- by brownsugar35 Jan 16What's the best way to study its so much info?
- Jan 16 by jngo91I'm going to take pharmacology for the Spring 2013 semester. My textbook is Pharmacology for Nursing care by Lehne.
I also am utilizing several supplemental materials in order to really get the information to stick. I think pharmacology is going
to be very boring or very dry so these supplements will help me greatly.

- Jan 16 by jmintersomething that helped me was learning the classes of drugs first, them worry about major particular ones. as you learn separate systems, you will learn specifics on how those types of drugs work, what is contraindicated, s/s of adverse reactions, etc. and even then, it will not all stick. as you do clinicals you learn the meds you deal with most. if you learn the generic names, they mostly all have similarities. ex, beta blockers all end in "lol", ACEIs all end in "pril", and so forth. dont stress too bad, it will all come together towards the end.
- Jan 16 by Msre23People always say start a study group. I got mediquick flash cards they are helpful!! I want to start a pharm class group on facebook!!
- Jan 17 by Tim92I would highly suggest forming a study group with some classmates or use flashcards. Reading from your book or notes can be very boring, and for me it makes information harder to retain.
- Jan 17 by Msre23@Tim92 have you finished pharm?? And did you start out learning classifications?
