I find that it is a good basic book that tells you where to start when something is abnormal.
The clinician's pocket reference is an amazing guide for the novice physician. It is extremely detailed and organized. It would help to have both lamen and medical terminology for those that struggle with remembering certain terms, but otherwise a fantastic reference guide.
its a good book, for recap and reviews, using for the USMLE and For Residence.
I am a Physicians Assistant student and I needed something that I could carry in my pocket while on rotations. Lab values is something I am weak in at this current time and this book has greatly helped me! Once I got familiar with it, I could quickly look up abnormalities and help find a solution! I would recommend this to any med/PA student.
