Question: which math dosage book is the best?

  1. I will be starting Nursing School-LVN in either Fall 2008 or Fall 2009 and I was wondering what math dosage book was the best? I know that I have awhile before I start it's just that I am horrible at math so I want to get a head start and really know my math by the time that I start Nursing school. It's embrassing but I figure that if I study now and keep it up until I start I will hopefully not struggle!!! This is my second career plus I have two boys 5 and 3 yrs. old and me and my husband want to buy a house soon so I have to do this right-No Pressure!!! Any advice or tips would be greatly apprecited, thanks!!!

    dosage calculations made incredibly easy! is very good.
    it is usually 40 buck at b&n. but you can get it @ amazon.com
    cheaper.

    here's the link:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...3102562&sr=8-3

    it would cost you less than 11 bucks including shipping. this is used but the same info.. no need to pay 40 bucks.

    I like "Math for Meds" by A. Curren. We used this textbook in my online pharmacology calculations course. It was very easy to follow.

    hi missy, i did not buy the book but i borrowed it from my friend last semester (pharmacology class) and used the practice tests . i really like all these "made incredibly easy" books. i even bought their nclex-pn review and it is very helpful. just one recommendation though, you will find out that you can save so much money by using amazon.com instead. you can still go to b&n store, check out the book then buy it from amazon. you can save as much as 50% sometimes. take care.
    i hope you get in next year.

    We use this book at my school. I am not saying it's the best, but it's the only one I have. I am going to buy that incredibly easy one form Amazon as well.
