What other book might you compare Memorizing Pharmacology to and why?


Have you listened to any of James Gillies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. I highly recommend it to anyone in the medical field. I also recommend the audible version because it helped me with the pronunciations.

One of a kind!

I love the narrator, the flow, the mnemonics, and the simplicity. Highly recommended!!!! As a medical student, I can confidently say that this book is one of a kind when it comes to learning Pharm. First book I've come across that is not intimidating.

Finally, an audiobook with correct pronunciations!

Would you consider the audio edition of Memorizing Pharmacology to be better than the print version?

There are many names in pharmacology that seem unpronounceable, os it's not as much that the audio is better than the print version as much as helpful to have with the print version.

What did you like best about this story?

The Cardiode to Joy performance in the cardiac section is really well done, the book really makes sense from beginning to end.

Which character – as performed by James Gillies – was your favorite?

The ending where the mom and dad had to do CPR on their 3-month old was a tearjerker.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How to make pharmacology not suck.

P-1 student

I am a P-1 student, mom, and have all the responsibilities that a 39 year old returning student endures. I downloaded this book the summer before my P-1 year and listened while doing household chores. It has helped me so much during my first year to already have this information down and I could spend my time on the new information presented in class. The tips for remembering the immense amounts information in a short amount of time and only needing to review the drug cards for exams have contributed to my success in class and as a mother navigating the 4 intense years.
