Book Description

January 21, 2011 013215661X 978-0132156615 10

Fully revised for current practices and medication, this MEDICAL DOSAGE CALCULATIONS: A DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS APPROACH, 10/e  remains the field’s most complete, user-friendly and accessible drug calculation text and workbook. Using the dimensional analysis format it pioneered, students begin with simple arithmetic, progressing to the most complex drug calculations. As they develop mathematical skills for accurate dosage calculations, they also gain a thorough professional understanding of safe drug administration. Compared with competitors, our text contains deeper, more realistic problems, incorporating actual dosages and requiring real critical thinking. Coverage includes titrations, IV push, VCC, and other complex calculations. Updates include: revised safety recommendations and insulin coverage; new equipment and labeling photos; and 0.5 mL and needleless syringes. Pedagogical aids include case studies, self-tests, and a website for student resources.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many errors! October 5, 2012
By Frank
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great and easy to understand textbook but there are lots of errors... I would try an example and look at the answer at the back of the book which was wrong (and verified wrong by my professor). this happened multiple times which made learning and studying frustrating at times, and some examples were obviously wrong and had various typos!!! I am very frustrated I was made to buy this book as it had that many typos!!! very disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! September 17, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book shows you step by step how to solve may of the math problems you encounter in nursing. I have been out of school for over 20 years and could not remember how to do many of the problems, but this book has helped me a great deal. If you are taking some type of math class for the health field, this book is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple June 19, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very easy to understand textbook. I used it for a course I had previously taken at a different school and found it much easier than my previous textbook. Strangely, the chapters use almost the exact same answers for most of their problems. I suppose it's for simplicity, but it would have been nice to see a better variety. I feel like Chapters 8 and 10 could have been explained a little better though. Some of the answers to the extra problems, shown in the last few pages of the book, are incorrect. I'm not sure if this is a flaw for some books, or if it's a flaw for every book in the 10th edition. My professor verified the answers were incorrect. Otherwise, a good book! I wish I had bought this book instead of renting it, because it's just that helpful.

I'm in nursing school and we were required to have this book. I love how it explains how to do the calculations and it is easy to understand. I use it all the time.
