Highly recommend this book for the LVN/LPN student entering school. Really helps with familarizing yourself with Drug Dose Calculations. Also, this book gives you an overview of the different drugs prescribed for different diagnosises. Awesome cross reference book!

I ordered the book for a pharmacology class. Delivery time was about average, I got it in time for my class. However, the first ten pages were all torn up like they went through a shredder. I had to keep the book, though, because like I said, I needed it for my class and couldn't wait to send it back and get another one.

The book itself was good, useful detailed drug information on med safety, administration, classifications. It did the trick for me to get an A in this class.

This book isn't in-depth. It covers the basics, and the book does so in a way you can understand. It does not seem geared towards a class that requires a more extensive knowledge of pharmacology. This textbook is being used by my medical coding class to give us an overview of pharmacology. The chapters are relatively short.

Book was brand new when I bought "like new." I don't like the book itself...I personally like scenarios with different drugs. Regardless of the book however, would definitely go with this company again.
