Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Another thing that really gets me about this book is that I have had more than one student comment on how condescending the author seems to be towards the reader. I want my students to have equal parts respect and enthusiasm towards the pharmacy technician profession and this book really seems crush their enthusiasm by the way in which it is worded.
Also, be cautious the workbook and certification review book that go along with this book (sold separately) do not follow the same techniques and principles in the core book so that also can become very confusing for technician students and teachers.
Personally, I would recommend using almost any other book on the market if you are looking for a good core book. After reviews from the teachers at my school we will now be switching our core books.
Very good condition.
