Chapter Review Questions Glossary Index Reviews This text is written with terminology that an introductory class would understand. There is enough use of specific technical terms to teach but not overwhelm. While reading the text, I found myself thinking that is how I would have written or explained [concepts]. - Brian Razak, Fort Hays State University The material is well written, easy to understand, and written at an appropriate level. There is a lot of great information about becoming an athletic trainer, roles of an athletic trainer, and attributes of good athletic trainers. - Matthew Rothbard, Towson University I like the easy to read format. This would be a great text for the pre-Athletic Training student or for introductory courses in sports medicine. I like the practical aspects of the way this is written. - Bruce E.
