Hope this helps. You can find alot of info at www.rxlist.com
in the event that the instructor's give us an answerable question
I am going to bookmark this site. This question was located in the "resource manual" of the program I am in. It was under the "math practice test" section. It was stated that if we could answer all the questions in this section with an 80% we would be ready to take the medications examination. We will have no med ref's with us, just their piece of paper and a calculator (thank God they realize calculator's exist). However, the exam would be FAILED at 80% (most likely due to these outdated, mis-stated, questions) so here I am trying to get 80% on the practice....
Now, mind you, I had to PAY about $10 for this photocopied "resource manual" full of wonderful things like this question. I have found numerous fallacies within this $10 mandatory publication, this particular question being one. In some instances, they want us to answer with gr (grains) using roman numerals (their answer) and others used 1.5 rather than iss. So, what the (insert swear word here) do they want??!!
I spoke with the instructor today, and they are "re-working" to update it. Yeah, okay, but what about ME?? I take this book as GOSPEL about the program! They have meds in here that are so outdated it is ludicrous to learn them, and too numerous to list here.
At first I was lost, now I am merely PO'd at the distraction.
:chuckle Vent over... carry on... I know I will get through / over this but meanwhile, this is a PASS/FAIL test !!! Thus, the stupidity encountered on test ? no's 44 and 50, the ones I posted here. BRAIN IS FRIED!
