So, I am about two weeks out from finishing my pharmacology class. This book makes the material quite readable. Of course it's dry and the material is daunting, but come on guys, it's pharmacology!

I really like this book. It presents the material in a way that is easy to follow (well as easy as it can be) and I appreciate his little side notes when he wants to let you know something is really important.

I'm not sure if we'll be using this book next quarter as well (I'm taking a second pharm cour
If I have to read these monstrous texts i'm going to bloody well count them towards the number of books I read in 2012. Though this one counts as 10 books, right? It certainly weighs as much!
Information is clear and concise, giving you the bits you need to know in obvious, large print, and then the finer details or further reading in finer print.

for a textbook, it ain't bad. he puts the stuff you don't actually need to read in really small print, so its easy to just skip over it. he also is up front about rules and policies that are stupid by simply stating this is the way it is, and yes, it is stupid. a little humor is nice for a change.
Other than the fact that I was forced to read all 100+ chapters of this book in one semester, it is actually a really good resource. Also, I love it dearly for its description of yawngasm associated with the antidepressant Anafranil. Yeah!

So much information it made my head hurt. The gratification from figuring it out made it all worthwhile- Or maybe it was my oddly attractive way-too-old professor who made it worthwhile!

Excellent, excellent resource for clear, concise explanations regarding pharmacological treatments along with pathophysiology, so you can really understand how the drug works. This is a great book.

Yes, it's for school. If I put it in here, I may actually read it like I'm supposed to. . . . . .
