It is extremely short and seems to be completely random. For instance, the chapter "Pharmacology" starts with a quick overview of FDA Pregnancy Risk Categories, followed by 3 sentences on the basal metabolic rate and then a paragraph describing Topoisomerase Inhibitors, and so on throughout the book. While a concise book can be quite valuable, in this book even the little information that is there is often unimportant, unintelligible or completely false. For example, a whole paragraph is devoted to "Income and expense accounts" ("Expense accounts- is money that is used to buy things. In a pharmacy this relate to buying pharmaceuticals, paying employees etc." The missing third-person-s is quoted correctly!) At one point, the book explains the acronym USP as standing for "united standard procedure", although USP stands for United States Pharmacopeia, which is THE official source of regulations for pharmaceuticals and one of the most important sources studied by pharmacists in the course of their training. Getting something that basic wrong makes me wonder what other mistakes there are in this book.
I read through the entire book two days before the test.
The first 18 pages give general tips and tricks for taking a multiple choice exam. While these were interesting to read, they are not worth buying the book for.
In the scientific part, I found at least one factual mistake in every chapter, often more (for example, loop diuretics cause hyperuricemia, NOT hypouricemia as stated; BUN is NOT a liver enzyme as stated, it stands for Blood Urea Nitrogen and is a blood test).Read more ›
