i know, it's pretty old and not the "perfect" book but enough for my purpose just to quickly review pharm without using flashcard.

I personally laugh my butt off in addition to learning. His jokes are not even meant to be jokes, he's not trying to be funny, but he's hilarious.

Hands down, I don't think any book can do better than what Raymon has done. You'll see.

Pharm is a tough subject that unfortunately requires rote memorization. The only thing that I can think of working are flashcards.

But Dr. Raymon rocks!!

thank you.when people find it difficult to grasp something,they look for who to blame.
Dr raymond,ethics guy & Kudirat are the best teachers in kaplan.if you find them boring,you then need antidepressants

Hello, pharm was my weakest subject and now its my strongest because of lange pharmacology. Its so easy to read and they are to the point. No beating around the bush like other books. Give it a go. I did lange and then I used the autonomous chapters in kaplan only because I thought the tables were the best! It helped me alot on my step 1. I scored pretty high in pharm!

I think F.A and UW are enough... but you have to read every word in F.A and read UW explanation very careful.
