For anyone attempt an anaesthetic primary examination, Stoelting is a mandatory resource for pharmacology.
It is an unfortunate reality that all pharmacology texts disagree with one another in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. At least in Australia, Stoelting is taken to be the examination reference. It also thus plays the role of a de facto syllabus: material in Stoelting is much more likely to be examined, and material not covered in Stoelting less so.
For this reason, it is indispensible for exam candidates and I would strongly advocate having your own copy. In the end, it is a worthwhile investment given the amount of flesh you already have on the line.
However, I offer two significant points of caution:
excellent txt and a necessity for subject mastery. The older editions are great and for the price of the older one definitely worth the price
