This handy little pocket-sized book is a fantastic tool for the visual learner. Retaining the information is so much easier than rummaging through drug books. It's too much information to sit down and read like a book, but as a quick reference or a study aid, it's outstanding!

This isn't nearly as comprehensive as I expected. Still, I liked the way different drugs were compared against each other (esp. in the cardiac section), and the illustrations and mnemonics were helpful, but the whole thing was just thin.
