This book is designed to help students review pharmacology and to prepare for both regular course examinations and board examinations. The eleventh 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).
