I took my dosage calculation test today, and I'm fairly certain I didn't pass with the required 90%. I have two more opportunities to take the test. In order for me to learn math and how to do the problems I have to repeat the problems a million times over. This was just not possible in a class that only met 4 times. Once the semester starts I will get a tutor, but in the mean time can anyone offer any advice or tips on what helped them pass their dosage calculation test? Books with lots of problems, that type of thing? Thanks in advance!

agreed on the Practice, Practice, Practice.
There are several formulas you can use. Me, I prefer the "Dimensional Analysis" method because I never have to memorize a formula.
Google it and look for a video. In essence it puts everything in a fraction format, then you just cancel out the units, and multiply across, then divide
