5.0 out of 5 stars Great textbook. Good price. Nov. 27 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great textbook for any pharmacy student. It has a TON of info about the covered disease states and gives a good overview of drug therapy options that are up-to-date with current guidelines. I'm sure other health professions (physicians) could also make good use of this book if they wanted to look up drug therapy for various conditions. The price on Amazon was also better than I would have paid at the bookstore at my university. The textbook is very large, so expect that if you plan on carrying it around (I wouldn't recommend carrying it around).

2.0 out of 5 stars Before you buy, realize this textbook still contains JNC-7 ... Sept. 10 2014

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Before you buy, realize this textbook still contains JNC-7 guideliines not the current JNC-8 making it severely out of date on hypertension guidelines. Given this information I would try to hold out for the 10th edition, which I hope would be coming out soon. I will probably be returning mine.

3.0 out of 5 stars the printed chapters are really good and well organized make the reading experience pretty enjoyable Oct. 26 2014
By Kai Zheng - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book get thiner and thiner compared with previous editions because they put more and more chapters online at accesspharmacy. I bought the book because I wanna read the real book, the printed chapters are really good and well organized make the reading experience pretty enjoyable, while the online part annoy me. You have to click to read each figure and table, which I believe more important than words... Overall, it is OK but since you cannot carry it easily anyway, why not make the reading experience better by printing all of the chapters into the book?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for mechanisms of action. NO KINDLE PAGE #s! Nov. 24 2014
By jps - Published on
Bought this Kindle book as a requirement for nurse practitioner school at NYU. Good for learning how to prescribe and who to prescribe to. Poor for actually trying to understand molecular action of drugs and pathways. For mechanisms of action and physiology, I used Lippincott Illustrated Reviews: Pharmacology 6th ed.
Also the Kindle edition DOES NOT HAVE PAGE #s!! Very difficult to follow along if the prof assigns certain pages.

I've been out of pharmacy school for about 20 years. It helps me keep up with all the changes in the treatment of most common disease states.
