there was no enough time for Extra reading...despite this, I was very satisfied and relaxed revising my information from this great book before the exam!
and the clinical cases were really helpful!
I'll mark it as "read" for now
but surely I'll need to use it later.

A really nice book about Pharmacology....>
i think this one is lot better than Basic and Clinical Pharmacologybecause it is more comprehensible. yes of course, katzung is more complete compared to lippincott but i think we medical students do not need to dive to deep with pharmaco stuff. for my level i think the prototype drug is the most important for now.(i'm in preclinical phase). understanding the concept is more important. lippincott offers a simpler explanations, and it's good for someone not so bright like me.

الفارما أكثر علم بالبيسك قرأت فيه من كتب. السبب بسيط لأن كليتنا تقدس الفارما.
الكتاب هذا أول كتاب فارما اقرأ فيه. سيء جداً جداً. حتى في تصنيفات الأدوية فيه أخطاء. تقسيمات سطحية جداً.
في الأعراض الجانبية يحطون لك بالغالب فقط الأكثر شيوعاً لا الأكثر خطورة (مواضع اسئلة)
الحسنة الوحيدة هي الاسئلة في آخر كل فصل. ولو إنها قليلة.

عموماً عندما ترى كلمة ليبنكوت اهرب بجلدك.

This is a good book as an introduction into the science of pharmacology. if you are really interested in that science, look for something else.
كتاب يؤسس للمعرفة في علم الدواء، يتكلم في الأساسيات والثوابت التي تُبنى عليها بقية فروع وتخصصات هذا العلم. أنصح به لطلاب الطب والصيدلة

Absolutely recommended for the new medical students and even as a reference for the pharmacology basics . Lot's of diagrams and well constructed. It shows the information rather than just telling it.

حلاوته ان مهما كانت المعلومة معقدة بيبسطهالك ع اكبر قدر تطلع مستفاد بيه
Very disappointing. The language (some Yiddishaccented English) really got on my nerves, as did the stream of consciousness dripping with pathos. The use of Holocaust pain is exploitative. The alliance of feminine experience, masculine violence, antisemitism, and sensitive Jewish musicianship is a tired cliche, but that is less awful than the whinyness of the tone, with its inverted syntax ("Always she remembered..."etc)
P-the book nerd
I practically read this book everyday for 4 months, it was very useful, although I also used Kaplan's step 1 Pharmacology with it, but I recommend this to every student taking pharmacology, it's very simple, obvious, easy to read and brief.
Yay! Drugs made easy, big print, lots of colored diagrams with thick lines, flow charts with burgeoning arrows. at last I understand the antimetabolites and how they work. This is the way to get through pharmacology without having to read Katzung, with its pages like a phonebook

loved this book, one of the best in my opinion, it makes every thing simple and very easy to remember especially for people like me who like the presence of a diagram or photo that summarize a whole subject i highly recomend it

“Mechanism of action: Both drugs are active in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle. They bind reversibly to the β-tubulin subunit, but unlike the vinca alkaloids, they promote polymerization and stabilization of the polymer rather than disassembly (Figure 39.27). Thus, they shift the depolymerization-polymerization process to accumulation of microtubules.” 1 likes
