4-0 out of 5 stars Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews: Pharmacology, 4th ed
This is a well written review book. I am teaching a pharmacology class for non-physicians, and it more than meets our needs. At 500 pages, this book is very readable, has lots of illustrations, but doesn't give much detail on individual medications. Nevertheless, it is a good book for rapid learning about pharmacology, and for the most part does a good job explaining material presented. I am not disappointed, and would judge the value of this book to be high based upon content provided and relatively low cost for a medical book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Pharm book yet!
Excellent service and the book was in very good condition.This is a book that was used by the ANCC for a recent pharmacology review and it is the best I've ever found.Highly recommended due to its multiple diagrams that are excellent for educational purposes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pharmacology for experienced nurses
More depth than when I was in nursing school.Excellent explanation of classes of medications.A must for any experienced nurse, who can use an extended review.Used in nurse practitioner programs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
I used this as my primary source for studying pharm, and it's absolutely indispensable for studying for the boards. Although I do wish they had those chapter summaries that were in the biochemistry book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Use as text book
I use this book instead of the recommended text book for my pharmacology class.It's very easy to read and understand with lots of helpful tables and charts.Also, it's a small book so I actually have time to read it.Several of my classmates also bought this book as their pharmacology text.Highly recommended for board prep as well. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars It's Ok...So Far
To be fair, I've only read some random chapter assigned in the middle of the book and the first chapter, but so far I think Lippincott's book is better.I've also only read a couple of chapter from Lippincott's.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great resource, but other references are more high yield
I bought this for M2 year of med school. The information in the book is fairly complete, but I will still need to go to Goodman & Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics to really put burning questions to rest. Also note, hopefully your school has a subscription to Access Medicine for both of these resources.

My favorite book for pharm so far is Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews: Pharmacology, 4th Edition (Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews Series). It has 90 percent of the information I need, including new drug classes. It is a little lean on the structures, which Lange covers pretty well. However, I used Illustrated Pharm for all of my antimicrobial information, and hope to use it the rest of M2 year.

Also, don't be scared of Goodman, it's a beast of a tomb but that is because it would be like having you own personal professor describe in detail the mechanism of every drug used for treatment. I cant tell you how many times I thought it was leaving me hanging on an explanation, only to find my questions addressed 3-4 sentences later. Well written and complete, but there is just a lot of stuff to learn about every drug!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good pictures and detail but no review questions
I have read the first several chapters of this book and I have to say the pictures are very nice, colorful and easy to understand. My complaint about this book is that there are no review questions either before or after each chapter. I like testing myself to see if I captured the take home message of each chapter and sadly this book does not have review questions before/after the chapters. There are a few case studies however; they do add to the content of the select chapters that there are case studies. Overall, the book is fine, if you like review questions like me, then choose another book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good text
Had to purchase this book for pharmacy school.This seems to be a pretty nice book.Lots of good pictures and diagrams and fairly thorough explanations.It was a required text but I am not disappointed as I have referred to it numerous times.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful for NCLEX
I found this product helpful in studying for the NCLEX. It hits the major drugs of each classification and the key actions and side effects.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helped with NCLEX
I used these notecards to study for NCLEX and passed with 75q. I am a visual learner, and it helped a lot. In the days that I was too tired of the boring books, I had fun with the silly cartoons on these notecards. It doesn`t have all the meds you must know to pass the test. So, you need something else. I didn`t give 5 stars because it should have more meds.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for me, but maybe for others?
Personally, I hate these notecards and am sorry they were required by my professor.In my opinion, they're silly and childish.The pictures are of cartoons to try to help with understanding (or memorizing) drug concepts, but I prefer other ways of understanding that are more reality-based (like showing me a picture of what receptor a drug works on, rather than a cartoon picture of a cop who blocks a doorway).Again, this is just me - if cartoons work for you these may be helpful!

