I am in dire need for some websites, fact sheets, etc to help me with nursing math. I took pharmacology and passed with a B about 2 terms ago. We (my class) has not had a lot of math since then but now the rumor is for our summer class we will have to take a math test that we must past. The thing is I have never been good at math and I did do it before but my mind has went blank to how I even got the problems right before. I need help in remembering this. I am an A B student and I do not want to leave school over math problems.:spin:

Dosage Calculations: a Ration-Proportion Approach by Gloria D. Pickar is very good. I had the first edition and liked it, but I understand there is a newer edition out now. It starts out with basic math and works you up to med math. Very easy to understand.

Ratio and Proportion does work, but it is confusing try this:
My favorite web page about Dimensional Analysis.
I still don't understand why they teach don't teach both dimensional analysis and ratio. Ratio is easier to use for certain weight based questions.

just my 2 cents. dont use D over H x's Q. Use the ratio and you can never go wrong
