    DescriptionThe ability to calculate drug doses accurately and quickly is an essential skill. This best-selling book uses a diagnostic test to pinpoint any weaknesses in the basic arithmetic required and is followed by specific exercises to remedy them. Examples are drawn from clinical practice, and explanations and graded exercises (with answers) cover the calculations required to administer tablets, mixtures and injections; to arrive at different drip rates; and to administer paediatric dosages safely.

    Review quote
    "I welcome the 7th edition of this brilliant book and highly recommend it. The arithmetic is based on calculations that are regularly used by the caring profession, namely kilograms, grams, milligrams, micrograms, litres and millilitres. The authors demonstrate several methods of converting these various measurements into each other achieved by worked examples. These are then followed by numerous questions for the readers to answer themselves; the answers are at the back of the book. This invaluable 'hands on' book should be read as a refresher by anyone who is involved in medication and is a must for those who are new to the caring profession." Distance Learning Tutor.Journal of Community Nursing. May 2007. Vol 21 issue 5
