Pros and cons of Medical Prefixes & Suffixes app for iPhone and iPad

Medical Prefixes & Suffixes app good for

Its 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.
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 Im teaching.
such a help in my class. the old version was okay. this version is so much better. the app is so much prettier! i use the app to study while on the bus or in between classes. i emailed the developer about some missing terms and roots and he was responsive. he added my suggestions in this version. the quiz is helpful. i use the flashcards mostly. i also like that i can finally add more than 100 terms to my bookmarks.

Some bad moments

I like it but it only allows you to bookmark 100 and in Med Term that is not even close to what u need. You need a many hundreds! I dont like that I see the word and the answer at the same time as well.
Uh hello!? There are a heck of a lot more prefixes and suffixes then what is in this app. Get ya lyfe!
