Overview

The bestselling USMLE study tool -- packed with everything you need to ace the exam on your first try





4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This is one of the better board review books in pharmacology and it closely follows the most widely used textbook for teaching pharmacology . . . This eighth edition is needed to keep pace with this rapidly growing discipline." -- Doody's Review Service





From the authors of the leading pharmacology textbook comes the newest edition of the best pharmacology review in the field. Ideal for medical pharmacology course review and USMLE Step 1 preparation, this skill-building guide comes with more than 1000 USMLE-type questions with answers -- nearly 3 times as many as any other pharmacology review!





Features:



• A concise yet thorough review of basic and clinical pharmacology, covering every must-know concept

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

• Two USMLE-style Practice Exams with 120 questions each



In each chapter, "Skill Keepers" sharpen your recall of key principles from earlier chapters

• A series of 15-20 USMLE-style questions in each chapter

• Key terms with definitions

• Strategies for improving test performance

• A detailed index and appendices allow you to look up drugs and side effects in an instant

• All chapters fully updated with the latest drug information

• Numerous figures and tables, such as those designed to delineate the differences between similar drugs

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This examination and board review book follows chapter-by-chapter the most widely used medical pharmacology textbook, Katzung's Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (McGraw-Hill, 2007).
Purpose: This book is designed to help students pass course and board certification examinations covering the content taught in a traditional pharmacology course.
Audience: This review is widely used by medical, pharmacy, nursing, and allied health students to facilitate their mastery of understanding drugs in preparation for course and board examinations. It is especially valuable for the USMLE Step 1 examination.
Features: Each chapter begins with a high-yield discussion of key concepts that underlie the basic principles of a drug group, accompanied by carefully designed explanatory figures and tables. Next, a "Drug Tree" organizes the group of drugs visually (I find this a valuable feature to facilitate student learning). Chapters have lists of "High-Yield Terms" followed by, in most chapters, a "Skill Keeper" question that prompts students to integrate material between chapters. Each chapter has a list of "Key Drugs" that the student should learn. A set of excellent study questions is followed by a set of answers with explanations. A "Checklist" of focused tasks that students should do after finishing the chapter follows each chapter. Appendix I has an alpha listing of all the key drugs accompanied by the most important information for students to learn about that drug. Finally, the book has two USMLE-style practice exams each containing 120 questions. Overall, there are over 1,000 USMLE-type questions in the book.
Assessment: This is one of the better board review books in pharmacology and it closely follows the most widely used textbook for teaching pharmacology. My only criticism is that not all questions are in the clinical vignette style and there are no explanations provided for the 240 questions that are presented in the two practice exams. This eighth edition is needed to keep pace with this rapidly growing discipline.
