Does anybody know if the Saunders 4th ed. c.d. is good for studying pharm? That is mostly what I have been using so I hope it's a decent tool for studying pharm that may be on the NCLEX.

yeah i think so! Cuz I bought the Kaplan need to know drug book for $12 on sale and when I see the drugs, I don't remember them as well as if I was to apply them to a question like in the practice questions.

I don't like the pharm sections in Saunders because for me, it's too much info without being related back to diseases. I feel like I'm reading through a drug book and retaining almost nothing. If you can retain it though, I think it's a good source.

I would recommend just doing the questions in the pharm section in the book and CD.

Thanks. I need a bit more review on pharm than I'll get from rationales though. I am finding the Mosby mneumonic flash cards helpful and the pharm section in the Exam Cram book is also really good for basic pharm review. Saunders definitely covers more, it's just not a good format for me and perhaps information overload.
