Solving Dimensional Analysis Problems
Here is a picture of it and I think you can get it for less that online through our store.

What is Dimensional Analysis and How to Set up a Problem Video 1: Solving Basic Metric Conversions using Dimensional Analysis Now to solving Dosage and Calculation problems: Before you even start doing any dosage & calculation problems you have to memorize the following equivalents. To help you memorize, I suggest writing each equivalent over and over, so when you go and take your test you can simply hurry up and copy the table on your paper from memory so you can refer to it while you are taking your test. Here are the following equivalents that you must engrave in your brain: Note: m L and cc (said like this: cc’s) are exactly the same thing.
The International System of Measurement (SI) units that we use in science consist of seven base units, from which all other units are derived.
This means that a good knowledge of the units you're using for a problem can help you figure out how to approach a science problem, especially early on when the equations are simple and the biggest hurdle is memorization.
When working Dimensional Analysis there are two very important things to remember: I remember learning these things and I wasn’t very good at them.
I got really confused on this when finally one of my teachers told us m L and cc are the same thing and the whole class was like “oh really”.
The reason I got confused was because I would hear a nurse say draw up 8 cc of that and I would be like “what?
I wasn’t use to the method of solving them and also math has NEVER been my thing.
I figured that picking nursing as my career I wouldn’t have to worry about any math but I was wrong.
