I just finished my first semester of Nursing school. In the Fall, I will have to face Pharmacology and Clinical Nursing I. The class ahead of us told us how incredibly difficult Pharmacology is. Therefore, I would like to use my summer to study ahead and get familiar with the material. I would like to get a flash card set since I study best that way. However, I did some research and the reviews of most of the flash card sets, mentioned that they aren't going into enough detail
So, I was wondering if anyone knows a flash card set that really helped with the difficult material in Pharmacology?

Thank you all for your helpful inputs. We receive our syllabus always last minute so I won't know where to get the information from until the beginning of August. Does anyone have suggestions on a good textbook that I can use to make my own flash cards?
1) Lippincott's Illustrated Review: Pharmacology
- This excellent book will provide a concise overview of drug classes, mechanisms, major side effects, indications, etc.
2) Davis Drug Guide
- This will provide you with all the gory details of how to administer, dosages, interactions, etc.
To save cash, look for older editions... but they're both excellent references and worth buying the latest versions.
You could also use the info from my cards and then build your own cards from there.
