Quick Guide to Choosing Your College Major Book Excerpt:

This easy-to-use guide moves from self-assessment to information to decision making. The decision-making process begins with an explanation of what a college major is and what should be considered when making a decision. The next chapters offer three quick exercises to help readers clarify dimensions that are relevant to the choice of a major: their personality type, their strongest skills, and their favorite high school courses. Using the results of these exercises, readers construct a "hot list" of the college majors that seem to suit them the most, plus any others that look interesting. Then they explore their possible choices by reading fact-packed descriptions of 61 popular college majors and the 164 occupations and 95 job specializations linked to these majors. Finally, readers fill out a decision-making checklist, comparing the results of their self-assessment exercises with the facts they have learned about various majors. They weigh the pros and cons to reach a tentative conclusion and receive hints about how to do additional exploration to confirm their decision. With Quick Guide to Choosing Your College Major, the reader will be able to determine their future path fast!

Cracking the Code A quick reference guide to interpreting patient medical notes Book Excerpt:

Cracking the Code covers the basics of the contents of patients’ medical notes. Common medical terminology used in reviewing physiological systems is briefly explained. Commonly encountered investigative procedures are defined and their use explained. Medical laboratory tests are similarly explored. Much of this book concentrates on the secondary care environment because this remains the main setting in which healthcare professionals have free and open access to patient medical notes. However, the expanding roles of healthcare professionals in the primary care sector mean that all practitioners need to be able to ‘unlock the code’ of medical terminology and abbreviations. It is hoped that this book will therefore be of use not only to the undergraduate pharmacy students for whom it was originally developed, but also to other healthcare professionals who routinely access patient medical notes. This new edition has been revised and updated to incorporate measurements of body weight and surface area, capillary blood gases, sepsis screening, common drug serum levels, and changes to the reporting of cardiac troponins. Contents include: Section 1: Medical terminology Section 2: Patient medical notes Section 3: Investigative procedures Section 4: Laboratory reports Section 5: Medical abbreviations
