I had to buy this book for an LPN program and complete 14 chapters before classes started. I was able to do the work on my own due to the very clear explanations. This text also provided the correct answers. I did understand the lessons and was able to to the homework with self-study. The excessively high price gave me false expectations of a comprehensive text. It is actually very, very basic information. If you can understand the equation - (D/H) * Q = Dosage, then you don't need this text. Way too expensive! Well-done, nice layout, good examples, but just obscenely expensive.Was this review helpful?
