As a quick reference, this book is alright. I am almost finished with clinics, and I found several mistakes in the book throughout the year. The dentistry section has a diagram of the teeth improperly numbered, and in the anesthesia section I found several things that weren't consistent with my vet school's protocols. I feel as though some of the "information" in the book is an opinion rather than widely-accepted fact. From what I understand, Dr. Yin created the book from notes she took while in school, so some things may have changed since then. All in all, it's okay, just not my go-to reference.

This is an excellent pocket guide for final year students or interns in small animal hospitals. It covers not only internal medicine but orthopedics as well. Despite minor errors, it is still the best there is. It is used in veterinary teaching hospitals all over the U.S.

I love my nerdbook; I'm not on clinics yet but I use it to work through mock cases and as a review tool. It contains the basics for working up common problems and is a concise resource for simple questions. I am troubled by the review by a pet owner, though. This is not at all designed as a first aid for pets book and is written for an audience with much more understanding of animal health and medicine than even an educated pet owner. It's dangerous to think you know more than you do and can result in not seeking trained medical care when it is warranted. So, while it is great for vet students and interns it is not for pet owners. Sorry.

I got my nerdbook in my penultimate year when clinical rotations and rounds were becoming more frequent and serious. I absolutely love my nerdbook and refer to it everyday in small animal practice. I find that it helps to reinforce information and concepts. I really like the logical way that it is written and set out and greatly prefer the nerdbook to "Tschauner's Guide" (which I also have) or "Kim and Poli" (which I bought but couldn't read for the small font).
I wholeheartedly recommend the nerdbook for veterinary students and I foresee that it will be an invaluable resource as a new graduate in 2012.

Great book, plan on using for fourth year clinical rotations. Bought it early to learn how to use it before clinics. It was recommended to me by other students. Looks to be well organized and concise enough to carry around. No problems with ordering and got it in a speedy manner!

I bought this book when I was a vet student (about 11 years ago) and still have and use the old mini-binder version. I have added in my own notes over the years and it has served me well as a quick reference. I bought the new version recently but haven't used it much. I liked the old binder but some of the pages did rip, so I guess the bound version will be more durable. I like the updates that were made. I strongly recommend this book to all vet students! Thank you Dr. Yin.

I am very happy with my nerdbook.
It is not sold in the Netherlands, but through Amazon I could buy a second hand one.
The seller was so kind to ship it all the way to Europe, quite fast! I am very satisfied about that as well. (Thank you!)
Book itself is very handy. Small; so easy to handle and bring along on practice days. Captures the important points of every disease so you have a quick overview of what you're dealing with.

It is a great quick reference for common disorders. It has been a great help to the cases my teachers have assigned. It does have a little bit of an odd format but you just have to get use to it. I love it because it is light weight and I can carry it around with me.
