5-0 out of 5 stars Handy reference
I didn't have this book during my P3 (3rd year of PharmD school) year; we used the text by Kradjan that had a patient-based format. DePiro's more traditional format makes it easier to find info quickly. The downloadable format of this text (which comes with the book) makes it even faster to find info. A downside would be books like these are out-of-date as soon as they're published, but I've been using the DePiro just fine for my P4 clerkships and plan to use Kradjan's as a doorstop. (I'm not really a kid)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for a great price
I received my order fairly quickly and the book was great. I would definately order from them again.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Standard by Which Others are Compared
It's difficult to write a review of this book because most of the people who are even thinking of buying it have probably used it already. They have seen it in the library, their professors have shown it to them, or it is required for the course they are taking.

2-0 out of 5 stars Get the 10th edition.
I can't say that I'm pleased with the new edition. The information is grossly disorganized, there are no introductory chapters, and important information has been omitted or dumbed down, e.g. the section on fat-soluble vitamins, specifically vitamin A.
5-0 out of 5 stars A complete Pharmacological Encyclopedia
This book is a complete pharmacological encyclopedia from its days of inception.It is useful to any physician as a desk reference.
3-0 out of 5 stars A rehash
I am a physician, and recently used the previous (10th) edition as an overview for a presentation I was preparing on opioid analgesics.We just got our new, 11th edition, and I embarked on a comparison of the chapters.To my astonishment, despite the considerable ongoing research in opioid pharmacology, the chapters were practically identical, with the new edition providing NO substantive new information.I cannot speak to the rest of this venerable reference, but this chapter was just a rehash (and a big disappointment). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Physician assistant student
This is a great book.I love how it isn't just about the drugs, but gives background on the diagnosis that you are treating.I think it is layed out well, and find it very useful.I notice a lot of pharm students are reviewing this but I think it is good for practitioner's as well.However, don't think this will fit in your labcoat pocket, it could but it is sorta heavy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding
I used this as a study guide for my PTCE. If you do so begin studying at least 5 months earlier than planned to truely understand and absorb what you will learn here in addition to your other study guides.

5-0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars for poor portability
I rate it 4.5 stars only because this book is way too big to carry to class--it's like putting a baby in your backpack. On top of the syllabi you have to lug around, the weight is ridiculous. In terms of the actual content, it's an excellent desktop resource. All drugs are organized by disease state. Literally, the drug Bible (tissue paper pages and all). I recommend it for at home/pharmacy use only, otherwise you might need a forklift.

5-0 out of 5 stars Applied Therapeutics
Not just a drug reference, this is a clinical book.... teaches critical thinking and application of drugs, recommended by many PharmD's. You'll use it for ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview
There is a very good reason this series is endorsed by the NPTA.Of the six or so books that I used to study for the exam, this was the most helpful by far.It reviews every topic on the exam, and is a great starting place to see what you need more work on.This is the book that got me a passing score on the exam, and I don't really think I can give it higher praise than that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great workbook
This book is a great study guide to prepare for the certification exam. The book is easy to read and it leaves out all the fluff that is in the other study books. After reading and doing the practice exams I found what my weaknesses were and was able to go back to my schoolbooks to strengthen those areas. I took the certification exam this month (March) and think I did fine; there are a lot of math questions in the exam and wish I spent more time in that area.

5-0 out of 5 stars AAS nursing student
i had an amazing teacher for medical dosage, and he recommended this book ( the department actually assigned a different book). this book was great, it makes learning fool proof. everything is explained in full, clear detail and makes it for an easy A grade.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
This is the book we used for my BSN program Dosage Calculation class and I thought it was great.It starts you from the beginning (fractions, ratios, etc) and goes from there.There is no need for a teacher when using this book, it explains things very well and in a simple, easy to read/understand manner.Excellent for the beginner.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great, but the same as the older edition
Lippincott Pharm is a fabulous book for medical students. It has the basics clearly outlined and nice tables to help you memorize them. The text is brief and clear. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it seems to be identical to the older edition, except that the little diagrams are in color. It's a lot more expensive than the older edition (millennium update edition) though! Take a look at the two together before you decide whether you want to shell out the money for the newer one.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
This book is amazing..Its so easy to read and so easy to understand. Goes through the chapters smoothly, providing all the information needed. Its especially helpfull to students but also can be used as a reference book. Most importandly, the illustration is impressive!!The tables, drawings, sketches and little pictures make it easier to memorize importand concepts and basic information and thus can make pharmacology fun!!

5-0 out of 5 stars very good for coursework
I read this book along with my syllabus from BOD. This clears up some of the topics that aren't presented too clearly during BOD. It helped me do well in pharmacology. For the boards, this book should just be used as a reference if there are any concepts you don't understand in first aid. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Getting into the nitty-gritty chapter of your life
This book immediately gets into the nuts & bolts of the pharmacotherapeutics with cool questions plus amazing rationales. My advice? Study your school lecture notes & review this book at the same time and you'll be amazed at what you've achieved in a month's time.

