This is part of a series called LPN Threads, where most of their textbooks are straight to the point with no fancy words to confuse. I happened to discover this book while searching around and eventually, I started purchasing several books from this thread series that served me very well.

I Took Pharm this last spring for my R.N. and I used the"Core Concepts of Pharmacology" with the authors "Norman and Holland. It was GREAT! made it easy because of the way it was set up. The pictures made it come alive for me. I even closed my HOLE"S Anatomy and Phsiology book and used this sometimes for my A&P II exams. It just made it easier for me. Hope this helps!:yeah:

In addition to what the above posters recommended, I would recommend investing in a good medical dictionary, Mosby's is my favorite one. That way, when you encounter an unfamiliar medical term, you can look it up and often see a photo of it as well. You can't avoid the medical terms, as they will be there on your nursing exams, on NCLEX and in your career. Good luck!
