Medical Terminology (spelling + Word Parts + Definitions)

67 Questions  I  By Fearlessleader on April 23, 2009
Some questions will give you a prefix, suffix or combining form. Other questions will be the definition and you will need to select the appropriate prefix, suffix or combining form. Then there are many that are only a single word which is misspelled and you will need to spell it correctly. *EDITED* - Needed to edit due to not having the audios available for the audio questions any longer. Those questions that were audio related have been deleted and the quiz stats have been reset to zero as of May 23, 2011.

Quiz Comments (5)
82 out of 100-not bad for not reviewing for several months. Some of them were educated guesses based on the fact that I knew what the wrong answers meant. some of my wrong answers were second guessing myself on spelling and some were due to the fact that I didn't mark all the multiple answers. Over all I think I did quite well.
Added in more definitions and terminology choices. I might go back in and redo my attempts at spelling the ones that now have audio options to try and make that a bit less confusing.
I've added audio bits to the spelling words now. Only sucky thing is that it's a playlist of all the words and you have to get to the one that's being spelled for that question. It's not the greatest, but it's better than it was with my horrible attempts at misspelling on purpose LOL =)
I think I have a solution to that problem .. lemme see what I can do!! =)
That sucked so bad I just quite halfway through lol. I am so much better and figuring this crap out when I am hearing it!
