From The CriticsReviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: "This is an excellent pharmacology review book for healthcare professionals who are visual learners. This edition is by far the best. "
Purpose: "This review is designed to facilitate the learning of pharmacology using over 500 excellent full-color illustrations integrated with high-yield text information on drugs. The authors have done a marvelous job of creating illustrations that students will find very helpful for the mastery of pharmacology for course and board certification exams. "
Audience: "All who need to study pharmacology will find this book very valuable if they learn best with visuals. It is appropriate for students in nursing, pharmacy, allied health professions and medicine educational programs. "
Features: This book covers all areas of pharmacology that are typically covered in a discipline-based course or an integrated curriculum. By far the strength of this book is the over 500 full-color illustrations. Other features include access to a fully searchable online version with an image bank that faculty can use for preparing lectures. There are also very appropriately selected 125 national board-like review questions with appropriate explanations; however, the writing style of some of the questions still could be improved. This book also contains cross references within the book and to other titles in the series that will be extremely useful for students who learn their pharmacology in an integrated curriculum.
Assessment: Many students love this illustrated review book on pharmacology, whereas teachers are often less excited about it. This edition is by far the best and I highly recommend it for students who are visual learners. Today's students have many excellent resources available to facilitate their mastery of pharmacology. They must select those that best fit their learning style.