2-0 out of 5 stars Regret
The devices that they use are helpful in memorization; however, there are not enough drugs covered and sometimes vital information about drugs is omitted. I say come up with creative ways to remember drugs on your own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest book ever
This is an EXTREMELY helpful book for reviewing your drugs. I'm a pharmacy student and it has helped me so much. The pictures really help it stick out in your mind.I would highly recommend it to all health care professionals! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Pharmacology for the boards
This is a great text for a first time learner and a student (like myself) reviewing for the national boards (step 1).The chapters are very clear and not wordy, and the tables at the end of each chapter make for a great preview and review.I am even reading the appendix since it clearly outlines important drugs usually covered on board exams.I recommend this text very highly!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
Great book, very well organized , straight to the point and the table summaries at the end of each chapter are very helpful!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Review
Bought this Pharm book for my wife to study for her Pharmacy class and Step 1 Exam.She really likes it and the questions that It provides for review.The flash cards that you can get to go with it are very useful as well and I would recommend getting them for further review

5-0 out of 5 stars So far, great.
I just received this book a few days ago and have read the first few chapters. My impression is that this is a great mix of board review with actual pharmacology. Don't expect in-depth cell-signaling though. This isn't the point of this book. It's a pharm book for med students looking to prep for the boards.

The pictures are in color and very pretty. LOTS of multiple choice questions at the end of each chapters. Probably a worthwhile investment for most medical students who want a dedicated pharmacology review text.

5-0 out of 5 stars First Impression- Excellent!

After going through some chapters, my first impression is that this is an excellent review book.
But I was pleasantly surprise that this review and multiple choice book(9th Ed) is as big as the main
text book! (probably the biggest edition so far) meaning that it is very loaded with enhanced info,different
in format from the main text and previous editions. I recommend this exam prep book for anyone who what to enhance
his/her mastery of pharmacology for many purposes. ... Read more

Product Description

The current science of pharmacology -- and its clinical applications -- at your fingertips


"This remains the gold standard of useable texts for teaching pharmacology to medical students. In my opinion, this is the best edition.... continue to use this book as a required resource for all courses that I teach to medical and allied health professions students....I also use this as the major resource for an elective offering in Advanced Pharmacology for third and fourth year medical students. This book continues to be the standard that all other pharmacology books attempt to emulate."--Doody's Review Service

Now in its 25th year of publication, Basic and Clinical Pharmacology is the most up-to-date and complete pharmacology textbook available. Through nine previous editions it has set the standard for concise and easy-to-read, yet comprehensive coverage of pharmacology. The text's integration of basic with clinical science makes it well suited for an integrated organ-system-based curricula as well as the more traditional curricula.


  • In-depth coverage of key pharmacology topics, from basic principles to pharmacologic considerations for autonomic, cardiovascular-renal, smooth muscle, CNS, endocrine, antimicrobial, and chemotherapeutic and immunotherapeutic drugs
  • Updated with dozens of new, recently approved drugs, including monoclonal antibodies
  • Detailed review of the mechanism of action and toxicities of traditional and newer drugs
  • Critical discussions of treatment strategies and recommended drugs for all major diseases
  • Valuable section on toxicology that provides an introduction to occupational and environmental toxicology; heavy metal intoxication and chelators; and management of the poisoned patient
  • Ready-to-use, study-enhancing features, including special interest boxes, lists of common preparations, and dosage information
  • Unique evidence-based chapters on abused drugs; special aspects of perinatal, pediatric, and geriatric pharmacology; and over-the-counter drugs, herbal medications, and nutritional supplements

    5-0 out of 5 stars great book
    Pretty much all I can review is on the arrival condition and the price of the book since the content is the same regardless where it is purchased.So, the book arrived in great condition and the price was much cheaper than bookstore price on campus.So, it was a great buy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars katzung
    This book does actually help reinforce some of the key concepts that we learn in class as well as give a little more background on some agents. Well worth the money I spent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exellent on the Kindle
    Katzung's pharmaology is a perfect book for the Kindle. The diagrams come across perfectly on the greyscale screen (even on my 1st generation Kindle), and it is easily navigable from the table of contents.

