Remington: The Classic Name in Pharmacy Resources

RemingtonFor more than 100 years, Remington has been the definitive reference for all aspects of the science and practice of pharmacy and is used for pharmaceutics, therapeutics, and pharmacy practice courses in primary curricula. Since the first edition was published, pharmacists have used this book as a comprehensive one-stop reference.

Remington: The Science & Practice of Pharmacy is the most widely used textbook and reference work on pharmaceutical sciences in the nation.

Subsequent to his death, the copyright to this text was assigned to the University by the heirs of Professor Remington.

Remington has provided a comprehensive source of knowledge about the science and practice of pharmacy. The book provides information to help both students and practitioners serve effectively as members of the health professions team. The 22nd edition was published in 2012.
