FASTtrack: Pharmacology is a revision guide that provides a brief account of drug action. The authors have taken a therapeutic area and considered the major classes of drugs, their actions and, to a limited degree, their uses.

New in this edition:

  • Each chapter completely updated to take account of recent changes, and include future drugs
  • Multiple choice tests
  • New chapters on immunopharmacology, oral contraceptives and local anaesthetics
  • Greater use of summary tables.

This study guide deals with molecular pharmacology at a more advanced level, so that the book is also useful for advanced pharmacology studied in the later years of pharmacy and science degrees.
