistry presented in the text to current events.
