Bigger but not better.
By A. Alexander on Oct 26, 2011
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.
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!
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
easy to use

I like guides that are organized in such a way that you don't have to go hunting for the information needed between extraneous information. This is perfect, concise, up to date.

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.

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.
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.
