College Answer

Those candidates who did poorly lacked any structure for answering a pharmacology question. 
Pharmacokinetics was generally poorly handled and many answers revealed a lack of 
knowledge about this drug. Adverse effects and mechanism of action were generally well 
known. Doses of the drug were often incorrectly stated.
Important aspects such as dose or pharmacodynamics were often omitted and a structured 
approach helps avoid this.
