    Great Book For Fluent Speakers, July 16, 2008

    I bought this book a few years ago and really like it a lot. I think the low rating it received is a little unfair since the people rating it went low just because they didn’t know it is a book for people who speak pretty fluent Spanish.

    It’s laid out nicely based mostly on specialties and areas of the hospital. It has an excellent and wide terminology section in the back. It also presents the terminology and vocabulary in a practical, easy to remember manner by using realistic dialog between the provider/patient.

    I recommend this book to anyone who is pretty fluent in Spanish already. It’s defiantly not a book to learn basic Spanish with.

    This text was used for a course at a community college in Texas. Having lived on the border (and Spanish being my 3rd language), I respectfully disagree with anyone who says this book/CD is “worthless.” I took the course to be able to communicate better as both a licensed massage therapist and certified pharmacy technician. My teacher was super, and I look forward to another class with her. The twenty lessons, six appendices, and both Spanish-English and English-Spanish vocabulary lists, cover almost every medical situation one can imagine, from emergency room to diabetic dietary consult. Por favor,¡estudie más!

    Basic- but too repetitive for more advanced, December 22, 2011

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    The vocabulary is appropriate, but the exercises are a bit mundane and simply regurgitation of the initial readings at the beginning of each chapter. I think it may be good if you are a clinician looking for more basic Spanish, but if you have any background in Spanish, I think it could be a bit too simple for you…. I used this for the “advanced” medical Spanish course at the hospital I work at, and it did need to be supplemented with other handouts, grammar rules, etc.
