Excellent resource for the wards  March 24, 2011

I would highly recommend this textbook for medical students and resident physicians, Very quick source to read and understand the concepts of antibiotics. This textbook focuses on the most common clinical uses for each class of drugs and points out the most important clinical facts about each, thereby serving as a surrogate teacher helping to make sense of the wide world of antibiotics.
