This small pocket volume was compiled as an aid to students and interns at the University of Arkansas School of Medicine. It follows in part the recommendations of Poncher and Numa and associates regarding dosage of certain drugs. For the most part calculation is based on weight and is according to accepted methods. Differences between oral, parenteral, and rectal dosages are indicated. The list of drugs included is by no means complete, but except for one or two omissions is adequate. Ephedrine is missing. On the other hand, all of the antibiotics and corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisone are included.

This is a useful little book and should be helpful for students and interns.
