This book is just ticket for all student nurses trying to graple with drug calculations. It is clearly laid out with lots of exercises to perfect the various drug calculations. I especially like the pictures depicting the different drug packaging and also stating what various drugs are for.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wee mistake but otherwise excellent. 1 Sep 2014
I highly recommend this book for those wishing to increase their medicine administration and calculation skills and knowledge. However, there is a mistake in the first few chapters and the publisher was made aware f this in 2011/12.
