Ensuring competency in maths skills is a fundamental part of pharmacy education. Maths Skills for Pharmacy uniquely combines both the scientific calculations underpinning dosage forms with calculations relating to pharmacy practice in a single, essential volume.

An innovative student-centred approach is taken throughout the text, with numerous worked examples and self-test questions to stimulate self-directed learning. Frequent case studies highlight the importance of maths to pharmacy, and help students to make that crucial connection between theory and practice, while key take-home messages for each section are summarised in concise learning-point boxes. The second edition has been fully updated to reflect latest developments and practices, including even more problem-based learning tools and an additional number of examples and case studies, with increased reference to Problem Based Learning.

Written by leading academics with a wealth of experience in pharmacy education, Maths Skills for Pharmacy 2e is the ideal textbook for the subject.
