Summary

In this hands-on introductory text, scenario drills and realistic simulations help the reader gain confidence and develop marketable skills for a career in medical transcription. The modular, building-block approach reinforces basic concepts as the material progresses. A unique Error Analysis Chart points out common and recurring mistakes so readers can learn to avoid these errors. A motivating Production for Pay Summary sheet is linked to a grading grid, so net words of production are calculated to monetary value and students experience the real-world accountability of earning a pay check. The updated CD-ROM is easier to use and more closely tied to the book content, and it now contains the audio transcriptions that are included on the accompanying audio tapes. Instructor resources are available; please contact your Elsevier sales representative for details.
