Are your exams coming up? Are you drowning in textbooks and lecture notes and wondering where to begin? Take the "FASTtrack" route to successful study for your examinations. "FASTtrack" provides the ultimate lecture notes and is a must-have for all pharmacy students wanting to study and test themselves for forthcoming exams. "FASTtrack: Pharmacology" provides a brief account of drug action, as either a study or revision aid. In doing this, the authors have generally taken a therapeutic area and considered the major classes of drugs, their actions and, to a limited degree, their uses. There are many excellent brief guides to pharmacology and so their second aim is to present a study guide which deals with molecular pharmacology at a more advanced level, so that the book is also useful for advanced pharmacology studied in the later years of pharmacy and science degrees. This study guide should therefore be useful at each level of undergraduate study. New in this edition: each chapter completely updated to take account of recent changes, and include future drugs; multiple choice tests; new chapters on immunopharmacology, oral contraceptives and local anaesthetics; and, greater use of summary tables.
