Katzung & Trevor’s Pharmacology Examination and Board Review,12th Edition Pdf Book Description:
This book is designed to help students review pharmacology and to prepare for both regular course examinations and board examinations. The twelfth edition has been revised to make such preparation as active and efficient as possible. As with earlier editions, rigorous standards of accuracy and currency have been maintained in keeping with the book’s status as the companion to the Basic & Clinical Pharmacology textbook. This review book divides pharmacology into the topics used in most courses and textbooks. Major introductory chapters (eg, autonomic pharmacology and CNS pharmacology) are included for integration with relevant physiology and biochemistry. The chapter-based approach facilitates use of this book in conjunction with course notes or a larger text. We recommend several strategies to make reviewing more effective (Appendix I contains a summary of learning and test-taking strategies that most students find useful). First, each chapter has a short discussion of the major concepts that underlie its basic principles or the specific drug group, accompanied by explanatory figures and tables. The figures are in full color and some are new to this edition.
Students are advised to read the text thoroughly before they attempt to answer the study questions at the end of each chapter. If a concept is found to be difficult or confusing, the student is advised to consult a regular textbook such as Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, 14th edition. Second, each drug-oriented chapter opens with an Overview that organizes the group of drugs visually in diagrammatic form. We recommend that students practice reproducing the overview diagram from memory. Third, a list of High-Yield Terms to Learn and their definitions is near the front of most chapters. Make sure that you are able to define those terms. Fourth, many chapters include a Skill Keeper question that prompts the student to review previous material and to see links between related topics. We suggest that students try to answer Skill Keeper questions on their own before checking the answers that are provided at the end of the chapter.We recommend that this book be used with a regular text. Basic & Clinical Pharmacology, 14th edition , follows the chapter sequence used here. However, this review book is designed to complement any standard medical pharmacology text. The student who completes and understands Pharmacology: Examination & Board Review will greatly improve his or her performance and will have an excellent command of pharmacology.
