    Brought this book after starting medication calculation classes at nursing school Having struggled with maths in school I found this book really helpful in explaining the different methods for calculating tables, liquids medicines and I.V calculations step by step It comes with practice questions at the end of each section which is really helpful in getting me to remember and test myself I ve taken this book on placement with me a couple of times to help support me when assisting with medication calculations, its quite small and light so easy to fit in my bag Would strongly recommend

    Bought it to pass a numeracy test at university and it has helped me pass with flying colours I must admit, the book was at first not so clear and I only felt like this because I have been using another book.The book is easy to read and there are a lot of instructions, tests answer to check whether you understand things So, overall it gets a thumbs up from me because you get a good quality item for a reasonable price.

    I purchased this book for my return to nursing course The content is great The text is small,fine and too much on a single page which makes it very difficult to read
