Nice book with great illustrations. Well written and easy to understand. I appreciate being able to purchase and rent books from Amazon to avoid the over priced books at the campus store. Amazon rentals makes things much easier on the pocket book since going to college is very expensive in itself, so appreciate this service. I also find that purchasing used book is great. Even purchasing used study guides is very helpful since sometimes the notes and highlighting that the previous owner may have left behind also helps during studying and reading. It is like having a study partner. Happy studying!

I enjoy reading this book and learning the different medications and how they affect the body and aid in treating signs, symptoms and diseases. The format of the provides you with summarized information of the different conditions and the various medications that can be used to treat the condition. The book also gives details on how the medications work in the body to treat the conditions. It is easy to read and understand, the chapters also reference other sections in the book to build on your knowledge of the medications used.
This book is without the gook the other larger Pharmacology books give you. There's not a lot of the chemical break down like the other books but more of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics are. Side effects are clearly spelled out and the book makes learning drugs easy. I wish I had this book the first time around!
