Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From student reviews of the previous edition:

‘Pharmacy degrees are nothing if they don't have a module you hate in them somewhere. For me it was pharmaceutical analysis. Disenchanted, bored, the lectures would send me snoring in minutes… So, want to learn it the smart way? Use this book. … You'll quickly grasp everything you need to know for a very handsome A.’

‘I have nothing bad to say about this book, as it helped me get that A in a module I couldn't stand, so honestly what could be better?’

‘I found this text book extremely useful. It complemented the relevant module of my degree perfectly, it is easy to understand and great value too.’

‘Excellent for practical write-ups and exam revision. Everything I needed to know was right there, easy to find, and in just the right amount of detail. The worked examples are especially useful for exam revision.’

‘I would definitely recommend buying this text book if you are looking for a comprehensive reference text for GC, HPLC, UV-VIS spectroscopy, NMR etc. as part of a pharmacy degree.’

‘For those of you who aren't quite the dab hand you were at A-level maths, in each topic they have numerous worked examples of calculations, plus small exercises at strategic points of the chapter, which I strongly recommend you go through; the confidence it gave me in tackling my exam was a big plus … Another plus is that there is a breakdown of the chapter at the start of exactly what is covered - good for 'quick reference'…. it is also one of the few books available combining various aspects of analytical chemistry, such as UV/ IR/ HPLC/ GC/ NMR spectroscopy.’
