A text for beginning through intermediate pharmacy students. This tenth edition uses the metric system throughout rather than the apothecaries' system, with appendices on that system and the avoirdupois system and factors for intersystem conversion. Other new material covers the techniques of pharmaceutical measurement for beginning students, and introduces dimensional analysis as a problem- solving technique. Includes appendices on various pharmaceutical dosage forms and drug delivery systems, plus problems and answers. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
