I just purchased this book and was slightly disappointed by the size of it and also the fact that I had spent quite a lot of money on this book nearly 60.00 inc post and packaging , only to find the price stated on the back of the book was only 5.99 So I am a little unsure what the reasons are for such a price jump I would love to know The actual book itself is very informative and useful but I wish I had purchased it for the amount stated on the back of the book I do feel slightly ripped off Solving calculations in a busy environment can be tough and time consuming This quick reference guide, featuring basic maths concepts and medication administration, will help you take the problem out of problem solvingThe Nursing Health Survival Guides have evolved take a look at our our app for iPhone and iPad This is a great little book spiral bound for student nurses to keep in their pockets when they are on placements I would say given the information contained within the book it is suitable for 1st year nursing students It has a plastic coated cover also means it is easy to keep the little book clean This book is helpful in learning the basics for the calculation of drugs within a nursing hospital environment and comes in handy as a quick reference guide. They are small pocket size. My daughter was doubly happy Brilliant little pocket book with basic information, great for gaining a starting point in the subject or for a refresh of the subject Well written and well made. Great useful book Handy pocket mayhs I am very pleased with all my purchases over the last several month s you do an excellent job.Thank you,E Austin
