Of course not. If your medical school was anything like mine, they spent more time focusing on which gene causes metalloproteinase pathology than how to admit a patient to the floor.
All of us, given the right amount of time, can read UpToDate, a textbook, and Wikipedia to learn how to work up a patient. But in the meantime four other patient's nurses are waiting for initial orders.
This book WON'T teach you how to differentiate between the various glomerularnephritides. It WILL speedily lead you through the initial admissions and workup for just about every imaginable condition so that you have time to dig deeper and work on the more interesting step of diagnosing.
The book is way overpriced for its tiny stature. But then, would you want it any bigger (or longer) when it already has all that is necessary at a glance? Get it. At a dollar a page (or thereabouts) it's still totally worth it!
"Medicine" was recommended to me by my intern, and I in turn recommend it highly to my med students.
WHAT THIS BOOK IS: a "cheat sheet" of admission orders for common medical conditions that you will see in the hospital
WHAT THIS BOOK IS NOT: comprehensive

ACLS pages 13 - 20
Cardiovascular Disorders pages 21 - 30
Pulmonary Disorders pages 31 - 34

Nephrologic Disorders pages 74 - 80
Rheumatological Disorders pages 81 - 82
Commonly Used Formulas pages 83 & 84
ect...pages 85 - 89

PROS: time saver (will help you quickly write out admission orders for common conditions when you don't have time to flip through a larger pocket book or look up the full work-up on UpToDate)
CONS: a bit expensive for the size -17 cm tall by 10 cm, wide by 0.7 cm thick
