    Hello,
    Does anyone have recommendations for a good, pocket sized clinical diagnosis and treatment book? Which ones are used most often by MSIII and IV at the hospital, and which ones are concise and useful?
    Thank you very much!

    try 5 minute clinical consult for your palm pilot. If you don't have a palm pilot, the washington manual is also very popular among residents.

    Does anyone use the Pocket Guide to Essentials of Diagnosis and Treatment by Tierney?
    Any other pocket sized books you would recommend for 3rd/4th year medical students?
    Thanks!

    ST Francis Guides for Inpatient Medicine and also the Outpatient medicine ones are awesome! Very useful. Surgical Recall is good for Surgery. Also, consider getting the Washington Manual intern Survival Guide. That's a great book!
