    Wonderful resource

    In preparing for my certification, I picked up this book to use as a resource. I was very pleased to find wonderful information not only to help care for my patients and help me be a better go-to person for my co-workers, but the information will help me get my certification on (hopefully) my first try. If you are looking for a book with up-to-date information about asthma and how to treat it properly, I very much recommend this book.
