For many optometry students across the nation, much systemic and ocular pharmacology is not presented in their school's curriculum until after they have taken the Basic Sciences Test of the National Board Exam. The Pharmacology sections of the popular study guides in use today have been described by most students as overwhelming and confusing. This guide follows the outline of the Candidate Guide to provide a clear, concise study aid of drug groupings, drug uses, mechanisms of action, possible adverse reactions, contraindications and precautions, and the primary drug of treatment for specific conditions and alternate drugs for use when the primary drug is contraindicated.
