    Brush up on the fractions, decimals, percentages, multiplication, and division. Basically, the medication math and dosage calculations do not require any advanced mathematics. You should do well, as long as you are very informed regarding basic math. Good luck, and strive!

    Also, get yourself familiar with conversions from one method of measurement to another.

    I called on my older brother (an RN with 25 yrs experience) to help with the math. He told me he hadn't used it since completing classes. But did say to just bone up on basic conversions, I did and I passed. since then I haven't had to use it either.

    Congratulations! I don't start my program until august- but I'm so ready. My school uses Math for Meds and I just picked it up,so I can brush up over the summer. In the two years Ive had two algebras and a statistics- so I have to go back and freshen up on basic math. Like everyone else posted: fractions,percent,multiply,division, and conversions. Good luck.