    Since Katzung is designed to be a quick reference text instead of a full, in-depth treatment of all of the pharmacology surrounding the drugs covered, I am especially grateful for the digital edition. With the Kindle reader for iPod Touch/iPhone, the PC reader, and the soon-to-be-released blackberry reader, I can have my text with me wherever I am for quick reference. For this reason, I am making the move to get more and more textbooks and reference texts for my Kindle.

    A text like this is so nice to have searchable. I find myself using the search feature often to zoom right in to the area that I need to read.

    Finally, the digital price for this text is so much less than for the print version, it is just too good to pass up. Thank you, Lange, for publishing in Kindle; please keep it up.

    4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT for pharmacology courses
    This is an excellent book to use in medical school pharmacology courses.It then continues to be a great resource afterward.The text is easy to read and understand.One note, is that this is available on-line now through many schools, so before you purchase this, be sure that you don't have access to a free copy.

    Studying from this book brought my grade up SIGNIFICANTLY.I really wish I'd know about it before the first exam!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money
    I bought this book after using a friend's copy of "Clinical Anatomy made Ridiculously Simple".I loved the little cartoons and mnemonics for remembering the thousands of new terms in anatomy, and thought this style would be great for another memorization subject like pharmacology.However, this book uses none of those little tricks.It is page after page of tables comparing one drug to another.I already have that in my pharmacology lectures!Don't waste your money on this book.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not happy
    This book was supposed to new...it was...but had over 10 blank pages.It must have been a defective book not good enought to sell to retailers. Missing key pages of detailed content in a pharmacology book makes it useless.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not very helpful.
    I'm not sure how this book ended up in the Ridiculously Simple series. Maybe because of brevity with the subject? It reads like an abbreviated text. It does put some abbreviated information in table form, but it's overly complicated and doesn't streamline the information any better than a typical, bloviating text book does. Not interesting. Few helpful pointers. Just the same information presented in a slightly different way. Well, almost the same. It actually gets quite a few things wrong. For instance, it states that D1 and D2 receptors are both inhibitory. It even places emphasis on this in the text with Italics. In fact, D1 receptors are excitatory, but D2 receptors are inhibitory. This is CRITICAL to know in order to understand movement disorders such as Parkinsonism so you can know how the drugs work. Another example, it indicates that the half life for fluoxetine is 48 - 72 hours. While technically correct, the pharmacokinetics appear to be nonlinear resulting in a longer half life with more than one dose, which is how a patient is going to take it. Further, its first metabolite is norfluoxetine, which is similarly as potent as fluoxetine, but has a longer half life. They don't present this critical information in this book. Another incorrect statement: They claim that drug tolerance to psychoactive substances such as alcohol is due to cytochrome P450 inactivation. This is not correct. While cytochrome P450 is the most important factor in the liver's metabolizing of many substances, tolerance is actually a purely psychological factor. Studies have shown that tolerance occurs when drug use occurs in the same surroundings repeatedly. If a person who has tolerance to the drug is moved to unfamiliar surroundings, all tolerance to the substance is gone. With abuse, and increasing use of a substance, of course cytochrome P450 will build up to handle the increased load, but simply having an understanding of Michaelis-Menten kinetics shows that there is a maximum rate that will be achieved, and the deactivation rate of compounds will not proceed any further based on just increasing the enzyme to match the substrate concentration increases. Therefore, although the person can consume more of the substance, this doesn't mean that they have a tolerance. They get just as intoxicated, they just don't overdose as easily.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing.Little content besides lists and lists
    I was disappointed in the bookI hoped to learned about the fundamentals of clincal pharmacology, but all I got was page after page of tables of drugs, mechanism of action, undesirable effects, etc.I could have gotten that from the PDR or the Merck Manual.I learned more of what I was after just by reading wikipedia (unfortunately, after I bought the book).It was more on clinical practice than how clinical pharmacology is used to study new compounds or drug interactions, etc. ...

