I was recommended this book by the newly qualified pharmacist at work, so I snapped up a copy. I'm really nervous about my math skills but this book - written by a teacher - really makes a lot more sense than some of those 'math for the mathematically minded' types out there.

You'll likely find it very helpful in year one, then I suggest you practice your own calculation skills regularly, (some Unis skimp on it a bit), especially in summer break.
