Publisher's summary

As a working parent of four-year-old triplet daughters, I understand time management presents one of the greatest barriers to my pharmacology students' success. Many students feel that cold sense of overwhelm and information overload.

This easy-to-listen guide organizes pharmacology into manageable, logical steps you can fit in short pockets of time. The proven system helps you memorize medications quickly and form immediate connections. With mnemonics from students and instructors, you'll see how both sides approach learning.

After you've finished the 200 Top Drugs in this book, reading pharmacology exam questions will seem like reading plain English. You'll have a new understanding of pharmacology to do better in class, clinical and your board exam. You'll feel the confidence you'd hoped for as a future health professional. For patients and caregivers, this book provides a means to memorize your own medications to better communicate with your health providers.

Well That Was... Useful?

Any additional comments?

Some hints to helping remember the top 200 drugs. Really helps you think about the words used to make drug names. Oddly includes all the brand names for drugs which isn't useful for a student learning about them.

Goodbye med errors

What made the experience of listening to Memorizing Pharmacology the most enjoyable?

Many drug names have common endings. Learning those specific endings will help with memorizing what class they are in and what they are prescribed for. This audio provides an organized approach to memorizing the top 200 drugs, along with examples that help with the memorization. Nurses must know everything about medications they’re giving their patients in order to provide the safest care. It is important to prevent medication errors and knowing endings can do just that.

Great!

This audiobook is super helpful. I struggled understanding the stems and the meaning behind them, which is super important in the real world to not rely solely on memorization of the individual drugs. After listening through the content of this book, I felt I had a better grasp on the material. I often listen to it during my morning commute to class which I have noticed I feel much more prepared. I highly recommend!

Great Review before NAPLEX

I got this to listen to while on my hour commute to and from work to help review the Top 200 before my NAPLEX exam. I haven't taken the exam yet but I certainly think this is helping!

Read it out of order

This was a very good book. It has several bits of helpful information throughout. However, I would suggest reading it out of order.
Start with chapter 28 of the Audio book sections, and write down all 200 drug names.
Then listen to all the review material that starts at chapter 29 to get a basic overview of what you are diving into. THEN go back to chapter 1 and work through the book. By taking down the drug names, then listening to the review before you get started, the rest of the book will make more sense. :-)
