BRS Pharmacology is designed for medical students, dental students, and other students preparing to enter the health care professions. It is intended primarily to help students prepare for licensing examinations, such as the USMLE, but can be used for course review or as a supplementary text. This book presents succint descriptions of how drugs act on the major body systems, providing readers with vital information without overloading them with extraneous details. Written with a body systems approach, the book begins with a chapter devoted to the general principles of drug mechanisms, and continues with chapters that detail how drugs act on the major body systems. Other chapters discuss numerous popular drugs, like autocoids, ergots, anti-inflammatory drugs, and immunosuppresive agents. Readers will also learn about drugs used to treat anemia, disorders of hemostatis, infectious diseases, and cancer. Additionally, the text covers pharmacological principles associated with toxicology.
I used this book as an MS-2 to supplement course work, as my sole text for the NBME Pharmacology Shelf and sole text for Step 1 pharmacology. Even as an MS-3 I do not leave home without this book so you can look forward to knowing that this book will continue to serve you well in the wards. Indeed, it presents a lot of material but in outline format and I found that I only really needed to highlight a fraction of the book to really master pharmacology for the MS-II year, shelf, and Step. However, even as an MS-3, I continue to add highlights and annotations to the book and even further refine my knowledge in pharmacotherapy. My pharm shelf exam, which is taken as MS-2, was tied for the highest in my class and I have always attributed that to the excellent layout of the book and subsequently, the ability to quickly get through it over and over again once you have performed a first pass highlight through all the chapters. Buy this book, cherish it, and it will not let you down. It also has vignette and short style qs, 10-20 qs at end of chapters and an 80 q cumulative test at the end of the book, another asset of the book.
