    Have you guys been given pages to read or anything about your meds/calculations. If you can convert between measurements and cross multiply you wont have too much of a problem. Good Luck

    Chicklet2, Thanks for your response! We have squares that we were given at the beginning of the program but I do not know anything about them or what they mean. We have not been given any kind of instruction though because the class does not start until October 18, I was just trying to look at the book and get some pointers before the class actually started. If it is mostly math I should not have a problem, I am just trying to figure out how you can remember that this med goes with this problem etc. Anyways, thanks!
