Format: Paperback
The book is wonderful and organized well....BUT.....SLAM FULL OF TYPOS AND INCORRECT ANSWERS THAT MADDENED AND FRUSTRATED CONFUSED AND WASTED PRECIOUS TIME! Someone needs to do some major proofreading and editing! I found mistakes on page after page...in the text portion and the answer keys. I almost want my money back......As a nursing student studying drug calculations for the first time, I expect my texts to be 'gospel'.

I found this text to be well organized. The instruction is straightforward and easy to follow. The short quizzes & FAQ's were particularly useful.

I learned dimensional analysis in my chemistry courses, but didn't appreciate the power of the method until I learned med. calc. with this book. If you follow the method of this book, it is FOOLPROOF. You will immediately realize when you make a mistake. It does take some practice and it helps to have a good instructor. But you could definitely learn the method without an instructor. Using this book's method, I NEVER got ANY med. calc. test question wrong on my in-class exams or on my HESI exams. Never. Once you learn the method and you watch someone else using another method, you'll wonder how in the heck they avoid making mistakes. I only gave the book 4 stars because there are some errors in the answer key, and that is maddening when you are first learning.

Format: Paperback
I am only on the first chapter of this book and have already found MANY mistakes in the answer key for the "rapid practice" problems. I don't like that the pages are all perforated and can be torn out as if it were a workbook, not a text book. For this reason, among others, it was really overpriced. Also, very displeased with the online access tools. I took the time out of my studies to register and come to find out I don't get access to anything helpful. I believe that the online access registration was just a ploy to get my address and other personal information. Not happy with this book at all so far.

This book was mandatory. We were to read it before taking our practice dosage test for nursing school. I passed my practice and real dosage test on the first try. This book gives you a lot of practice with simple math. Money well spent.

Great book. Easy to understand. Written in a way that makes it easy to understand and apply. I wish all "math books" were this easy to understand. Thanks.

This book is very helpful. My nursing professor is making us teach ourselves this math which seems like a very daunting task. Ive been going chapter by chapter and this book is awesome. There are tons of practice questions after each example which makes life a little easier.

This book does the impossible...it makes math simple! It was required by my school and it became a very valuable resource.
