If you're looking for an overloaded, and generally not helpful pocket medicine book that doesn't actually fit in your coat pocket...you may want to look elsewhere. But if you want a great book that covers all the most important points of critical topics with consistent efficiency, this is most definitely the book you want to buy. The amount of important and consistently helpful information this little stack of pages fits in is very helpful, particularly for us medical students who seem to consistently be on the receiving end of those pimping questions that we need a quick way to look up the answer to. I'll admit I don't have any of the 600 pages of the Washington Manual, but I'm not sure it can really be considered a "pocket" medicine book...more along the lines of a "rolling suitcase" medicine book. Buy this book, you will not regret it.

Pocket Medicine is an outstanding quick reference, covering an astonishing amount of information in a small notebook.

During spare moments, I can review the well-designed chapters. When I need a reference, the facts are laid out in a clear and logical format, and referenced to journals and studies where appropriate.

A more complete index is the one thing I would add to this book, but that's a small quibble. It's easy enough to add notations to the back of the book, or add a few extra pages (the binder takes standard six-ring refills, such as FiloFax Personal pages).

My pockets are lighter since I found Pocket Medicine.

Excellent information. Great looseleaf format for adding and subtracting as needed. A "Must have" for anyone seeing general medical patients, particularly if in a specialty - to "do no harm". I waited for the 3rd edition for a liong time. Have used it since the first edition. Great reference to use daily.

Every attending, and most of the residents I've talked to the last few months have nothing but good things to say about this book when they see me referencing it. According to one of them, it's "the only source you need to memorize to pass the boards." I don't know about that, but it's been indispensable to me as a med student on rotations, and I'm sure I'll be using it through residency as well.

This is nice to have in your white coat during med school rotations but a bit overrated. Honestly, use uptodate - if you have access to it - instead. Sometimes the notes on here are just too compact to understand if this is your first time really trying to apply the material to medical practice.

I purchased Pocket Medicine: The Massachusetts General Hospital Handbook of Internal Medicine (Pocket Notebook Series) while still a second year medical student. It's saved me loads of time and efforts evaluating case studies and will be even more helpful on rotations next year. Just get it.

great book for a medical student, it is a summary really well built. it covers most of the more common diseases. you can use it also as a notebook as it is a binder book so you can buy a few more pages and add them. the images are really sharp, the paper is plastified so it can resist some water spoiling, the cover is all plastic and the front page might come off a little with use. But the content is what matters right so this part is great. each pathology comes with a description diagnostic procedures and treatment all very concise. great review book.

Great book for on-the-go while in the hospital. Great to use after you see a patient to look up the current recommendations regarding treatment of your patient. Well organized. Will allow you to shine on your internal medicine rotation as a medical student. I also think it will be great to use when I am an intern next year.
