Overview

The Dosage Calculations text has set the standard in teaching dosage calculation and now, for the first time, a ratio and proportion method is available. It incorporates the strengths of the original, clear writing style, extensive math review, beginning to advanced concepts presented in manageable segments, and hundreds of practice problems. This edition includes actual drug labels, equipment photos, and illustrations to help students learn. The ratio and proportion edition is a comprehensive learning system that includes an interactive CD-ROM. The CD-ROM encourages self-paced learning in a low anxiety environment that reinforces the classroom material.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The writing style is straightforward, clear, and concise. Explanations are easy to follow—a student could use this text as self-study. Readability of the chapters is very good - easy to follow from one concept to the next. The reading level is appropriate for my students. The coverage is comprehensive and the organization is very effective. I have used Pickar's text for over 10 years and find the order very effective."

"Great pictures of real drug labels and actual syringes. Well organized from basic to more advanced. I think it (the book) is very good and will recommend to my students."

"I found the use of Math Tip, Quick Review, Rule, Remember, Caution, and Critical Thinking Skills to be extremely beneficial. They reinforce the content as well as learning style of the text. I feel my student could greatly benefit from these areas. The use of reasoning skills assist the student to understand material. The lay out of the content, ERROR, Possible Scenario, Potential Outcome, and Prevention are areas I have not seen express in this way in other texts. This will assist the individual student in understanding the potential outcomes of their actions with every chapter."

    more from this reviewer

    Required text for my nursing program. I used it to review for a challenge

    exam. The ratio-proportion approach is a solid one because it provides the tools to solve any dosage calculation rather than an approach that teaches a rule for every type of problem. The examples are based on clinical situations and include using syringes, dosage cups, IV drips etc. There are plenty of practice problems with solutions in the back of the text. I think it's a solid text, especially for those familiar with the concepts of ration/proportion/unit cancellation. It is a bit pricey for a paperback that arrived with the wimpy cover already curling but textbooks aren't made the way they used to be.
