As a working parent of four-year-old triplet daughters, I understand time management presents one of the greatest barriers to my pharmacology students' success. Many students feel that cold sense of overwhelm and information overload.
This easy-to-listen guide organizes pharmacology into manageable, logical steps you can fit in short pockets of time. The proven system helps you memorize medications quickly and form immediate connections. With mnemonics from students and instructors, you'll see how both sides approach learning.
After you've finished the 200 Top Drugs in this book, reading pharmacology exam questions will seem like reading plain English. You'll have a new understanding of pharmacology to do better in class, clinical and your board exam. You'll feel the confidence you'd hoped for as a future health professional. For patients and caregivers, this book provides a means to memorize your own medications to better communicate with your health providers.

"One of a kind!"
I love the narrator, the flow, the mnemonics, and the simplicity. Highly recommended!!!! As a medical student, I can confidently say that this book is one of a kind when it comes to learning Pharm. First book I've come across that is not intimidating.
great review for someone whose been "away" from practice for awhile. Entertaining and well presented.
"Just one word: Awesome!!!"
Thank you Dr. Guerra, you made Memorizing Pharmacology an enjoyable read!
I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend it to anyone in the medical field. I also recommend the audible version because it helped me with the pronunciations.
"Finally, an audiobook with correct pronunciations!"
There are many names in pharmacology that seem unpronounceable, os it's not as much that the audio is better than the print version as much as helpful to have with the print version.
The Cardiode to Joy performance in the cardiac section is really well done, the book really makes sense from beginning to end.
The ending where the mom and dad had to do CPR on their 3-month old was a tearjerker.
How to make pharmacology not suck.
"Suplemental to Nursing Pharmacology"
This is great to listen to before you go into Pharmacology for nursing. I have a medical background, but this still was a fantastic refresher and went well with in class studies.
"Well That Was... Useful?"
Some hints to helping remember the top 200 drugs. Really helps you think about the words used to make drug names. Oddly includes all the brand names for drugs which isn't useful for a student learning about them.
"Easily holds my interest"
Yes.This book is easy to follow along with, it holds my interest. I am on my 4th reading of the book, and I learn something new every time!
James makes it is to retain the knowledge with his down to Earth English.
The narrator, his voice has a lot of depth and he adds character to the book. James makes it easy to learn the information, and his stories peek my interest.
When on my second listening I was able to give the answers before he said them!
This is a great book if you are trying to learn the top 200 drugs for the PTCE.
"very helpful "
I listen to it in my leisure time. It is so fun. i leatn with no pressure on me. just like any story.
"Good adjunct to studying for pharmacology class"
Yes, but only if you're studying pharmacology.
I like how the author grouped the drugs by physiological system of action. Then, he breaks them down within groups by mechanism of action, etc. It does make them easier to remember.
Not really, but it isn't very long and didn't take long to get through.
I would certainly recommend this for any student who has time to listen while commuting, housecleaning, exercising, etc. I will certainly listen to this more than once!
"Review for pharm"
The narrator with a British accent for some reason really distracted me. I think this choice of narrator would have been better for a really great novel or something. It was very hard to focus on. This book also is way better to look at and read than to listen to ...there are many hyphens and other distracting things. It's hard to follow on the audio properly.
"Fantastic narration ... Great story.. Very useful"
I found out about this book through a social media. I am preparing for my pre-reg pharmacy exam (uk). I was looking for something very much like this!! Though some of the brands, dose & drug schedules we use in uk are different than USA; the book is still very useful!!
I got so hooked up with the book and I finished the whole narration in one day! Helpful .. Will deffo recommend !
