Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rahmat M. Talukder, PhD, RPh (West Coast University School of Pharmacy)
Description: This study guide presents theoretical and practical aspects of common pharmaceutical dosage forms. Similar to other books in FASTtrack series, this one has been designed to help graduate pharmacists understand the complexity of pharmaceutical dosage form development, which will be helpful in their professional practice. The most notable features are the use of bulleted key points and tips in each chapter and multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter.
Purpose: The objective is to present pertinent scientific information succinctly so that the book can serve as a revision guide or as a study guide.
Audience: This is a handy tool for graduate pharmacists and can serve as a guide for candidates who are preparing for registration examinations. Undergraduate students will find it easy to read with some useful information on relevant topics. Professor David Jones is a well known educator/scientist in pharmaceutics.
Features: The book deals with the theoretical and practical aspects of various pharmaceutical dosage form design. In 8 chapters out of 10, fundamental principles of various dosage forms for different routes of administration are presented. For example, there are discussions on dosage forms for parenteral, nasal, oral, ocular, and rectal administrations. There are also brief discussions on commonly used recipients for developing those formulations. This is a well organized book that presents the topics in an easy to read style. Most chapters begin with a general description, followed by discussions on advantages and disadvantages of dosage forms administered through a particular route. This book covers various dosage forms, but the addition of separate chapters on preformulation and controlled release dosage forms will make it a well rounded one.
Assessment: Complex issues in pharmaceutical formulations are discussed at an appropriate level with sufficient illustrations making this an excellent review guide for pharmacists. Although undergraduates can also use this book, they should remember that it is not a replacement for a pharmaceutics textbook. Ansel's Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms and Drug Delivery Systems, 8th edition, Allen et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005) is an appropriate required text for undergraduates.
