    I purchased this book in preparing for my NMP course Having not done maths since i was at school i was daunted at the maths test that i had to endure to get on the course I was hoping that this book complimented the Nurses, test yourself in essential calculation skills book i borrowed The book is well laid out using colourful boxes and graphics and uses tip boxes to remind you and gives clear explanations and then some assessment questions when you feel ready to have a go The page quality is quite thin so i am unsure how durable it is.What lets this book down, for me as a NMP is that, if anything, less than a quarter of this book is about calculation skills The remainder covers types of syringes, drivers, pumps, paediatric nursing, fluid charts, EWS assessment, Waterlow, budgets and employment which has nothing to do with what the title of book suggests Further, the large print and boxes although useful reduces the quantity of information.
