I'm hoping I can get opinions from fellow nursing students. We've just started dosage calcs in my term and I am beyond frustrated that our "textbook" is an online thing that seems to exist only to drive me crazy and doesn't have a physical book equivalent. I've been wanting to buy a book or study guide to help me along with dosage calcs. What are your recommendations?

Khan academy is good! I prefer the route of setting the info up into conversion factors because you can then end up crossing off units. Its pretty fool proof because if you end up with a unit that's not in the answer you know you went wrong somewhere. I rarely miss dosage calculation questions doing it that method.

I'm taking pharmacology this summer and we're using Ogden's Calculation of Drug Dosages- A work text. I'm not sure if it's the best one out there but I like it a lot.

What exactly do you like about it? And thanks, I'll look it up as well. :)

Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it. And I've looked up Khan academy as I'd never heard of them. :)
