One of the most important areas of study for the pharmacy specialist is pharmaceutical calculations. The purpose of pharmaceutical calculations is to allow the pharmacist to prepare pharmaceutical dosage forms for their patients accurately. There exists a need for every pharmacist to be competent in these calculations for patient's care and safety, but if he cannot perform a pharmaceutical calculation, that knowledge cannot be applied in a practical way. The ability of healthcare professionals to perform pharmaceutical calculations competently is without question. Research has primarily focused on nurses, and to lesser extent doctors, ability to perform this function with findings highlighting poor aptitude. Studies involving pharmcists are few but are more positive than other healthcare staff. Despite this, there is concern over student's ability to do calculations too sufficient high standards. Accurately performing pharmaceutical calculations is a crucial skill of pharmacists. The development of pharmaceutical calculation skills in students plays a significant role in building a competent practitioner.Pharmaceutical Calculations aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles and studies. Pharmaceutical calculations are of utmost importance for the practicing pharmacist to accurately prepare and dispense dosage forms to patients. Understanding proper calculations and techniques in a pharmacy operation serves as an essential part in the delivery of pharmaceutical care.

MCQs in Pharmaceutical Calculations aims to help pre-registration trainees and pharmacy students with their study enabling them to perform calculations accurately and with confidence. Pharmacists frequently perform simple calculations as part of their professional practice. It is therefore vital that they are able to employ basic numeracy skills accurately so as not to compromise patient safety. The pharmaceutical societies of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (RPSGB and PSNI) have introduced compulsory calculations elements into the registration examinations. These sections must be passed independently of the rest of the examination. Many Schools of Pharmacy worldwide have also recently increased their emphasis on numeracy skills. It includes: * 360 calculations questions in three commonly used multiple choice formats * questions based on important areas in pharmaceutical science and practice: * manipulation of formulae and dilutions * dosing * pharmacokinetics * formulation and dispensing * pharmaceutical chemistry * descriptive answers giving the reasoning behind the answers Note: This book is accompanied by an additional 100 calculation-based multiple choice questions, arranged into five 1-hour tests, which will be available from the Pharmaceutical Press FASTtrack website. Importantly, these questions are available in the format of both The Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland registration examinations. The fourth title in the Tomorrow's Pharmacist series, MCQs in Pharmaceutical Calculations, will be indispensable to pre-registration trainees and pharmacy students to help them prepare for their future career.
