1,150 critical thinking questions (both multiple choice and alternate format) organize the seemingly huge volume of pharmacology information students must master into manageable sections divided by body systems and specific diseases. They not only learn to associate the medication with the disease process, making learning easier, but are also able to evaluate their knowledge of medications prior to taking their exams.

All of the questions encompass the basic concepts for medication administration, including why the client is taking the medication • when the nurse would question administering the medication • how the nurse knows the medication is effective • and what interventions the nurse needs to teach the client concerning the medication.

"I love that the questions come with rationales and that the books are filled with relevant questions! Tons of people in my class use them and without fail we rave about them after each test!"—Taryn Van Rensburg, Student Nurse at Naugatuck Valley Community College, CT.

This is an incredible tool to help nursing students study. It provides critical thinking questions with rationales for both right and wrong answers. I highly recommend this, along with the rest of the "Sucess" series for your nursing student career. It will help to improve your scores!

My RN program recommends these books because Kathy Colgrove is the team leader for level III and VI RN students of my college. I became an LVN then RN. I have used this book throughout both programs and to study for NCLEX. It is a great study guide and really relates medications to the med-surg nursing process. There are questions on actions, side effects, indications, pertinent labs nursing implications, calculations, delivery methods (IM, IV, IVPB). It is a great tool to study with.

I like this book as it covers medications which is always good to review and it is divided into systems, Endocrine etc... I do not like as it is not Mac compatible and they really do not have a solution for you except purchase more software!
