Excellent Study guide w/ one mistake,
This review is from: The Traditional Chinese Medicine Formula (Paperback)
I use this text as a study guide for the formulas class I teach. There is only one mistake...
The category: Formulas that Treat Dryness (pgs. 157-169)in Bensky's Formulas & Strategies text are missing completely from this study guide..
Important formulas missing:
Qing zao jiu fei tang
Sha shen mai men dong tang
Bai he gu jin tang
Bu fei e jiao tang
Mai men dong tang
Zeng ye tang
Yu ye tang
Otherwise, this is an effective and highly organized study guide with Excellent Study Questions and Detailed Explanations for the Answers.
The comparison charts and practice questions in the back make this well worth the purchase. This is not a substitute for a source text, but helps to make the information easier to digest.
