“The writing style is straightforward, clear, and concise. Explanations are easy to follow–a student could use this text as self-study. Readability of the chapters is very good – easy to follow from one concept to the next. The reading level is appropriate for my students. The coverage is comprehensive and the organization is very effective. I have used Pickar’s text for over 10 years and find the order very effective.”
I am not very good at math, but this book has helped me during Nursing School. It has step by step rules on how to do dosage calculations to administer medications. It is so straight forward that I was able to pick it up and complete the practice questions without giving up like I used to do with math. I have a math test every semester, so I like to go back to the practice questions right before. It has helped me pass all my dosage tests.
