1.0 out of 5 stars Tarascon Pharmacopoeia? Never again! January 27, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Last year I didn't buy Tarascon because somebody reviewed and indicated that there was a typo in the peds section. For the last 3-4 years the company discontinued providing clear removable plastic covers. The plastic cover was very good b/c I could often clean it with alcohol wipes, it made the book durable, and I could often store business cards, etc. in the interior folds of the plastic cover. I contacted Tarascon numerous times during the past two years, and they said that they will re-issue the plastic covers this year. Last time I asked, they said they won't. I went to Kinko's and Office Depot for a solution to no avail. Frustrated, I looked in the Internet to find somebody who manufactures custom book covers, again without success. I came across quite a few Internet postings by medical students and physicians, complaining as well. In addition, the new book has a new narrow type face with ever smaller characters. The color of letters is almost grey and the back ground is darker so the contrast is intolerably bad. Paper quality also appears to have suffered, it's thick and inferior compared to previous versions. It causes a lot of eye strain and I have to use a different set of reading glasses to be able to read. (2.00D vs. 1.50D that I normally use!) To make the things worse, I found a typo within the first 10 minutes(!)I spent with it. Cefdinir section does not show it's also "Omnicef." You can't find Omnicef in the book! Coupled with other readers' comments from the previous year, the reliability of this book for a medical professional is now questionable in my eyes. I understand that the company had changed owners a couple of years ago. I also understand that the price is cheaper than previous years. Nevertheless, I would not give $5 for this book. I do not recommend it unless stranded on a deserted island with 2.00D reading glasses. For having used Tarascon products for decades as a loyal customer, it's hard to let it go.

5.0 out of 5 stars never without it January 29, 2012

One for my desk. One for my labcoat. Never runs out of batteries. Don't need a magnifying glass to read the print. Clear, complete and concise information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but bulky April 24, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this version versus the shirt pocket version because my attending said that we should, but I find it bulky and not worth whatever extra features it touts over the shirt pocket edition. Good resource but doesn't have mechanism of action for each drug which would be useful as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still using it May 2, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Convenient size to carry around while you're seeing patients but there isn't a lot of detail as to action, etc. An app is better

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick reference if u only want to know about the drug November 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fair for the prize as a quick reference. But for application I rather recommend Standford Guide as a survival guide.