    Seller information was correct; delivery was on time. I would buy again from this seller.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fast as a bullet
    I was so pleased to have received my order so fast, especially because it was a Holiday weekend.It took off some of my stress away cause I had my test that same week.Thank you.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Book falling apart
    The book was labeled as Used-Acceptable. Well, I received it with the book and the binding in two seperate parts. Not to mention that the book itself was coming apart into 3 different sections. If I didn't need it so badly, and had the extra time, I would have returned this book to sender!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Rarely used this book
    I purchased this book for my first nursing semester pharmacology course. The book is great it has plenty of drug information, tables, and a calculations section, but I did not need it. My instructor's notes were so good that I rarely had to open this book. I ended up selling the book back to Chimes. It was okay for me because it put me to sleep, but I don't want to discourage anyway from getting it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Problems with Binding
    I bought the book at the beginning of my first year of nursing school. However, we did not begin using it until 2nd semester, so I put it up on the bookshelf the way it came. When time came around to using the book, I broke the plastic seal around the book and opened it... to find that the binding in the center of the book was coming apart. If your a person that likes to keep things neat and organized (me), this will definitely peeve you off! I am so put off abt it... I still get angry everytime I need to use the book (often). Since I bought the book months ago, I cant do anything about it. ... Read more

    Product Description
    Basic Pharmacology for Nurses, 15th edition, is a contemporary classic nursing pharmacology textbook known for its impeccably accurate drug content and its practical applications of the nursing process. A consistent emphasis on health promotion through medication monitoring and patient education is a hallmark of the book. Introductory units ground the reader in basic principles of pharmacology and medication administration, and subsequent body-system units apply the nursing process to every major disorder and drug class to promote safe medication administration.

    • Provides an overview of relevant pathophysiology with an application of the nursing process in each drug chapter, followed by an application of the nursing process to each applicable drug class.

    • Covers the pharmacology of all major classes of drugs, emphasizing side effects to expect, side effects to report, drug interactions, and more.

    • Emphasizes patient education and health promotion with easy-to-recognize Patient Education and Health Promotion headings and reproducible Patient Self-Assessment forms.

    • UNIQUE! Each chapter concludes with a 3-part Medication Safety Review that highlights the importance of safe drug administration and provides review and application of key chapter content related to medication safety.

    • Provides need-to-know coverage of herbal therapies and dietary supplements with an Herbal and Dietary Supplement Therapy chapter, plus Herbal Interactions boxes throughout the chapters.

    • UNIQUE! New coverage of drugs for weight management are included in the expanded Nutrition and Weight Management chapter (Chapter 49).

    • Increased emphasis on medication safety prepares nurses to practice more safely in a clinical environment that is both more pressured and more focused than ever on reducing drug errors. The increased emphasis includes Chapter 7: Principles of Medication Administration, do-not-confuse icons, and an icon to signal ISMP's "high alert" drugs.

    • As the focus on pharmacology on the NCLEX continues to increase, chapter-ending Medication Safety Review sections have been refocused into three types of application-level questions, including Dosage Calculation Review Questions, Review Questions for the NCLEX Examination, and Critical Thinking Activities.

    • Evidence-based practice content is now highlighted with a distinctive icon in the margins.

    • The antimicrobial chapter has been broken into three smaller chapters (Antimicrobiotics, Antifungals, Antivirals) resulting in a less overwhelming reading on this topic.

    • Updated coverage of the most recent FDA approvals, withdrawals, and therapeutic uses provide impeccably accurate and current content to ensure safe drug therapy.

    • Updated and streamlined coverage of nursing care with a stronger focus on the need-to-know material helps students focus on the most current, need-to-know content.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad news
    I ordered them on the 9th and was told I'd receive them around the 28th. It's the 8th and I'm still waiting. I want my money back.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good but don't always fit curriculum
    They seem fine. It is useful to learn Pharm but the drug list and content doesn't always match my curriculum in Med School, sometimes more in depth and sometimes too brief. I don't blame the card (each professor has different emphasis), but keep that in mind before buying any pharm flash cards.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Cards
    These are really good, completely sufficient notecards. They're not going to tell you every possible interaction for the drug, but they will do a good job of getting the key concept across. They're excellent for rapid-review, since they have a very simple front with just the drug name, and all the information is uniformly organized on the back. I have another sent of Lange flashcards, and while the vignettes are interesting to go through once, these are much better for the rote memorization elements of pharmacology.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Lack detail and incomplete
    I bought these cards a few months ago with the aim of helping me study for Pharmacology in MS2 and also mainly for Step 1 preparation. They are generally fine for my school exams, but lack detail for Step 1 at least compared to the USMLE world questions. For example, I recently did a question on Verapamil referring to atrial fibrillation. However A-fib isn't on the list of clinical uses on its respective card. Further, the patient in the vignette had AV node heart block, which is a complication that happens in about 1% of patients, but again this complication was not listed on the card. BOTH those features (A-Fib + AV block) WERE listed in BRS however, so they aren't ridiculously obscure features or anything.

