I have had no time to study pharm. going to nursing school with three kids and this pocket sized "cheat book" with its funny captions make learning pharm. easy and fun. The main points to remember are clearly marked and with captions. I would recommend this book to all.
Great to have around to look up information quickly. Easy to find the answers you're looking for, it is organized very well.
This handy little pocket-sized book is a fantastic tool for the visual learner. Retaining the information is so much easier than rummaging through drug books. It's too much information to sit down and read like a book, but as a quick reference or a study aid, it's outstanding!
These cards would be better if they weren't so broad and had more drugs! I am in an ABSN program, taking pharm over the short summer, and there's just not enough in here to help me study for tests. It might be good for later semesters just to review some of the basic most common drugs. The illustrations do help though...
This isn't nearly as comprehensive as I expected. Still, I liked the way different drugs were compared against each other (esp. in the cardiac section), and the illustrations and mnemonics were helpful, but the whole thing was just thin.
Highly recommended for nursing students and nurses in practice. Great resource at your fingertips. Fun and easy way to learn important drug classifications. L. L., Nursing Instructor, NYC
