    I am just got done taking the medication class and I am getting ready to take the state board to pass meds to the residents. I think that this book was so helpful for me to understand all of the different drugs that is out there.

    The 2009 edition is excellent! There is a section on drug classes which is extremely helpful.

    Keeping yourself totally aware of what drug can be given with what food,other drug,or physical impairment is a what makes us good nurses. I keep mine with me at all times while on duty and have one at home for anything that should coe up at home. When I buy the new one for the year I give my old one to my son who is a medic with the USAF. They never really go out of date it is just the new drugs they add each year. A nurses must have.

    This guide is all inclusive and very easy to use. I reach for mine all the time. My family depends on me having this drug guide when they have questions about their own medications and such. I wouldn't be caught without a copy. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten my new version yet, but I am anxiously awaiting it.

    This is a must have...quick reference, easy to navigate, small enough to carry with on med passes. The back reference guides are invaluable as well.
