This introductory text highlights the most important aspects of a wide range of techniques used in the control of the quality of pharmaceuticals. Written with the needs of the student in mind, this clear, practical guide includes self-testing sections with arithmetical examples and tests to help students brush up on their arithmetical skills in an applied context.

Key Features


  • Includes worked calculations to demonstrate mathematics in use for pharmaceutical analysis.
  • Focuses on key points rather than a large number of facts to help readers really understand the field as well as pass exams.
  • Includes self-assessment, focussing on simple arithmetical calculation results from analytical data.
