Customer Book Reviews

Bigger but not better.


I used the earlier editions while studying in medical school and for reference since. This new edition, while more voluminous, is unwieldy and confusing. The cute little icons that used to be so helpful are now just unclear, superfluous and often just silly. This is a good example of a publisher working too hard to make a text better, and ruining a good thing in the process. A real disappointment...

Used all of year two, great tool.


If you feel you need a book for year two of medical school pharmacology, this gets my recommendation. The format and layout lined up almost perfectly with my course work. Very easy to follow. (Ex they have most chapters broken up into drug groups like "anti-anginals" "antivirals" or "pharmacokinetics") Too in depth to solely be used for boards studying though.

huge fan of the print edition; now also like the kindle version


I recently updated my "pharmacology: illustrated review series" by Lippincott from the 2nd edition ?2002? to this 5th edition-- but on the kindle. The fact that I was able to purchase it at steep discount-- approx 1/2 off-- (medical reference texts were the "deal of the day" recently) helped that purchase. It works well with the kindle fire (1st version). The graphics/tables are sometimes "smooshed" or "fuzzy", but still readable (you can double-tap to expand to view). Anyway, it was a timely update for me-- a hint: monitor the daily deals around the time of "new semesters" (September, January, for example) to be more likely to catch those "deals of the day".

Great Pharm text


This was a required textbook for my advanced practice nursing pharmacology class, and well worth the cost. Wow, this narrows down the content to easy to understand concepts. A must-have, in my opinion!

awesome pharmacology book.


This book is definitely a must-buy for anyone wanting to learn the basics of pharmacology! The text is easy to read & the pictures are a great supplement.

Powerful review for pharmacology


I have Kaplan lecture notes pharmacology, although Kaplan with their lectures are very informative and I will stick to the ratios they give; but in depth study will be with this book as it has very nice illustrations (I called it Robbins pathology like) and case reviews but it is very easily taken up by the mind. Very good book although I need to finish it first Ships fast New and Powerful illustrations each page and that is cool to memorize it. 5 start+ for it and Amazon



This book is very simple and very structured at the same time. I am in a nurse practitioner program and was able to choose from 4 text books for the pharmacology class I am taking. I bought this and Rang and Dale's. I ended up keeping this one. I like the fact that it kept everything very streamlined and structured. Great diagrams. Highly recommend.

Love it


I love the way this book is written. It is easy to understand. Great for NP and medical students, and probably anyone who wants learn pharm.

Organized and illustrated


This is not a traditional, boring, dry,pharmacology text. It offers pictures and explanations of how the drugs actually work in the body. It is the professor's choice for the MSN program I am enrolled in.

Great reference book


This book is great as a reference book and as a supplement to the current textbook we are using. Its easy to read and understand.

Excellent study guide


This is a great companion to your schools Pharmacology textbook. I am a Nursing student and my textbook comes at me from the perspective of physiology of disease, with prototype drugs for treating that disease. This study guide focuses more on the drugs themselves and has just enough additional information for you to get a well grounded understanding of the different drug groups. I also use Lehne's Pharmacology textbook for a very in depth understanding of the physiology of disease and the drugs used. All three of these give me easy (Lippincotts'), medium (Pharmacology Connections to Nursing Practice - my schools textbook) and "hard" or more chemical understanding of Pharmacology. Can't go wrong with this book!

Easy to read


I ordered this book to help me understand some of the things I do at work better. It's very easy to read and understand.
