This review is from: Katzung & Trevor's Pharmacology Examination and Board Review, Ninth Edition (McGraw-Hill Specialty Board Review) (Paperback)
When studying medical pharmacology it is easy to get bogged down to facts and mechanisms and lose sight of the clinical picture. This text does a great job of organization for clinical practice, which for me makes it much easier to digest. It is also written with a direct descriptive style that is better for my learning style than the outline format found in Lippincott's review. Fortunately it lacks the overwhelming depth of Goodman and Gilman's or Katzung's pharmacology texts. There are useful diagrams throughout. I gave it four stars, however, because the end of chapter questions are don't really represent the board-style, as they are primarily basic recall. I also question the medication choices as high-yield. Still one of the most useful resources I have found for pharmacology.