3-0 out of 5 stars questions too indepth compared to the NAPLEX
I've been out of school for 14 years and erroneously believed the NAPLEX was more clinical than it was 14 years ago. I just took it in July 2005 and I can NOT believe how basic the questions are!!! this book will give you a good idea of your area of weakness.The few "clinical" questions in the NAPLEX were so elementry, I can't believe I wasted all that time and money on APHA's plus Appleton & Lange pharmacy review questions book as well as Kaplan's q-bank questions. I've been specializing in oncology for the past few years and I was not familiar with any of the new drugs on the market. Of the over 2000+ "test" questions between all 3 study aids, there were about 5 in my NAPLEX. I do a lot of calculations in my area of practice so I guess the study aids can help those who need help in pharmacy math. There were quite a few calculations in the "clinical" part. If I had taken this test last year without "studying", I believe I would had done just as well. If you were awake while practicing or in school...the NAPLEX is a piece of cake. There were quite a few 120+ scores.I wish someone would had informed me.
3-0 out of 5 stars Get A Real Review Book Instead
This book is great for quizzing you so you know what subjects to brush up on. THe CD can also get you used to the CAT format. But having taken the NAPLEX after using this book and several others, you will never see these questions on the NAPLEX. The chances of seeing the same question is almost zilch. Its better to know your key subjects well (HTN, DM, HIV, etc) then learn facts here and there about everything. That's what this book does for you. Its a compilation of specific questions. I recommend a review book such as APHA's Comprehensive Pharmacy Review, or Kaplans Naplex review instead. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Terrible binding
The binding of the thick and heavy book is terrible. Many pages just fell apart about one month or so after I bought it. Also, I found there are some problems with its organization. For example, it is kind of confusing to describe both benzodiazepines and barbiturates together.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Awful, Not Great
There are many good things to say about this text. It is through, has great cross-references, and is relatively cheap. Sadly, however, that is pretty much where the positive ends and the negative begins.
1-0 out of 5 stars Awful
This text is required at my medical school. The text is dense and unapproachable, but that isn't my main complaint-the organization is TERRIBLE. One drug can be covered in multiple different chapters, but none of the chapters really have a great description! For example, B blockers are covered under "Autonomic Drugs", "Anti-Hypertensive Agents", and "Heart Failure Drugs"... just for starters! Anywhere you can use a B blocker, there's a separate discussion. Just give me ONE chapter on B blockers that actually talks about all of their uses!

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have!
This little guide may seem confusing at first glance, but it is quite helpful once you figure out how to use it!You'll still need a prescribing reference for dosages, etc. but this gives you a place to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must on the wards
Always a great help for any medical student or resident, especially in primary care. If you're going to be culturing something, you need to know what to treat empirically with until the C&S comes back, and that's where Sanford's is a great help. It's not quite an ID consult, but it works until they show up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great daily reference--in clinic and hospital
Great quick pocket reference, use it daily for both out-pt and in-pt infectious disease treatment.Details first line therapy (and includes pediatric doses), and gives concise clinical criteria for back-up choices (eg. treatment failures, associated comorbidities, drug allergic patients).

3-0 out of 5 stars Another large NAPLEX review
This is another large review book for the NAPLEX.The book may be too detailed to read from cover to cover in time for the exam, but it came free with APhA membership during our final year in pharmacy school.I used this APHA book and the Comprehensive Review of Pharmacy (Shargel) to obtain background information on topics that kept eluding me during practice exams with Appleton & Lange.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just a good book..
This book is a good one, but has one little problem, the book doesn't have much coherence because there are too many people writting the book. You can note the difference of redaction between the chapters because were written for different person and that's what make the book very difficult to read, because one chapters are good, but others are very bad.
5-0 out of 5 stars Clarification about the edition
This is the 10th edition, published in 2001. Not quite as 'out-of-date' as suggested by the previous reviewer. It is, however, dificult to keep these texts current.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good....but out of date!
"Goodman & Gilman" has been the staple of pharmacology for many years, and with good reason. While I agree with the other reviewers that it is the gold standard, in the "old days" the book was updated about every 5 years, and this one came out in 1996. Given that the book probably took a couple of years to revise, the information is close to 10 years out of date! As is stated in the Notice on p. xviii, "Medicine is an ever-changing science." I have been waiting for the 10th Edition for some time now...! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Handbook of Pharmaceutical Excipients
This is an excellent book that contains every phamaceutical excipient that I have ever had the need to know about.I work for a dietary supplement manufacturer and we quite often get calls from customers that want to knowall about all those "other ingredients" that are listed onproduct cartons.The book has a section for each excipient and eachexcipient has the following sections: Nonproprietary Names, Synonyms,Chemical Name and CAS Registry Number, Empirical Formula and MolecularWeight, Structural Formula, Functional Category, Applications inPharmaceutical Formulation or Technology, Description, PharmacopeialSpecifications, Typical Properties, stability and Storage Conditions,Incompatibilities, Method of Manufacture, Safety, Handling Precautions,Regulatory Status, Pharmacopeias, Related Substances, Comments, SpecificReferences, General References, and Authors.While I have a background inBiology, I found several of the sections to be easy to understand byseveral of our employees that do not have a science background.While,still, there was highly technical/scientific information as well.Eachexcipient's information is contained in 2-4 pages. The book is arrangedalphabetically which makes finding information easy.In addition, itcontains an index that is very well constructed.For example:If you arelooking for an Emulsifying Agent, the index lists all the excipients thatcan be used for that purpose. I can't say enough how easy this book is touse.Its information is pared down to the essential text, and is chockedfull of graphs, charts and microscopic photos of the excipients. ... Read more
