Admittedly, this is my first experience with a medical language book, so my intent here is not to compare this book with others.
I have now listened to 6 of the 19 chapters. The narration is excellent and very clear. In each chapter, there are a series of stages with which the words and their meanings are presented. Each important word is mentioned again in each stage, but from a different perspective. In this process, the body systems involved are explained so that the listener knows how all the components relate; And near the end, there are a couple of stages where the listener can test his or her memory of the important words and their meanings. The staged approach seems effective at consolidating the knowledge, particularly with how quickly new words, meanings, and systems are introduced in the first couple of stages of each chapter.
Now, I do not expect that I will remember all the words after just one listening, being that I have no prior (comprehensive) experience or text to go along with the audio, but my primary goal of at least gaining knowledge of the foreign word-forms (in Latin, Greek, et cetera) seems to be ossifying. Also, the inherent introduction to the various body systems and how they work is a very welcome addition to the language itself (at least for me).
Overall, I have enjoyed the listen so far, and I definitely recommend this audio-book to any audio-goers wanting a thorough, quality introduction to medical terminology.
