Volume 3 of the Chinese Medical Characters series presents both simplified and complex forms for 100 characters that are frequently encountered in materia medica study, providing an in-depth look at the most commonly used characters in the field of medicinal therapy. Significs and stroke counts, commonly used equivalents, character composition, explanation of meaning, and examples of character combinations are included. The stroke sequence showing how to write the character is presented, and space for students to practice writing the characters is provided. The appendix contains a systematic list of the characters presented in the text as well as all characters presented in Volumes One and Two of the series.
