You won't find any hunky surgeons roaming this ER, but the engrossing Emergency Room CD-ROM will give you a crash-cart course in basic medical lingo and procedures. You begin as a medical student at Legacy Hospital and try to work your way up to chief of staff. You get to examine, diagnose and treat the patients. With more than 400 ailments, from stab wounds to nosebleeds, you should have your hands full. Emergency Room is also stocked with useful tips on accident prevention—but, alas, no advice on how to avoid a malpractice suit. (CD-ROM for PC, $69.95, IBM Multimedia Studio)
