4.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise, obviously helpful for both registered nurses and nurse practicioners., 11 Feb 2014
This review is from: Medication Classes For NCLEX (Kindle Edition)
I found Section 1 Pharmacologic Prefix and Suffix Tables and 2 Hierarchy of Major Pharmacological Classes to be well organized and helpful. It was wise for the author to indicate more than once that generic medicines can have multiple trade names. These two chapters really do seem to serve the purpose of helping the reader to "synthesize knowledge in a way that can increase recognition and knowledge about families and classes of drugs instead of trying to learn every commonly prescribed drug."

Section 3 NCLEX Style Questions and Rationale seem to somehow be out of place. The linkage did not seem to be there as now the author DID get into specifics about prescribed drugs and drug interations where the reader WOULD need to learn in depth about commonly prescribed drugs. The questions were good and answers were provided with rationale but I would have liked it if the reader would have been directed for study in another book where they could research the answers themselves. This section obviously presupposes knowledge previously obtained.

Overall as a quick reference I see this book as being potentially quite valuable for nurses both preparing for exams and to keep their knowledge current. I once was a nursing student myself but, having subsequently become a licensed clinical social worker, I found the references to psychiatric medications useful.
