"A neat, tidy and very handy book for nursing students and newly qualified staff to have whilst out in the clinical environment. ... What is great about this little pocket guide is that it uses the terminology regularly used in the clinical environment but provides examples of where it may be used ... This helps to link theory to practice and aid easy identification of drug classes and what they are." - Tianna Jarrett-Williams, Nursing Student
