Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This pharmacology review is one of nine books on basic science topics in Elsevier's Integrated Review series designed to help students prepare for USMLE Step 1.
Purpose: This will facilitate students' efforts to integrate pharmacology with the other basic sciences as they progress through the knowledge and problem-solving components of their medical curriculum en route to readiness for USMLE Step 1 and clinical rotations. This book meets that goal.
Audience: Medical students who need to master an understanding of medical pharmacology in preparation for certification exams and clinical rotations are the intended audience.
Features: Covering all of the conventional topics covered in pharmacology textbooks, this book starts with chapters on the principles of pharmacology and toxicology, before moving on to a group of chapters dealing with infectious diseases, cancer, and immunopharmacology and chapters on the drugs in the systems traditionally covered in the basic science portion of the medical curriculum. The book ends with 12 case studies that demonstrate the principles discussed in the chapters that would be appropriate for the small group or problem-based discussions found in most medical curricula. Each chapter starts with a content box and ends with a top five list and includes appropriate, well-designed multicolored figures, high-yield summary tables, and integrated boxes highlighting concepts discussed in the other eight books in this series.
Assessment: Since pharmacology is a rapidly changing field, this second edition not only provides information on new drugs, it also relies on the experience of the authors to present the material in a very efficient way for students to master pharmacology and integrate the material with concepts in the other basic sciences.
From the Publisher

"This is an excellent pharmacology textbook which is very readable and well-illustrated. It is both clear and concise and would be helpful for any student who likes pharmacology which is explained in as learnable a way as possible. The 'integrated' idea could perhaps have been expanded upon but, nevertheless, it remains an excellent pharmacology text and one which I would recommend to my fellow colleagues."
