This workbook contains over 100 patient cases and over 400 multiple-choice questions and answers to reinforce the material in "Golan's Principles of Pharmacology, Second Edition". All of the cases have been successfully used in teaching pharmacology at Harvard Medical School. Each chapter contains the case from the corresponding chapter in the textbook, plus one or two additional cases. Each case includes multiple-choice questions that require the student to think through the case. Answers and explanations appear at the end of the book. The fully searchable online text is available on the Point, with a link to the Golan textbook Website.
