    The book "Dimensional Analysis for meds" came with a CD tutorial that taught me how to do dimensional analysis for all med problems. It was a true life saver!

    And as crazy as this sounds, YouTube it! That's what got me through my prereq math class and it is has helped me with dosage calculations as well!

    I believe my question is being misunderstood. I need to find a medical calculations class to take preferably online. I have checked the local community college but classes are full. Please help.

    I have never heard of a separate dosage calculations course. Mine was integrated into Nursing Pharmacology, and you couldn't take that at my school unless you were in the nursing program.

    If you have passed algebra, you should not need a separate class to do med calculations. That's precisely why you have algebra as a prerequisite. I've never heard of a separate class either-- it's integrated into the pharm course, if at all.

    As part of the nursing curriculum, I can understand that. Not as prerequisites for admission, though.

    It all depends on where you live. In Georgia we have separate dosages calculations courses in LPN and RN school. I took it by DVD course in before I started my RN program.
