    DescriptionThe new edition of "Dosage Calculations for Veterinary Nurses and Technicians" continues to explain common mathematical principles in veterinary terms. With the introduction of the Evolve platform, both student and qualified nurses or technicians benefit from an interactive site where they can test their knowledge with interactive questions and quizzes; while instructors can create their own quizzes and tasks to use as aids in their teaching. Drawing upon his extensive experience, Terry Lake also provides a method of conversion that simplifies equations and removes the necessity of memorizing formulae. Terry Lake is also joined in this second edition by Nicola Green, an experienced instructor in dosage calculations who has devised the Evolve component.The text uses a common-sense approach to clinical situations faced by every student and qualified practitioner, highlighting common errors and providing tips for avoiding potential pitfalls. This extremely useful text takes the student from the secure ground of decimals and percentages, through to the uncharted terrain of statistics and dimensional analysis all in an easily accessible and user-friendly style. This book remains an indispensable companion for all who administer medication to animals.

    Review quote
    "This is a head-banging subject, which many try to steer clear of, made easy and fun - I wish there had been a book published of this kind when I was undergoing my veterinary nursing training. Every veterinary practice should have this affordable, easy-to-read book in its library, and it is a must for training practices. The foreword hits home the importance of mathematics in the veterinary world. The 18 chapters are easily readable, with step-by-step instructions, and well-illustrated with relevant photographs and diagrams... Each chapter starts with an introduction, learning objectives and a calcualtion example. Once the reader has grasped the theory, he or she can then practise the calculations. Calculation errors commonly made in practice are highlighted and explained in plain terms, enabling readers to improve their practical skills. Chapters 8 and 18 are important chapters for student animal nursing assistants (ANAs). Chapter 8 covers calculations for oral medications, which may help with the written exams, while chapter 18 covers mean, median and mode averages, which may assist with the client survey case log." Melissa Mantle VN, Veterinary Nursing, December 2004
