About the Author:

Gloria D. Pickar, R.N., Ed.D., is President and Chief Academic Officer of Compass Knowledge Group in Orlando, Florida. She is a former Academic Dean at Seminole State College in Sanford, Florida. She is also the author of nine editions of best-selling DOSAGE CALCULATIONS.

Review:

"The writing style is straightforward, clear, and concise. Explanations are easy to follow--a student could use this text as self-study. Readability of the chapters is very good - easy to follow from one concept to the next. The reading level is appropriate for my students. The coverage is comprehensive and the organization is very effective. I have used Pickar's text for over 10 years and find the order very effective."

"Great pictures of real drug labels and actual syringes. Well organized from basic to more advanced. I think it (the book) is very good and will recommend to my students."

"I found the use of Math Tip, Quick Review, Rule, Remember, Caution, and Critical Thinking Skills to be extremely beneficial. They reinforce the content as well as learning style of the text. I feel my student could greatly benefit from these areas. The use of reasoning skills assist the student to understand material. The lay out of the content, ERROR, Possible Scenario, Potential Outcome, and Prevention are areas I have not seen express in this way in other texts. This will assist the individual student in understanding the potential outcomes of their actions with every chapter."
