This book has been found as very useful for first year nursing students. It gives great examples of medication calculation, and is perfect for students who have to complete SNAP exams for medication numeracy (NM4201 module)

Being able to accurately calculate drug dosages is as important for Veterinary Nurses as well as nurses working with humans! The back to basics element in this book is essential as often the calculations required just need confidence in manipulating numbers - this comes with practising the basics.

This text supports the learning for not only Nursing Student, but also Allied Health Professions. I have used and recommended this for my BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice student who often find a number of other texts difficult to understand. Overall this text ticks all of the boxes.
