Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Every pharmacy student finds this book indispensable for two reasons. First, it's an excellent review for exam preparation. Second, with its super summary of key content, it works as an ideal companion to comprehensive pharmacy texts.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Deborah Harper Brown, PharmD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy)
Description: This book provides a good review of key concepts covered in pharmacy school curricula. The text contains detailed outlines of subject matter arranged in chapter format and organized into two main sections. The first 21 chapters provide review information from the basic pharmaceutical sciences, including medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, and pharmacology. The second section illustrates how material is applied to pharmacy practice, with an emphasis on pharmaceutical care.
Purpose: It is intended to serve as a review for the NAPLEX exam as well as reference.
Audience: The book targets a wide audience of users, including recent pharmacy graduates requiring a review for the NAPLEX examination, practicing pharmacists who desire a mechanism to stay abreast of current concepts, pharmacy college instructors and preceptors who want outlines of what can be incorporated in their courses, and individuals matriculating to pharmacy school who want to know what's ahead.
Features: A key feature is a series of study questions at the end of each chapter. Particularly helpful are explanations that accompany study question answers. Other useful components include tables and graphs that help organize related material and appendixes that provide information on brand-to-generic name conversion and medications that should be used with caution during pregnancy. One limitation of the text is that it does not contain lists of suggested readings at the end of each chapter. For individuals who desire to clarify concepts or read about a subject in more detail, the lack of suggested readings poses somewhat of a hindrance. However, if the reader is familiar with pharmacy literature, this limitation can be overcome.
Assessment: This review provides a good resource for those who wish to learn about or review contemporary concepts in pharmacy in an organized, concise format.
This study guide for the NAPLEX exam consists of 58 contributions that summarize key points in such subjects as drug dosage forms, immunology, drug metabolism and interactions, federal pharmacy law, over-the-counter agents, infectious diseases, mood disorders, and thyroid disease. The fourth edition is organized into two parts on pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacy practice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

    bad for pharmacy management review-good for general pharmaceutical science

    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.
