Publisher's Summary

This fast and easy pharmacology review through mnemonics recognizes that many future nurses, doctors, physician assistants, and pharmacists (chemists) have families, jobs, and other responsibilities. Do you have time enough time to make 100 percent sure you will pass in the classroom or on the board exam? For most students taking the NCLEX, NAPLEX, USMLE Step-1, PANCE, GPHC, or KAPS exam, the answer is no. 

I wrote this mnemonic guide as an audiobook first to help you remember pharmacology drug names and principles quickly. While in the classroom your professors might say memorization doesn't matter, but you can't bring outside material to the board exam, so for this test, you do need to work on memory training. You already know the consequences of failing a class or board exam, so let's make sure that doesn't happen by getting pharmacology organized in your head once and for all.

This book helped me

I enjoyed the audible as well as the book, it helped me to remember the different types of drugs by the mnemonics that were listed as well as what each drug and its side effects are. I would definitely recommend this book as well as the audible for anyone who needs help with pharmacology and another way to remember these different types of drugs as well as what the side effects are.

Lucyjam.Pham student

When I started my class it was very confusing and I got a little frustrated trying to memorize 200 drugs in you blue book Memorizing Pharmacology. It was up until I learned using your Mnemonics that everything started sinking in my head .I like this book so much because I can listen it anywhere.I have so far learned new ones in this new book. I like how you come up with Mnemonics that really suits into place like tumor medication Mnemonics FLAWEDATLAST, or sedatives APEZZ , cardiac drugs ABCD and birth control SAVETONIGHT.I like cardiac the most because ABCD is also used a lot in emergency situations. So think of heart being an important organ.

Great Audible Book

I have found this audible easy to listen to and love the clever use of the mnemonics used because it helps me to remember not only my drug names but what they are used for. My favorite three mnemonics in this audible so far are BECALM (medications used to reduce anxiety), CALMEDADHD, and PAINNMEDS.

Very helpful!

I really enjoyed the different mnemonics in this book! It’s very helpful if you have time to sit down and write out the different ones given. Some of them are really odd which makes you remember them even better!

Great source for NAPLEX and CPJE studying!!

While studying for NAPLEX and CPJE and before using this audiobook, I had a hard time memorizing drug classes, brand and generic names, and side effects because it just felt like it was information overload. It was easy to listen to while driving to and from work. I didn't find myself falling asleep like I did with other study material. This was great for creating easy to remember mnemonics and really grouped things in a way that was easy to recall. I would recommend to all pharmacy, nursing, and medical students because there's just so much to learn in such a little time and this really helps!!

So Helpful!!

This audiobook is not only extremely helpful to listen to on my commute but it keeps me entertained! Dr. Guerra really connects with the audience and I'm actually retaining information. As a P3 about to start rotations, this has been such a help and I feel much more confident walking into my rotations. I highly recommend this audiobook!!

Great Memorizing Material

This is such a great memorizing material. Adding the side effects makes learning convenient. My favorite mnemonics are "PROVIDE MAGAZINE" and "MY MY MY FREAKING HEAD HURTS OUCH OUCH." They are very helpful in remembering medications for vomiting and opioid drugs. I would recommend this book to all pharmacology students.

Excellent memory tools, needs supplement

This book is filled with excellent pharmacology memory tools. However, it is lacking a supplemental with all of the mnemonics. The author states that the book is written to be spoken, that being said, with modern technology it would be just as easy to purchase the electronic version and have it read by text-to-speech while being able to look at the text. Without the supplemental visual, I found it difficult to memorize.

great utilization

As a pharmacy student, i found this book (specifically mnemonics) memorable making it useful. I would definitely recommend this for studying purposes as i used it while commuting. I will mention that the chapters are not labeled and it is categorized by organ systems so it is difficult to find exact pharmacology that i would want to relisten and write down. Overall very useful.

PharmD Student

For anyone studying pharmacology, this audiobook is great! Would recommend for anyone who is approaching it for the first time or has had trouble learning to get a snapshot of pharmacology through mnemonics that are very easy to listen to and learn. I love how it’s broken down by disease states and groups drug classes together!
