Not a big fan, I just don't get it.
on November 12, 2010
I have never figured out, as a student and resident, what to do with this book. It's neither a quick reference, nor a learning textbook. It's somewhere in the middle, giving a lot of textbook info in a small amount of space, but nothing specific to help you in a crunch. I found myself looking on uptodate instead. Some people swear by it, but I started adding stuff to the back to make it worth carrying around, but finally gave up. If I'm going to use it for study, I'd rather have a book I don't have to squint at and keep turning to the abbreviations page to figure out what it's talking about.
