As an instructor of Med Term, this is the best app that I suggest for students. This app is the only one that provides the combining vowel in the words which I stress as important to know. Each word root has its own combining vowel and knowing which goes with the word is paramount in properly identifying the suffixes vs. the word root. For example, calc(i), chol(e), perin(e) are different that than those with the most common combining vowel of (o). This is the only currently available app that provides the most accurate medical terminology references. I love it! I use it during class to quickly produce examples of word parts I'm teaching.

Not bad


It's helpful while I study for my med tests. I only gave it four stars because I would like to be able to put in the word and have the prefix and suffix come up for that word. Simple to use.


los dios de mio!

It's useful, but I'd like to be able to search by definition as well as by name. It helps with homework, but it is missing a few minor words. All I all, it's a useful app, and probably the best on the app store, but it could be a lot better.
