AB Because pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics have a strong mathematical basis, a solid foundation in mathematical principles in algebra, calculus, exponentials, logarithms, and unit analysis are critical for students in these disciplines. A self-exam is included in this chapter to provide a self-assessment of possible weaknesses in one's basic math skills. Difficulties with questions in the self-exam indicate that a review of mathematical essentials is necessary. Mathematical fundamentals are summarized here for review purposes only. For a more complete discussion of fundamental principles, a suitable textbook in mathematics should be consulted.