    I'll be ordering PharmCards, despite apparently having too much detail, and will use those along with these.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pharm cards
    These pharm cards are awesome for first year medical students when it comes to learning introductory drugs. They are complete with MOA, side effects, drug interactions and uses. The cards make it so much easier to understand instead of looking at a giant drug chart. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Study Group Resource
    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars For Nursing students
    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Helped me pass Pharmocology
    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great For What It Is...
    ...and what it is is a good supplement to your regular pharmacology textbook. I chose this book over the many other available options because it was written in an easily-accessible style for a nursing student (me). The text book my class uses is good and very thorough, but that is also it's downside. Pharm is so broad that there is a lot of info to cover. This book is great as a companion piece - it breaks down drugs into classes and tells you a bit about the classes. If you need to memorize multiple, specific drugs for each class, this book isn't as great. But if you want to know the specifics of, say, NSAID's, then this book certainly helps. It's real strength is that it sticks to the pertinent info, and doesn't flood the reader with details that may or may not be important. This won't replace your text, but will give you a concise 'second opinion'.

    3-0 out of 5 stars not that easy
    I thought it would be easier to learn pharmacology through this INCREDIBLY easy thing, but actually our text book is soooo much better. For me - waste of money. Otherwise, our textbook is $80, so if I didn't have it, then it would be ok to learn from this one. Even though infois not full.

    3-0 out of 5 stars This book is just ok
    I have several books from the Incredibly Easy series but this one kind of disappointed me. I wish they would have included more illustrations and mneumonics, to help you memorize the content.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Memorization Techniques, Limited Usability
    Pharm is a broad subject, and it can be tough to memorize all those meds and what they do. This book is written in a humorous manner, and some of the cartoons actually help things stick in your mind. The problem stems from the fact that it doesn't have enough medications or info to cover what you'll be looking at in your standard nursing pharmacology text. Use this as a supplement only.

    Book arrived in excelent condition. Super fast shipping and great price. This book makes learning and remembering drugs fun and much easier than just using the regular drug guide. I am very pleased with this purchase!

    I would assume that the majority of people who would buy this book are taking a class in pharmacology. I have had alot of recommended text books that were not worth even taking out of the wrapper, but this book is not one of them. The author's actually spent the time to organize and gather relatively current information and then put a hard cover on it. It's getting harder and harder to get that combination. I gave this a 5 star rating because it really will be a book you will keep and reference after the class is over. ... Read more

    This book is great for does who find themselves drifting into space as you ream the big pharm books.It's very helpful in making sure that you pay attention to the most dire info about each drug through an answer and question format.I wish I had it earlier for my classes but I guess I'll just use it for my boards instead.And if you get bored while reading you can listen to the awesome audio files that comes with the book (it's online and you only have a year after activating the code to download the files).Actually the audio is kinda lame, the voices are of 2 professional announcers instead of 2 normal people...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great review for boards
    This was a great review for boards. I got tired of flashcards and wanted to study in a different format. I used flashcards all throughout but would focus on the pharm in first aid. I would then use this book to further hammer home the key pharm info and to get more in-depth mechanism explanations. For wards it hasnt really worked its way into my study routine yet, but I've just started and I'm sure this will be helpful for review for step 2.

