First off, hands down I really benefited from the use of this drug guide. It was perfect for in class use as well as clinical use for nursing school. It truly is one of the most trusted names in drug guides (my grandmother still has her Davis's guide from when she was a practicing nurse.)

However, in regards to actually purchasing the book was a completely different situation. I have Amazon Prime, so I purchased the book that was Prime eligible. Mine happened to be sold by Amazon. I thought "this is great, I have Prime so I'll get it here in about 3 days." WRONG. Just because they say "2 day shipping" DOES NOT mean that you will get it any sooner...especially if they decide to wait 12 days before they ship it out!! All of my other books (10 books total) came within 3-4 days of purchase. But this was a nightmare, especially since I needed it right away. If I would have known that it would take Amazon 2 weeks to get my "Prime eligible" book to me, I would have paid a private seller more to get it to me in an appropriate time frame.

Davis' is hands down the best drug guide out there for nurses. I love the format of the book and how each drug monograph is written. in particular the "Nursing Implications" section for each drug is awesome and makes planning care and knowing what to focus in on so much easier.

This drug guide is a great resource for many drugs, however it does not provide complete coverage on all frequently prescribed medication. Some important drugs were relegated to an abridged section in the back of the book that contains less information. Unfortunately, I was required to research one of the drugs in that abridged section for nursing school, and I had to seek more complete information elsewhere.

This book has everything you need. It worked well for me until I found Mosby's drug book which I prefer over this one any day. Just my personal prefence. I find that this one overloads you with signs and symptoms whereas Mosby's helps to identify more common and serious things to look for. I also think the nursing considerations are easier to identify with Mosby's. That being said, this book still has everything you need for a good basis on meds.

The book is good. It ships fast. I got it when I need to use in my class. However, the content of this book is not really enough for my class. I found many drug that I need to know are not in this edition. I am a little bit disappointed but overall it's ok.

This not only contains the bare-bones information about drugs, like their pathways and contraindications, it also contains the nursing focus, interventions, and teaching, which is IMMENSELY helpful for any nurse, but is REALLY helpful for nursing students in getting the focus in the right place. All the need-to-know information is even highlighted in red throughout the text, so you get your immediate focus at a glance and don't have to dig around.

Definitely recommend this one as one to keep around, at clinical, in class, or wherever.

All of the information you need for medications is here. Use the appendices and the online subscription too. Get to know this book and it will make your life much, much easier.

I like this drug for my Pharmacology class. I had many drug cards to write. This book was very helpful.

I purchased this for my Pharmacology class. It is great and all and I had to have it. Unfortunately then you have to purchase every year or hope that the facility that you are employed by does. I actually purchased after this the app for my smart phone for a little less and it automatically updates!! No need to ever purchase again. Save your money and purchase the app! Plus it will always be with you, because no one leaves home anymore without their smartphones!
