The Thirteenth Edition of Pharmaceutical Calculations represents a thorough update of this textbook, which for over six decades has met the needs of students in this subject area. This edition's Introduction presents a stepwise approach in solving calculations problems. Each chapter of this edition includes learning objectives that direct the student's focus and provide a basis for self-assessment following completion. Coverage includes new material in areas such as e-prescriptions, medication orders in nursing homes, hospice care, patient self-administration of analgesia, intravenous infusion rate calculations for the critical care patient, and patient conversions to alternative treatment plans.
A companion Website includes the fully searchable text and an interactive quiz bank with more pharmaceutical calculation review problems.
Needs Solutions Manual

One major drawback: There is no solutions manual. Granted, the answers are at the ends of chapters, and this is all right for the most part. But there are some questions for which a simple answer is inadequate. Either the chapter lesson leaves the student unprepared to answer the question, or the wording of the question is ambiguous, so the student has to work backwards from the answer. A book of highly technical calculations, especially by the 13th edition should have a solutions manual.
Ansel's pharmaceutical calculations 13th edition
By Jhartm9 on Sep 11, 2010
the book is ok sometimes but most of the time it's only the answers at the end of the chapters and not how to do them. there are many problems I have to work on for a long time and look at other texts just to solve. The chapters are inadequate to solve some of the end of chapter problems without further help or rigorous contemplation.
Great Pharmaceutical Mathbook
By Serena on Dec 04, 2013
This book helped a lot in our Pharmaceutics class. Though it was not required as a textbook I did find it helpful to explain a lot of the calculations in class and showed a lot of more helpful ways to do Pharmaceutical calculations than was shown in class. Very straightforward and easy to understand the methods they show in the book.
