I am confused.  Is this included in our tuition or do we have to purchase it separately?

If not included, is it worth purchasing?

We do not participate in the website that accompanies the Medical Language textbook, and we do not recommend students purchase access on their own separately.  When the site was previously free access, we found that students who used it often spent far too much of their study time on the exercises and games there, leaving them to either rush through their assignments or use up extensions to push deadlines back. 

Remember, everything in the course is completely open-book, so you don't need to memorize anything, which is what that site is geared toward.  It's a better use of your time to get through the terminology and A&P fairly quickly each week and spend the rest of the time going more carefully over the coding (or transcription, for MT students) material, where you'll be applying and reinforcing the terminology and A&P you've picked up.
