this books is a good source for pharmacology, general science (except for chemistry), federal law. However, the management and economic part of this book is so weak that you need to have another book in order to cover this part that is so important in the practice of pharmacy.

Excellent book with nice quick reivew of different topics. The only downside is that some chapters do not have enought reivew questions.
