    Helps you to focus on the key concepts!

    The text can be dry reading at times, but then it IS Pharmacology. This study guide gives you a variety of formats for recalling the information, from crossword puzzles and word search to multiple choice and matching. Plenty of Drug Calculation problems as a review of chapter 4. Doing the problems in the Study Guide after reading each chapter in the textbook really helps to cement the data in your memory. I highly recommend it!
