I am a currently working towards my Nursing degree, and I found this book to be unbelievably helpful! Correct medical dosages are vital to a patient's health and well being. As a medical professional, you have to be absolutely correct in how you calculate a dosage. There are many different types of dosages, and so much to remember in Nursing school, that I found this to be instrumental in completing my courses. It provides you a simple straight forward explanation of how to complete the measurements and conversions; I don't know what I would have done without it. Not only is this beneficial to me as a student, but it will benefit me as a nurse too!
