5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This very useful drug reference will easily fit in your lab coat pocket. The information is accurate and up to date. Due to size constraints, only the most frequently used medications are included in this book. This book retains its value by being revised yearly and maintaining a database of the most current information."--Doody's Review Service

    Would Not Recommend....

    The layout of this book on the tablet is horrible. Looks like some one typed it out and
    put in too many abbreviations (looks like a first year student wrote it) I actually asked to
    have it returned. I like the hardback version not the ebook one.

    Well....

    Its missing alot of the basic drugs. Not very much information about the drugs either ie interactions with other drugs and foods etc. or side effects and things like that. Splurge and buy the complete davis drug guide, its way more helpful.
