MCQs in Pharmaceutical Calculations

MCQs in Pharmaceutical Calculations 1st EdBook Reviews: The Nuffield Review of 14–19 Learning questioned staff at 16 universities and reported that university admissions tutors and lecturers believe that admitted students are increasingly less capable. There was particular concern about standards in mathematics. Within this report Wilde et al. report, as a matter of general opinion, that students reach university with a lower level of numeracy than in the past. In addition, there is a perception among higher education lecturers of a general decline in mathematical fluency, as well as general concerns about basic numeracy skills. It was reported that some lecturers are forced to postpone starting undergraduate courses so that students could be ‘brought up to speed’.

There was particular concern about numerical competence in those subjects that rely on mathematical knowledge and the ability to apply concepts. This applies to mathematics degrees, of course, but also to engineering, business studies, IT, chemistry, physics and medical sciences, such as pharmacy. Although such concerns may seem a recent phenomenon, those teaching life science undergraduates expressed their growing anxieties that many of their entrants were no longer adequately equipped with many of the basic skills that broadly define a numerate individual as early as 1999.

It is intended that, through use of this book, confidence in performing pharmaceutical calculations will be improved and areas of weakness identified and dealt with. This book contains 360 calculations questions, in three different multiple choice formats, covering five important areas in pharmaceutical science and practice. As such, it is likely to be of great benefit to both pharmacy undergraduate students and those preparing for professional registration examinations. Unlike other multiple choice books, answers are accompanied by full working, so as to demonstrate the correct methods of calculation to be employed in each case and to aid understanding.

The authors hope that you enjoy using this book and that, through its use, your competence and confidence in carrying out pharmaceutical calculations on a regular basis is enhanced.
