Save time and money with two books in one! Half pharmacology, half dosage calculations—plus an intensive and non-threatening review of basic math!

Both pharmacology and dosage calculations in one clear and simple a bonus CD-ROM with dosage calculation software! Now, there’s one book that allied health professionals can rely on for need-to-know information on the safe administration of drugs and teaching their patients about their medications.

How does it work? The book takes a body systems approach to pharmacology with a basic math review and a focus on drug classifications— preparing students for clinical situations in which specific drugs are used.

The CD provides drug calculation activities and a basic math review that helps them to overcome math hurdles and strengthen those trouble areas. A consistent chapter structure progresses from key terms and behavioral objectives through the chapter content (including critical thinking bullets and tables) to application and review exercises at the end.

Better than two books in one—Pharmacology Clear & Simple has it all!
