it is not required. You just have to know in which cases to use diff. % saline solution. You do not even have to know the dosage, just know the drugs or "best treatment"

nope, don't worry about calculations. The most you would need to figure out in which case to give 0.9 saline, 0.45 saline or those types of questions. UW has all those examples.
