Pharmacology cards

  1. I understand that the premade drug cards are a good way to learn the various drugs. I checked at Barnes & Noble & see that there are at least 3 different sets of drug cards in addition to the many drug books.

    I don't want to make my own. There is just too much information to have to do that. Can you recommend a drug card set that is better than the others? I don't know what to look for. They all seem to be about the same price, around $35.

    I made my own with powerpoint in order to focus on what I needed to know for my pharm class, but I was tempted to buy the Mosby's 2007 or the Nurse Med Deck...both looked very good and I have heard good things about both.

    I have the Mosby drug cards and the Mediquick drug cards. I also have Nursing drug books that I use for clincials (this is what I end up using for everything!) I liked the Mediquick format the best, but Mosby often had a drug the Mediquick cards were missing.

    Overall, I don't use the cards at all because each semester we have pharm tests over listed drugs and we either use the school's pre-made drug cards or make our own, as they only want you to know certain info. In fact, I'm making pharm cards for 3rd semester right now. This allows you to include just the info that you need to know. There is just too much info on the cards to learn & there is usually something we will be tested on that is not included on the card. So I guess it depends on what you will be responsible for learning. I hope this helps.

    Additionally, I think I learn as much making the cards as I do studying from them.
