"I feel the way it was written, the style, and the question reviews at the end of the chapter would help the students better prepare for taking their certification exam." "I will definitely recommend this book to my students for additional study material and to my fellow instructors here and at our other schools in the hope that we will soon acquire this textbook.""Having reviewed the table of contents and a number of chapters, I am very impressed with the completeness of this text. I have a habit of looking for things that are missing or should be changed and wasn't able to find anything in this review. All material appeared to be up-to-date and covered in a depth compatible with reviewing for the certification review."George W. Strothmann, CPhT, Sanford Brown Institute, Fort Lauderdale FL
"I would say about 95% of the hot topics are covered.., it is an excellent source for a review. It provides just the right amount of detail for a short term review of each section or topic."Ashanti C. La Roche', CPhT, A.S., Delgado Community College Pharmacy Technician Program New Orleans, Louisiana
