You're going to buy this for classBe aware the review questions are (essentially) useless as you have to PAY ADDITIONAL MONEY to obtain the answers.I wish the textbook companies would buy me a nice mealBecause I like to be wined and dined before I get fu.You get my point 110$ and no answers to the questions they ask?Pretty ridiculousGreedy greedy greedyIf you're a professor please don't use this text for you class.Choose a complete text Editing: There are questions at the end of each chapter See appendix C for answers and rationales for all activities Appendix C has formulas for calculating dosages I really could use the answers for studying Also there is an obvious lack of thorough proofreading of this text.Cost: At the college bookstore, this book was 122 dollars Here on I got it for ~95 That's a lot of money to pay for something that is unfinished Come on Pearson.Content: hard to say since I'm not a pharmacology expert My professor selected it new for this semester so we'll see what happens. This text is really wordy I found that It repeats information a lot of the time, there are however little inserts for the prototype drugs and the nurses role which is really useful when studying for an exam or the nclex! Honestly, I just focused on what the book emphasized and restated (about three times) and ended up getting a 102 on my last exam! Good luck to all of the future RNs reading this!! :)
