Comments about Nursing Calculations:
This book was great to refresh my maths skills and gear me up for Nursing and medication management. It is a well organised resource and identifies any issues by self test results, then directs you to the relevant chapter for extra work and review. As 100% is required in all drug calculation test, I was very nervous. This book ensured I made the grade. I highly recommend it to all Nursing students
