This book deals with calculations commonly used by pharmacists and, in some cases, nurses. The orientation is highly practical, focusing on day-to-day professional needs. The book takes a modern view in terms of topic coverage, calculation techniques, and teaching methods.

The new and expanded topics introduced in the fourth edition teach pharmacists and pharmacy students how to do the computations required in current practice, covering important areas such as handling injectibles, including those used in parenteral nutrition and radiopharmaceuticals.
