Flash card web site

  1. I was searching for a site where I could make my own flashcards and that was free. I found it!


    www.memorylifter.com

    I am going to use it to make cards for dosage calculations and nursing shorthand. Let me know what you think!

    Looks cool. I'll have to give it a try.

    Out of curiosity, what are you using to study dosage calculations? I'm looking for a good resource on converting between the apothecary and metric systems.

    I went to Barnes and Noble looked under Pickar [author] and got the 5th edition of Dosage Calculations. It was used but the CD that came with it had never been opened. We are using her book in the fall but the latest edition won't be out until Aug. I paid 12.60 + 3.99 S&H. It is well worth the price. There are conversions for household measures, apothecary and metric.


    It also has a list of shorthand like: b.i.d which means 2 times a day.


    Good Luck! If you want more info let me know.

    Sounds like a good site, wish I would have found it while in school.

    I used Math for Meds in school, can't find the book so I don't know who the author was, a good source though.

    Good luck

    Go to this web site. It uses Math for Meds.

    http://members.tripod.com/susanp3/sn...8_analysis.htm

    If this link doesn't work, use Google and put in Math for Meds.

    I can also vouch for this book! I am taking a summer dosage calculations class at my school that is optional (just to get head start on my first semester of the program). This book is meant to be self taught, but an instructor is always nice to have to answer any questions you may have. Overall, it explains concepts pretty well and there are LOTS of practice questions!

    Oh wow......you girls are lifesavers! I have been looking for a good flashcard program. And I definitely need to refresh the math for meds before classes start up again in a couple of months. Thank you so much!!!!
