Great book! This book covers everything you need to know for nursing school, no matter what semester you are in. Everything from lab values, to EKG's, IV medication calculations, abnormal findings! I would highly recommend this, I only wish I had come across this sooner during my earlier semesters of school. THis is definitely a book you will use even after your graduate and get your license.
Nice book to have around for reference. Nice delivery time.
