This text has the great advantage of explaining the diseases that the drugs discussed treat, but some pathophysiology explanations are not very clear. A few details are flat out wrong. All figures are taken from other Mosby books, mostly nursing texts; sometimes these schematics are brilliant, sometimes they are not clear,and sometimes they are not quite applicable to this text.

End of chapter multiple-choice tests are poorly written and not that applicable, answers are often not in the text; I think tests were written by test writers, not by pharmacists. A test workbook (that does not contain answers) can be purchased in addition to this book.

Poor editing: sometimes summaries have duplicated lines (that were copied and pasted, but not cut) or lines in the text end without finishing the sentence. Perhaps the brand new edition corrects these? Meanwhile the price on used copies of this slightly outdated text is outstanding. Mine came with the promised unopened CD (read the seller's comments carefully if you need the CD or an access code).

It would help if Tech alerts (which warn about similar sounding drugs names that are sometimes confused, a very useful feature) either explained what the different drugs listed are or they were listed in the index so it was easy to look them up. On the other hand, most students using this book have a drug reference book or could use online resources.

Love this book! Easy to understand and very informative. I would definitely recommend this book to all pharmacy technicians or those studying to be a pharmacy technician.
