I don't think so either, but I've heard rumors that some schools use it as a primary text. Perhaps it's substituted with excellent lectures and lecture notes.

I use it a lot for review. As an example, I used the heavy Robbins to learn about the inflammatory process back in first year. We were assigned the same reading again in second year cardiology. I've obviously forgotten alot in a year, but not enough to justify re-reading the same chapter. I bring out my pocket-sized Baby Robbins and get a great refresher course in about 20 minutes.

Take care,
