    Not that Great - Lessoned Learned

    I purchased this drug book in July. I have been using it in class and choose it because I needed an updated drug book. However, I have found that I am not able to find some drugs in this book. For example, I am not able to find Percocet. I looked under both the trade and generic names and nothing.... So, that makes me wonder what other drugs aren't listed. Also as a nursing drug book, there aren't any interventions or listing under the drugs for the duration of the drug or the peak times of the drug. It has become quite unuseful. In addtion, on the back it says that you can go to a link provided and download a pda version or place it on your phone. When going to that link.... it was an additional $40.00 to do that. I have already bought the book. That should come as a convenience to having purchased the actual book. I wish I had realized this prior to the 14 day return policy because I definitely would have returned it.
