Always the best!  May 1, 2011

I am a med student and I found it very useful during my internship in pediatrics, especially in the emergency department. The section with the drugs and all the tips about them (dosage, adverse effects, when not to use it, etc) are really helpful for med students who won't specialize in this area and who want to have a general knowledge on this subject. I would recommend it, especially as a quick reference for pediatric doses of medications. I ordered this textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time.