    I found this book to be an awesome review/learning book for pharmacology.It is easy to use and straight forward.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Pharm Book for Step 1
    There was only drug I didnt know about on my Step 1 exam thanks to this book. It comes with free audio, so you can always study on the go. The book is neatly organized into systems and each drug has classification, mechanism of action, side effects, indications and contraindications. The book also has all the recent drugs on the market such as spectinomycin which are actually fair game for the exam. At the end of the book is a Power Review, which gives a you dramatic rundown of all High Yield testable material. I highly recommend this book for anyone studying for Step 1.

    I heard many times that Pharmacology was a very difficult subject. My school requires for students to take Pharmacology as a separate course and there is no way I could have been successful without the help of this book. I made straight A's in all my exams and finals, simply because I took advantage of answering and reviewing questions in the book and on the cd.
    Please buy this book! You will not have any regrets.

    I just got this book a few weeks ago,so far this isone of the most comprehensive in phramacology study for nursing students.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but Not exactly what I hoped for
    I have always really enjoyed the Review & Rationale series but this was the first book that fell a little short for me. I am not giving this book a bad review because it is a good book; it is organized, clear, and easy to understand. This book probably would have been more helpful to me when I was in nursing 101 or Med/Surg. I purchased this book during my final semester in nursing school while taking a critical care class. Most of the medications I learned about in critical care were not covered in this book which I didn't realize when I made the purchase. I spoke with another nursing student in my class who also has this book and she agreed: OK book but not a favorite. I don't exactly know why but I always reach for other references first before looking at this book. Perhaps one should look through a copy of this book before buying it to make sure it fits your specific needs.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pharmacology Review & Rationales
    HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. It is an easy read and pulls the important stuff the instructor is looking for and condenses everything for you. Any book in the Review/Rationale series is a MUST have for nursing students. It is not a replacement for the textbook but when you are overwhelmed and quickly need something to give you the understanding of a concept this book does that.

    I orginally took Pharm using the Lippencott text and it was a special torture.Recently I decided to audit Pharm now that I have some clinical experience and am loving this text.The illistrations alone make it worth the purchase.A picture really is worth a thousand words (expecially when describing the electrolyte exchanges in a cardiac cycle.It FINALLY make sense seeing it in a graph).Once the course is over I am keeping this for reference and Lippencott is going in the recycle.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pharmacology for Nurses
    This is an excellent book for nursing students. The book is well-organized and not too difficult to read (providing you have a good background in anatomy and pathophysiology). This is fascinating material. It would be nice if they included more charts or graphs that compared different types/classes of drugs that are similar yet different. I think that would make some of these concepts easier to understand if they were organized graphically.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good product
    Bought these for my husband about a month ago. He has been using them ever since. They were in excellent shape when I received them.

    2-0 out of 5 stars not good for step 1
    I was really excited when I found theses cards, at first sight they looked far superior to the BRS/Lippincott cards that everyone uses.However, after going through them I'm finding they are not good for learning drugs for step 1.There are more clinical 'stories' than hard facts about each drug and there is little overlap with the drugs covered in First Aid (scares me I'm not learning what I need to).Perhaps they will be better for step 2 and/or 3 but I'm not going to use them to teach myself drugs for step 1.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good review aid
    The question and answer format is helpful. You need to have a fair amount of background knowledege to get the full use of these cards. Great to read in the train, bus etc!

    5-0 out of 5 stars good for pharm and more
    I had a number of questions on step 1 that I wouldn't have gotten correct if I hadn't used these cards.It doesn't seem like it, but there is a lot of information in the cards. I plan on using these cards to review for my other board exams. I used the other pharm cards to study but ended up primarily sticking to this set.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Step 1 Taker
    Okay, I got these because I really am weak on pharmacology for step one. They are chock full of information (more then you need) but they explain that on the insert and how to use them if studying for step 1, 2, or whatever. There were a few typos which I was not pleased with but they weren't so bad that I didn't know what the actual drugs name was. Also, I wish the cards were made of sturdier material as they were a bit to thin for my liking and bent easily.I haven't gotten any other flash cards to compare them to but overall I would recommend them. They did the job and I think they'll be still be useful next year for when I take Step 2. ... Read more
