Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: These flash cards have what students need to know when they are studying or reviewing pharmacology for certification examinations.
Purpose: The cards are designed as an aid to help students learn drug names and important information about each drug. The authors have done an excellent job of creating an outstanding study aid for students who are taking pharmacology.
Audience: These are an excellent resource for anyone who has to study pharmacology as part of their curriculum or who has to take a certification examination that has questions on the pharmacology of clinically important drugs.
Features: The cards are organized by drug categories into 15 sections. Each section is introduced with one or more well-designed illustrations detailing the mechanisms of drugs in the category. The front of each card has the drug's generic name, pronunciation, and common trade name. The cards are numbered and color coded for easy rearrangement by students to complement the organization of their pharmacology course. The back of each card has (1) therapeutic class, (2) pharmacologic class, (3) M.O.A. (very clearly described mechanism of action), (4) clinical use, (5) special considerations, (6) adverse effects, and (7) interactions. The bottom of the card lists similar drugs by name. These cards are esthetically excellent and have what students need to know — that is, not too much or too little information. Students love these cards.
Assessment: There are several excellent flash card sets to aid students in their mastery of pharmacology. Others include Lange Pharmacology Flash Cards, 2nd edition, Baron and Lee (McGraw-Hill, 2009); Pharmcards: Review Cards for Medical Students, 3rd edition, Johannsen and Sabatine (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006); and BRS Pharmacology Flash Cards, Kim and Swanson (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2004). Each has its own strengths, but in my view, Brenner's Pharmacology Flash Cards have just the right amount of high yield information.
