This is a handy desktop reference for my job in toxicology. I am already familiar with the basic principles of health, biology, and toxicology and this reads like a textbook to me, but it is very handy when I want to look up specific information.
The book is required for a class I'm taking. However it ls very poorly formatted and as much written.

This is for a 400 level class and is written for a graduate level audience. The chapters are not fluid.
A quick read before you read the actual textbook. Helps to give you a quick overview before you prepare to spend months reading the official textbook. If you are preparing for the DABT, this is not a substitute for the actual book.
This text is an excellent companion to Klaassen's "Basics of Toxicology" presenting an easier to use model for many of the biotransformation processes and toxicokinetic responses.
Concise, readable and a valuable text for a mid-to-senior level undergraduate toxicology class.
Shipped fast and best price.
This book helps me to parallel my in class teachings with the book and understand Toxicology and the essentials of it
