The original edition was published in 1987. Purpose: The purpose is to create an easy to use drug reference to assist nurses and students in proper dosage calculations, thus reducing medication errors. The objectives are worthy as this is a much needed guide. Audience: This book is written for nurses and students. The author is a credible source.
