    One of the best drug handbooks

    I have used the Nursing Drug Handbook for years preferring it to other books of similar types. I still prefer it however, Lippincott has changed several things about the book that I am not sure is the best. All meds are lumped together and listed alphabetically through-out the book. It seems this is to prevent accidentally reading about a med that is similar in spelling to another med in the same class that may appear similar. I also do not like the total lack of the lists of med types in the various classes of drugs as a matter of fact there is not a list of classes of drugs at all that I can find. The index is also quite small for the increased size of the book so I am not sure why, did they really list all the meds in the index that are included in the book? In time I may find I like this new format as much as I did the older format or maybe not?
