The content is very helpful for reviewing medical calculations, and I like the help button which gives an overview of the area the student is having difficulty. The only down side of this application is that the answers are marked incorrect if the labeling is applied to the answers. This could cause some students confusion because we teach to always attach correct labeling (g,mg,L,mL,etc.) to the numbers. Perhaps a simple way to eliminate the confusion would be to provide the correct label after the box so the user only has to input the numerical value.

As a student nurse I found these quizzes to be a good review and a way practice and test myself in my ability to calculate drug dosages.
