Reviews of the previous editions:

"...brilliant for revision and last minute cramming!"
Cambridge Medicine - Jan 2001

"...if you are looking for a book that covers frequently-used drugs, and provides you with all the basic information, then this book should be on your list, plus at £9.99 it won't break the bank either"
Barts and the London Chronicle/Autumn 2000

"...I would recommend this book and can envisage it useful both on the wards and as a revision tool for a long time to come."
Black Bag, Bristol Medical School Gazette/Freshers Ed 00

"This book has clearly excelled, as a quick reference learning tool - one that in my opinion was long overdue needed by clinical students and particularly house officers."
Guy's Gazette/May2000

"This is a good ward companion, should space permit, or a concise accompaniment to a more comprehensive pharmacology text. A good buy at under £10.00."
Student BMJ

"If you have the contents of this guide at your finger-tips you will be truly well-armed."
International Journal of Pharmacology & Therapeutics

"So whether you're revising for your finals pharmacology or you're just plain confused about the pharmacology you've done so far, this book is a great help."
Medics and Dentists Magazine

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"a dinky ward reference...pocket-sized reassurance for those with a shakey grasp of pharmacology."
-Sharp, May 2005

"The range of drugs included is appropriate for the target audience and the depth of material on offer is equally as well thought-out. [...] This is a very useful resource for medical students."
-Hospital Medicine, June 2005

"It summarises the key points for each medication and will make a useful revision aid or a user friendly reference on the wards. I think this would make a cheap, concise, usable text of clinical pharmacology for a clinical student."

-Black Bag, Bristol Medical Magazine Winter 2005.
