    Great resource for student nurses

    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.

    Cute, but...

    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...

    Wonderful Help!

    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!

    An okay supplement to your textbook

    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.
