    The book we used was EXCELLENT! and it was reasonably priced as well. Workbook format, with an answer key in the back. It covers every type of calculation, heparin drips, bolus calculations, body surface area calculations, etc. The name is:

    Calculate with Confidence by Deborah C. Grey

    the ISBN number is 0-8151-2607-7 and I believe that it is available through amazon. I paid 29 dollars for it new, but used copies are usually available (however, getting it new means that the blanks are clear, and you can work through it yourself).

    I have also heard from other students here that the "Incredibly Easy" book series are good, and they do have one for dosage calc. Good luck, once you get it down, its easy to apply and remember.

    Hey thanks I will probably try the Library first and just check it out long enough to take this test. It sounds like a good buy for a later date and handy to have around for the duration of the career.

    Thanks again, Larry
