Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Diane Aschenbrenner, MS, RN, CS (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This is a book of multiple choice practice problems in dosage calculation.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide practice questions for the NCLEX licensing exam.
Audience: The intended audience is nursing students preparing to take the NCLEX licensing exam. The book could also serve as a test bank for nursing faculty who teach this content.
Features: The questions test understanding of different measurement systems; converting between measurement systems; oral, parenteral, pediatric, and intravenous doses; and more complex equations where rate and concentration of the drag are used to determine the dose. A comprehensive exam is also included. Answers to all of the questions are provided, with computation using both the ratio and proportion and dimensional analysis methods shown.
Assessment: Unlike texts for dosage calculation, this book is not a teaching tool to show students how to solve dosage calculation problems or to explain how the equations were set up. Neither are any pictures of drug labels or other illustrations relevant to dosage calculation included. This book should be useful for students who have a basic understanding of dosage calculation but require more practice to become proficient in this area. The grouping of calculation problems may be especially helpful to students who are weak in only one or two areas of dosage calculation.
