I find that it is easy to read and I keep it by my bed to read through at night before I sleep. It's an excellent supplement to classroom material and it is a fast book to get through when you don't have a whole lot of time in second year.
For people like me who have a hard time memorizing things and would rather have everything "make sense," I think this book is invaluable. If you are very good at memorizing facts and tables, it may not be as useful to you.
There are errors in grammar, but the reviewer who gave the book two stars for poor grammar is being excessively harsh. The errors do not take away from the text's utility.
Me: prep'ing for Step 1, entering 3rd year med, micro was one of my LEAST favorite subjects during pre-clinical years.
7/25 -- Have to up this to Five stars after reading the antibiotics section. Very clearly presented. Index remains annoying, but it's still a great text.
During my surgery residency I frequently whipped this out for a quick refresh on infections and their treatments which saved a lot of pain and gained some good points on rounds. Don't be mad when you get to be the go-to-guy when the culture/sensitivity results are reported, just tell your peers to get the same book. I still do and especially recommend it to my midlevels.
I had a limited personal load-out for Afghanistan and made sure this was one of my references. It was critical for differential diagnosis in local nationals and helping make tx decisions with a limited, but frequently bizarre, formulary (all dependent upon what was making it to our forward base from states and the orders took months and were dropped in by helo), might not have Amoxicillin but did have 3 cases of Zyvox... Over there when you hear hoofbeats it might be a horse or zebra but was just as often a rhinoceros.
I am still flipping through it now on my Westpac tour and can't wait to see the wonders of jungle warfare and tropical medicine through the paradigm of Clinical Microbiology made ridiculously simple. From a--getting to be old--Navy Medical Officer thank you and keep those new editions coming!
