This book is HORRIBLE.  There is absolutely no content worthwhile for exams.  Not sure why it was required for the advanced pharm course I'm taking as I haven't opened it once. The content is based solely on individual meds; no basic pharmacological information is presented which is basically what our exams are based on. What a waste of money! Rent this one, or better yet, try to make it without this textbook.
