Summary

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.

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 !
Thank you!!

Just one word: Awesome!!!

If you could sum up Memorizing Pharmacology in three words, what would they be?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

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.

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.

Finally, an audiobook with correct pronunciations!

Would you consider the audio edition of Memorizing Pharmacology to be better than the print version?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

The Cardiode to Joy performance in the cardiac section is really well done, the book really makes sense from beginning to end.

Which character – as performed by James Gillies – was your favorite?

The ending where the mom and dad had to do CPR on their 3-month old was a tearjerker.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How to make pharmacology not suck.

P-1 student

I am a P-1 student, mom, and have all the responsibilities that a 39 year old returning student endures. I downloaded this book the summer before my P-1 year and listened while doing household chores. It has helped me so much during my first year to already have this information down and I could spend my time on the new information presented in class. The tips for remembering the immense amounts information in a short amount of time and only needing to review the drug cards for exams have contributed to my success in class and as a mother navigating the 4 intense years.

Very focused on american students

What did you like best about Memorizing Pharmacology? What did you like least?

I truly lie the idea of this book. Pharmacology names might be very hard to remember, and this book tries to help students by dividing the different pharmaceuticals into different classes, and explains the origins of their names. That makes it much easier to remember. It is also well red by the narrator.

The reason i gave it only three stars is that it is very focused on brand names, and since the brand names very a lot around the world, this really just makes the book useful for students and professionals practicing in the USA.

I would recommend it to American students, but not to student form other countries.

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.

Easy to Understand!

What made the experience of listening to Memorizing Pharmacology the most enjoyable?

This book is full of helpful tips to remember pharmacology. We have to learn so many drugs in pharmacy school it almost seems impossible. I like that Tony relates all the drug names to an easy story that we can recall. The quizzes at the end of each chapter are very helpful. I will continue to use them in the future.

What about James Gillies’s performance did you like?

His voice was great and nice to listen to.

Articulate and masterful approach to Pharmacology!

Where does Memorizing Pharmacology rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audiobook is the best one that I have listened to thus far! I believe that this piece of text can be described as "detail-oriented", "clever", and "unique". Dr. Guerra provides unique approaches to not only memorize medications with their associated drug classes and usage, but integrate these details in future practices.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Memorizing Pharmacology?

I found that the quizzes stood out in the audiobook. It allowed readers to practice their knowledge of topics and concepts covered by previous chapters.

What about James Gillies’s performance did you like?

He is an exceptional narrator, ensuring that each word is pronounced correctly and allowing the reader to follow along in an adequate manner.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This audiobook is meant to inform the reader, not so much laugh or cry as the question suggests. Dr. Guerra breaks down many medication names and concepts and allows readers to practice. He should be proud of his work, as it has allowed student pharmacists to gain an immense amount of knowledge in the field of pharmacology.
