Food of the Brain


Graduating from College of Pharmacy doesn't mean we will stop learning. Our experiences every day in our chosen field of practice are the best way to keep our profession. There are also plenty of good books to read. Books that we can use to review what we've learned back then and books in which we can learn new things. There is certainly no end to education.


Registration Review Books like Comprehensive Review By Shargel, Mutnick, Souney and Swanson and Tomorrow’s Pharmacist: Registration Exam Questions by Bukhari are excellent means of refreshing our memories of pharmacy matters. Even if you’re not going to take any foreign or local registration examination, they are still worth looking at. You can also sell textbooks after you read them. This way you’re not only acquiring money but you’re also giving other the opportunity to learn what you gained.

As Confucius once said You cannot open a book without learning something”.  So don’t stop flipping those pages, we have a lot to absorb.

How about you, what is your favorite pharmacy book?

  6. I couldn't agree more on what you said about us not stopping from learning regardless of us already being done with school.. Minsan pa nga po, mas madami pa tayong natutunana matapos mag-aral base na rin sa mga experiences sa araw-araw nating pamumuhay..

    I still read books and novels till now.. But I do wish I was able to bring all of my Nursing books with me when I came here.. Para naman mareview ko din habang wala pa akong trabaho ngayon.. Ang bibigat kase.. Hehehe.. I wanted to sell my textbooks, but I ended up giving them to my younger cousin since she also was taking up BSN at the time.. She's an RN now.. =)

  7. Yep, once a book is opened, something is learned.That's what my 6-year-old daughter is discovering now that every time she starts flipping the very first page of a book, she could hardly put it down na.

  12. I know few Pharmacy graduates and some of them were my students in High School and I am just so proud at how they love the profession and still goes on to further their studies. Hats off to all of you! And yes, Education knows no end for as long as you are willing to learn, flip a page and there goes the learning along the way :)

  14. Learning is a never ending process. It's the only constant thing we have.

    I'm not sure if I can be a pharmacist too. I'm only good with human anatomy but never with scientific names and medicinal terminologies like drugs or chemical substances. :)

    It's really a good idea to sell your old books because you get to have money back and allow someone else to use the books which helped you and they benefit from them as well as you have had.
