This superb tutorial text provides the basis of a strong foundation in pharmaceutical practices. Small, readily learned units of information are presented with verification exercises, chapter questions, and solutions. Various types of compounding problems involving mathematical procedures
are presented for practical application of the material. Some solutions require conversions between measuring systems. Many problems are solved by the method of "ratio and proportion." Only simple arithmetic is required; the challenge is determining the given, the required, and the necessary steps in between. This is a valuable tool for students of pharmacology and related health sciences, and as a refresher for medical personnel.
