Healthcare professionals often are required to do various math problems, but how can students better learn the math skills they need and professionals retain that knowledge?

From author Louie Asuncion and TSTC Publishing comes the second edition of Math for Healthcare Professions. Made to be used long after leaving the classroom, Math for Healthcare Professions was written primarily for students but can be used as a refresher course for those re-entering the medical field or as an on-hand reference guide.

The book also includes a math assessment test and answer key.

He began teaching after retiring from 24 years of service in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman, aviation medicine technician, hospital corpsman instructor and independent duty corpsman.
