- Focuses on the fundamental ideas that first year students need to fully grasp before progressing with more advanced study
- Material clearly demonstrates connections between scientific concepts and principles and how they are applied to pharmacy
- Written by subject experts and edited by academics with a wealth of teaching experience
- Available for students and institutions to purchase in a variety of formats, and is supported by online resources.
