Prentice Hall puts out another great edition! I believe this reference book is better than carrying around your internet; not to mention, the contained information doesn't overwhelm one with search information uploads. It is straight forward and the information is precise. It covers drugs, routes and dosages, availability, effects, applications, contraindications, and implications. It also covers unlabeled uses; which is great because what student has time to read every "research" article or publication on every drug. Another great thing about this book is that it not only includes drug -drug interactions, but also drug-food, and drug-herbal interactions - all in one place! This book also included a PDA download access card. I will refrain from reviewing it, as I do not own a PDA to see and review it for myself.
(So for that part, you are on your own.)
The book states this is a nurse's guide; but I find it a VITAL tool for my pharmacology classes and pharmacy training.
I bought this book for reference during clinical. This is a good reference book to have during clinical. The drugs are listed alphabetical and are easy to find. The book gives detailed information on each drug. The CD is great to use if you have a computer handy.
Over the past 25 years I have read MANY medication books. This one is the best. I am impressed with the thorough and comprehensive information on the medications, drug interactions and the nursing implications. The disc for medications was an added bonus.
I also appreciate how the pages of the book stay open to the page you are needing which allows for easier transcription when writing a medication review for care givers and clients.
I purchased this book because it was one of the needed books for me to complete my nursing course. I love it because it is easy to manipulate to get any questions I have answered. This was a great buy for me because the school sells it for much more money than I got it for.
This is the best drug book I have ever bought. Easy to use. Lots of information on each medication. A must have for nurses
