This classic textbook appeals to learners at all levels with its ratio-proportion method and step-by-step building block approach. Beginning with a basic math overview and progressing through dosage calculations from simple to more complex exercises, Math for Meds allows for self-paced study. Each concept is explained and illustrated with multiple examples using actual drug labels, life-sized syringes, and practice sets. Summary self-tests are included at the end of each chapter to reinforce mastery and a new CD-ROM in the back of the book includes tutorial segments, exercises and practice test questions.

Anna Curren has been writing inspired clinical textbooks for more than 40 years. A nurse and former Associate Professor at California's Long Beach City College, she first wrote this text when the one she was using bore no resemblance to her students' clinical needs. Her graduate degree in instructional design, along with many student and instructor reviews, helped her create what is now the most adopted text on the subject. Also a successful entrepreneur, Ms. Curren founded Wallcur, Inc., a company which produces instructional products, including Injecta-Pad, Practi-Amp, Practi-Insulin Training Pack, and other learning resources. Ms. Curren also wrote the best-selling Dimensional Analysis For Meds, also by Cengage Learning.
