Product Description

Review

This is yet another classic book that has become a favourite with medical students across the UK. "Rang et al" provides such a solid basis for first and second year Pharmacology, that you are in some of the safest hands. With marvellous diagrams and "cramming" blue summary boxes, the layout is well thought out and very useful. This book is one of the best you will find. It's especially perfect for during revision."Edinburgh Medics, a Res Medica supplement courtesy of the Royal Medical Society, July 2005"

This textbook covers everything anyone could ever need - it goes into plenty of detail, explains things clearly and simply, and has a separate section for drugs used in neuroscience. I found it fantastic for both first and second year medicine, and couldn't have done without it for timed essays and tutorials. A sound investment which i will definitely be using during the third year.

As a final year biomedic, I've been using Rang since my first year. It's an excellent text, and worth having around even if it's not one of your 'essential reading' items, as it has tons of useful info on different drugs and their mechanisms of action. I've found myself in the middle of a physiology course before now thinking to myself "Yikes, I've never heard of this! Better check in Rang", and I know people on very diverse courses (pharmacology [obviously], physiology, medical microbiology, medicine - and others) that do the same.
The writing is very clear and easy to follow. Each drug (or family of drugs) is divided into sections such as Pharmacokinetics, clinical use, method of action, etc., and compared to other compounds with similar properties, with lots of tables and diagrams along the way to make things that little bit clearer.
The price is comparable to everything else on the market, but this is definitely an excellent investment. You'll use it throughout your degree and (my tutor has a copy nestled on his bookshelf) probably beyond.

Having spent 4 years studying Pharmacology it's my opinion that this series is the best overall text book for the subject. I got through my BSc with the 4th Edition and it was always the starting point for any research I did.
It doesn't have all the detail needed for a decent essay or other research; you'll always need to cite journals and more specific text books. But, it gives you concise and clear information on almost anything Pharmacology.
The 5th Edition (I've had my copy for about 2 months now) seems to be a big improvement from the 4th. It's bigger and obviously updated.
A MUST for any Pharmacology student. Cough up the money, it's well worth it.

This famous book has a large scope to cover, but it copes admirably with its task. Terminology is explained in simple language throughout, making it more readable than you might expect. The lack of a glossary of key terms and principles means that you will have to rummage when revising those definitions, but the appendix of drugs lists will be useful.
Throughout, little boxes state key and clinical information, which are handy for revision, although more detail might have been useful in places. The diagrams use real data and are clear and concise. Tables are excellent, cross-referencing to other chapters when possible.

This book contains absolutely everything you will need to know in Pharmacology univeristy course units. The text is very small, so can get a bit boring reading it but, like I say, there's a hell of a lot of stuff crammed in there. Lot of diagrams and text boxes to summarise the heavy stuff. Definitely worth a read.

It is now six years since I sat my finals and had cause to use Rang, Dale & Ritter's excellent textbook in earnest, however even now I find myself turning to the book when I need to determine why a patients results don't fit the expected patterns. This book is an invaluable source for all students of pharmacology as well as biochemists wishing to make sense of the apparently nonsensical.

This book was not bought as a textbook but rather a book to read at my spare time. So I didn't buy the newer edition but instead went for the cheap old second-handed one. Hopefully the information is not dramatically out-dated!

Regardless of the timeliness concern, I have to say this book is very well explained and illustrated. It's a huuuuuge book too, with a wide wide coverage.
