undefinedi really bombed out on my iv calcualtions eam yesterday. i feel like a dork.. can someone give me some good websites or a good iv calculations book i can use.. i have to get through this course...
well there are some in the class that know what they are doing.. but really dont have the time to help me out. I found out about the test... one day before it was suppose to be given so I didnt have time to really get into the studing like I wanted to...
there is a book called "IV's for Dummies", or something like that, but it costs about $35. You might try your school library and copy pages that are pertinent. I bet anxiety just overwhelmed you. Once the light turns on you will find yourself hoping your tests have math in them---only one answer!!
I haven't even started school yet and I am worried about anything mathematical. I'm hanging on to the websites posted! Thanks!

I was totally freaking when I had a big drug calculation test earlier this semester, too! I ended up doing well, but I'm rusty now b/c I haven't been keeping up with it.
Here's another page of drug calc links: http://nursing.northharriscollege.co...tion_links.cfm
I went to my local CC and checked out several drug calc books to use their practice problems in since my text really didn't have that many. I needed to do them over and over and over to get the hang of it.
Good luck! And I agree to ask about tutors, etc. from your advisor. Our pharm teacher held an extra review session for the people who didn't pass it, and will give extra help, etc. if you ask for it.
