question about drugs...

...study aids that is! We're starting pharmacology next semester, and there's no time like the present to start a good study guide arsenal!

I've heard Davis Drug cards are great to use. What do you recommend? I'm having trouble finding any Davis Drug cards on Amazon, but have found the following three. The Pharm Phlash cards received the best reviews on Amazon.






Any other recommended study aids?

I just made my own. The process of writing down the information helped me learn also. Every time a new drug class was introduced I made a card with the overarching theme. Everytime a new drug was introduced I made it's own card.

We use Mosby's drug cards for the meds we're passing to patients. The electronic drug cards from the CD are printable and can be really handy when you have more than one patient to pass meds for (my instructors have always told us to highlight or underline the action and indication of the medication for the patient). There's a lot of information on them though; I'm not sure if they're really good for studying from, but they are a really good reference.


I'm taking pharm next semester too (is it weird that we're taking it 4 semesters into the program?), so tell me if whichever study aids you get are any good!

I have Mosbys and I love them. I also bought Pharmacology Made Easy. They have helped me soooooo much!

Yes I have seen Howard's End along with every Jane Austin movie ever made including the BBC versions which, in my opinion, are better than the big studio versions. I'm such a nerd. lol

I have heard Mosby's cards are good. You can't find Davis??? I guess that shows how long ago I used them.. maybe they don't make them anymore?
