Rang HP, Dale MM. Rang and Dale's pharmacology. 9th ed. Edinburgh: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier; 2020.

Bok                              E-bok

We recommend this exceptionally good textbook which has a primary emphasis on basic pharmacology, and an adequate coverage of clinical questions and basic toxicology.


Katzung BG, Masters SB, Trevor AJ. Basic & clinical pharmacology. 14th ed. New York: McGraw-Hill Medical; 2018.

Bok                               E-bok  

A good and well updated systematic book that covers both basic and clinical pharmacology and some toxicology, although basic pharmacology is fairly briefly described because this is a textbook aimed at American students. Much improved last edition. The illustrations are good, and most chapters start with a case.


Goodman LS, Gilman A, Brunton LL, Chabner BA, Knollmann BC. Goodman & Gilman's the pharmacological basis of therapeutics. 13th ed. New York: McGraw-Hill Medical; 2017

Bok                               E-bok

A brilliant reference book if you wish to go further in depth of pharmacology, but too extensive to be used as a textbook for the exam. It covers basic pharmacology/biology, clinical pharmacology and therapy as well as toxicology.
