5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"The authors have designed this book to foster the mastery of pharmacology for students who have to pass course, module, or certification examinations....This is one of the best review books in pharmacology. The latest version is far superior, both in content and presentation, to previous versions. I give it my highest recommendation."--Doody's Review Service



From the authors of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, the leading pharmacology textbook, here is the newest edition of the best review book available for medical pharmacology course exams and board examinations. This skill-building guide comes with over 1000 review questions and answers –- far more than most other pharmacology reviews –- and a chapter-based approach that facilitates use with course notes or larger texts.



Features:



  • A new full-color presentation

  • Organized to reflect course syllabi, focusing on the clinical use and pharmacology of drug categories, rather than individual drugs

  • Two complete practice exams

  • A valuable appendix of test-taking strategies

  • Chapters that include valuable learning aids such as:

    --Short discussion of the major concepts that underlie basic principles or drug groups

    --Explanatory figures and tables

    --Review questions followed by answers and explanations

    --Drug Trees in drug-oriented chapters that visually organize drug groups

    --A list of high-yield terms and definitions you need to know

  • Skill Keeper questions that prompt you to review previous material to understand links between related topics

  • A checklist of tasks you should be able to do, once you have finished the chapter

  • Summary Tables that list the important drugs and include key information about their mechanisms of action, effects, clinical uses, pharmacokinetics, drug interactions, and toxicities

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This board review book is by the same editors of the leading pharmacology textbook, Basic and Clinical Pharmacology, 11th edition (McGraw-Hill, 2009), used in the education of students in medicine and other healthcare professions who have to master the subject of pharmacology.
Purpose: The authors have designed this book to foster the mastery of pharmacology for students who have to pass course, module, or certification examinations. It is one of the best.
Audience: This book is of value to anyone who has to master pharmacology, including students of medicine, pharmacy, nursing, allied health, and graduate programs. Likewise, both residents and practitioners will find this an ideal book for the review of pharmacology.
Features: This review follows, chapter by chapter, the organization of the textbook. Each chapter has a short discussion of the major concepts that underlie the basic principles of drugs covered in that chapter. The tables and figures have been well selected to emphasize what students need to know to pass examinations. The new full-color presentation is a marked improvement. Drug trees in the drug-oriented chapters and high-yield terms and definitions will help students focus on the most important information needed to master pharmacology on examinations. "Skill Keeper" questions prompt students to integrate important material between chapters. Summary tables at the end of each chapter focus on key drug information with respect to mechanism of action, clinical uses, pharmacokinetics, drug interactions, and adverse effects. Chapters conclude with ample review questions followed by answers and explanations. Two 120-question practice exams are included at the end of the book. Not all questions are in the current USMLE format, but all are useful in aiding in the understanding of pharmacology. Overall there are more than 1,000 review questions in the book. In some ways, this version approaches a text rather than a mere review..
Assessment: This is one of the best review books in pharmacology. The latest version is far superior, both in content and presentation, to previous versions. I give it my highest recommendation.
