Course review now. NCLEX®-prep later.
1,150 critical thinking questions (both multiple choice and alternate format) organize the seemingly huge volume of pharmacology information students must master into manageable sections divided by body systems and specific diseases. They not only learn to associate the medication with the disease process, making learning easier, but are also able to evaluate their knowledge of medications prior to taking their exams.
All of the questions encompass the basic concepts for medication administration, including why the client is taking the medication • when the nurse would question administering the medication • how the nurse knows the medication is effective • and what interventions the nurse needs to teach the client concerning the medication.
“I love that the questions come with rationales and that the books are filled with relevant questions! Tons of people in my class use them and without fail we rave about them after each test!”—Taryn Van Rensburg, Student Nurse at Naugatuck Valley Community College, CT.
Very good book to have. Especially if you’re having problems with “application” type questions on your tests. It comes with a CD too!. also full of questions, math questions as well..
You will actually learn a lot when you read the rationales. It gives you the reason why the answer is right or wrong. However, I was also expecting the book to have a generalized description of the most common drugs, but it doesn’t. It is just full of questions, this will help you with your tests while in nursing school.
I have this whole series of books and they have helped me get through Nursing school. They outline everything in neat order without the extra fluff and the questions have rationales for why each answer is right OR wrong. It’s all about passing the tests and these books help.
Pharmacology is such a vast subject but this broken down into subjects and sub-subjects. A nice review but it’s impossible to cover all aspects when it comes to Pharm. We use it during group study sessions but don’t rely on this alone.
This was one of my most helpful books in nursing school and when studying for my NCLEX. It’s set up with all NCLEX style questions (you know the good old ‘which is more right?’ because two answers could be correct). Those questions drove me crazy in nursing school. But it’s the best way to prepare for the licensing exam. At then end of each chapter they have the right answer highlight and give the rationale for the right answers AND the wrong answers, very helpful if you ask me. I never used the CD that came with the book so I can’t comment as to that. This is a great book though!!!
