5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have For Nursing! August 1, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't stress enough how many nursing students before me stressed the importance of getting this book and starting it before classes. It was a book required by my school, however, I may have purchased it anyways on my own. It goes over all the math essential to nursing. I like the way the chapters are split up and it looks like it has enough examples and practice problems to allow you to learn the material properly. There is also a website that correlates with the book that has practice tests - so all around you can be prepared with this book.

2 months after initial review.. I wanted to come back and add more to this review because I have been using this book for the last few months for my Pharmacology Nursing class at school. I LOVE this book! It is full of important, invaluable information pertaining to Nursing. It has lots of questions for practice so that you know that you know the calculations - the answers are in the back of the book and in many cases, it explains why the answer is what it is. If your school does not require this book, buy it anyways! It is easy to learn and thoroughly explains concepts. The book presents several different methods / formulas for working calculations, so it makes it easy to find one that works for you. Awesome book!! One that I will refer back to often over the next few years!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book lets teachers get paid for nothing! December 8, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Seriously, this book is SELF TEACH! I totally learned all aspects of dosage calculation strictly by this book. My teacher was less than adept at teaching this. This is the best book EVER. If you are afraid of math, start at chapter one and work through, you will be totally Confident at the end of the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for Nursing Student. September 15, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very thorough in explaining every concept and with a lot of examples. I use to have a hard time learning and understanding fractions but this book makes it VERY easy & fun. I would highly recommend it anyone who is entering the nursing field - it breaks everything down & would be an excellent resource to study for the NCLEX exam later on.
