I wish the school I was in would of used this book for Math. This book has a very easy way to look at Medical Dosage and how to use the formulas. I hate the book our school gave us it was too confusing!!! Actually if it wasn't that I watched a Youtube video would have never found out about this book! Thank you!!

The book makes it so simple to understand dosage calculations. Explains everthing in detail in what to look for on drug labels, conversion factors, and even how to use the correct syringe. It's very well composed and easy to use and refer back to when needed.

I liked this easy step book for learning the critical thinking when learning dosage. The author truly takes the sting out of math.
