As stated below, I received my dosage calculations book in the mail today. I have already completed chapter one and started on chapter 2 ( both review chapters) I am just concerned about how far ahead I should get. My class does not start till July and I am bored at work. I could EASILY finish the entire book before the class begins. Is this a wise thing to do???

I know that I will have to do the assigned homework once the class starts, but the book is a workbook type set up. Opinions please :p

Never knew there was a dosage calculation book. Good to know. The math is likely one of the easier parts of nursing school. Do you have a class that covers only medication dosages?

We use "Dimensional Analysis for Meds" it has a workbook type set up to it.

I agree that it is not hard at all, then again math comes easy to me :)
