Hello, I hope that everyone is having a nice evening. I was wondering if any one could recommend a good book that would help prepare me for a dosage calculations test?? Thanks so much for any responses.

I am not sure how your school is going to teach it... there are two basic methods from what I am getting from these two different books!
My school uses Dimensional Analysis for Meds.

We use Calculate with Confidence by Deborah Gray Morris (made by Mosby though). It's a nice workbook with tons of practice questions. It also comes with a CD. We've used it every semester so far, so it will take you all the way through.
Doesn't your school require a text on this? Weird........
I bought a book....Clinical Calculations With Applications to General and Specialty Areas. I opened it once. I have passed the D&S test both semesters in my class by using pure dimensional analysis (Chemistry style) on all my math problems. I don't have errors in units ever. My only errors are if I forget a conversion factor.
