Well organized textbookReviewed in the United States on 30 March 2008
This text is very well organized. Every chapter starts with an overview of the relevant physiological concepts. They present a Prototypical drug for each class and then compare/contrast the other drugs in that class against the prototype. The amount of information contained in the book is overwhelming (due to the nature of the subject), but the easy to understand layout and consistent use of tables and figures make it much easier to digest. The explanations of how the drugs work are clearly written. The only drawback is that it doesn't contain a glossary, so I need to keep a medical dictionary nearby while studying.

Great pharmacology text!Reviewed in the United States on 6 February 2009
This book has been a great help as I didn't have separate pharm course in my AAS Nursing curriculum. We studied drugs by ourselves instead. The book gives you physiology of body system and pathophysiology of some diseases at the beginning of each chapter. Prototype drugs are described in detail, drugs closely related to prototype and drugs different from prototype are given later. The authors give you little MEMORY CHIPs for each prototype medication, which is great.

Easy read.Reviewed in the United States on 21 July 2016
Easy read, not too technical. In my opinion it almost seemed to be a lower level nursing book.

I purchased this book for nursing school and found it to be helpful in my studies. It's easy to read and to the point.
