I picked this book up prior to day one of clinicals in medical school. Now 5 years later in residency I still refer to it on a regular basis. This is color coordinated and easy to follow sections on conversions, common normal lab values, progress notes, discharge summaries, H&P's, OP notes, Mini Mental Status exams, and neuro exams plus many more tidbits. I picked this up for 7 dollars at my bookstore, saved me many times at 2am on call. Get this, it will help you on all services. A gold standard of easy reference.

First of all, this is an excellent manual. Nice and thin with just the pertinent stuff that you'll want accessible in your pocket. Not like all of those bulkier options, I actually carry this one in my nurse scrubs.

You can buy this directly from the manufacturer for $7. Not sure why the price on here is more than ten times that!?

I don't know anyone who's in rotations and doesn't own this. It's not super detailed, but for quick reference while in a hospital, it's a life saver. Pages are color coded so you can flip to where you need to be quickly. Don't go into your rotation without it.

This is definitely worth the money. I have used it many many times, even if for just measuring lacerations, contusions, purpuric lesions, etc.

I am a medical student and this has been a nice pocket reference. It contains, reference lab data, hp, neuro exam info, acls protocol (which is outdated at this point), and a bonus feature it has an eye chart on the back along with a ruler. If your in the medical field or training to be in it, I'd recommend picking this up and throwing it into your white coat.

My husband is in medical school, currently on rotations. He uses this guide to study during down times. He thinks it's great.

Packed with an abundance of information the problem is that you need a magnifying glass to really see all the information. The information is exceptional and wonderful but difficult reading the tiny print. How bout "large print for us 45y/o senior citizens?"

This is a decent quick reference book and I really don't have a ton more to say about it than that. It serves its purpose well.
