This compilation of one hundred and forty experiments in pharmaceutic compounding is intended for teaching pharmacy students. The experiments cover a wide range of preparations found in U. S. P. XIII and N. F. VIII, graded from the simple preparation of "waters," "solutions" and "infusions" to more complex preparations such as "vanishing cream" and "tooth paste." Many of the preparations are probably outmoded when viewed in the light of modern therapy. Each experiment leads to the production of a practical quantity of material, although the student may never later be called on to make such products. Directions for preparation and information concerning the uses' and mode of administration, storage, constituents and the chemistry involved arc provided for each product. A facing page of pertinent questions, with space for written answers, accompanies éach experiment outline. The book contains much useful information for those pharmacy students whose interest may lie in the
