I received the book in a timely fashion. I have no complaints about the company I rented it from. However, I do not like this book being utilized as a textbook. Drug Information for one drug is given on multiple pages scattered throughout the chapter, making it difficult to study all of the information, unless you separate the information yourself by writing it all or typing it by hand. With there being several drugs in each chapter, that is not a time-efficient way to study. Some information was contradictory, making it very confusing as a student studying for a Pharmacotherapeutics class.
