"I found the simple explanations and examples easy to follow and was able to quickly refresh my memory and hone my skills in key areas of calculation. The chapter progression is logical and the examples clear and easy to follow. I would recommend this text as appropriate for all nurses, regardless of experience, and particularly as a refresher for those embarking on degree modules such as Independent Prescribing where numeracy skills are an essential element of the course."
*Karen Dorner (DN Sister, RGN), Journal of Community Nursing*

"I have bought this book recently and I cannot believe at how much I have improved in my drug calculations! Brilliant."
*Customer review*

"I bought this to help me refresh my basic maths in preparation for the university entry tests for Children's Nursing. It was 27 years since I'd done my Maths O Level, so I was rusty to say the least! This book is fantastic. I believe it is the reason I passed my course entry test."
*Customer review*

"The mock tests at the end of the book are invaluable and will be used as a tool for renewing and updating knowledge through my training as a Paediatric Nurse."
*Customer review*

"Brilliantly explained, well laid out, good worked examples and essential for all students who are not natural born mathematicians."
