When completed, this series will comprise sixteen volumes. Three volumes have now been issued, each a complete unit devoted to a single phase of the subject, such as general medicine, surgery and pediatrics. The object is to acquaint the student with the vocabulary of the subject treated and to present the easiest means of transposition into shorthand symbols. For this purpose, case histories are given in each volume, as well as a glossary containing pronunciations and definitions of words appearing in the Eighteenth Edition of the American Illustrated Dictionary by Dorland, and the Gregg shorthand outlines for them. The series should be most helpful to those for whom it is being prepared.
