"The best feature of this manual is it's inclusion of detailed, task-oriented checklists for the more complex skills, especially those related to sterile compounding. Introductory information puts exercises in perspective and prepares the student for the laboratory work ahead. The writing style is clear and concise - neither too elementary nor overly complex - and appropriate for the intended audience."- Mary Ann Stuham, Pharm D, RPh, Journal of Pharmacy Technology, Sept/Oct 2007
