Ridiculous, but definitely not simple!
on June 29, 2012
I bought this book after reading Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple, which had a ton of pictures and little tricks in it to help you remember microbiology. This book has none of that. It has endless pages of charts with no memorization aids. The charts are not even organized in such a way that would make memorizing the drugs simple! The charts are way too wordy and complex to make this a review book. The few pictures in this book are just pictures that you would see in a text book or lecture; they definately do not help with memorization. I am in medical school and I already have charts of drugs (that are much better organized by the way) from my lectures. If you are a medical student looking for a book to help you with memorization of pharmacology, or you are looking for a book to review for board exams, I would stay away from this book! This may be good as a reference book, but it does not belong in the ridiculously simple series, as it does not provide any help in learning the material.
