The patho approach is very useful. It helps the reader learn concepts and not endless pharmacology facts.Without this approach a pharmacology class and quickly become too difficult and irrelevant.<BR/><BR/>An added benefit was that it allowd me to learn med surg as well. In all my nursing classes there has NOT been enough pathophysiology. <BR/><BR/>Sure there are errors in EVERY textbook.

Do yourself a favor and compare this textbook w/ other textbooks before you believe waht it says. You can't take this textbook too seriously or else you fool yourself into thinking that you know what you really need to know when in fact, there are huge errors, contradictions and omissions in it.
One or two errors -- not a problem. One or two DOZEN errors/ omissions and inconsistencies? Fail.
If you don't believe me...here's a tiny list:
p 73 - NCLEX question 2 - the rationale at the back of the book does not even relate to this question.
p 144 - one of the paragraphs doesn't even belong there. It's nonsensical
p 161 - Contradicting statements in the same section.
P 491 & 492 - contradicting statements about use of probiotic supplements
491 - omitted that penicillin decreases efficacy of contraceptives
I could go on for days...
As for My Nursing Lab -- EPIC fail. (at least 2-3 errors per chapter/per question, etc)

I Also Recommend:
I am currently utilizing this book for my online Pharmacology class. It is easier to read than most textbooks. It is well written and not boring in verbatim as many medical textbooks can be! Definitions, processes and treatments are short, precise, well explained but appropriately covered.
My only personal complaints were:
1) I had problems calculating drips according to the textbook. To put it on paper as they instruct you to is quite confusing, and was taught somewhat differently by my instructor.
2) The workbook that coincides with this text also has incorrect answers at the back of the text.
The book otherwise is "very basic", covers general information very well, and goes hand in hand with a current PDR. When I say very basic, keep in mind how vast the medical field is with pharmacological treatments at this time! (I am by no means stating this is easy material!) The online tests are fair. They consist of 50 multiple choice answer questions, and are challenging most of the time. Few answers are obvious, but the rest make you truly utilize what you have learned! There is also a CD that accompanies the book for further reference. (I, personally, have not utilized the CD.)
This is a book I will be keeping after the class and will not be selling. It will be a great reference after the fact for a "refresher".
