    I am starting Medical School in August and I wanted to order the Franklin's medical book system. Which card is most useful for the first two years of Med School?

    None. The Franklin Medical Book system is not very useful at all, since every ward you eventually work on will probably have a PDR available. As for using it when you need to look up Harrison's, you can easily consult the text version (which has graphs, charts, and stuff). The Franklin thing is a neat toy for those who are too lazy to look up textbooks, but it's not very practical.

    Invest in a good PDA for all of medical school. It'll be much more useful, even if you don't use it to track patient data (which you probably won't since it's such a pain to input data anyway).
