    I got a copy of the "Tarascon Internal Medicine & Critical Care Pocketbook" about a month or so ago and found it really helpful. It's not at the level of the MGH Pocket Medicine, but it has some info that Pocket Med doesn't.
    Anyone have any experience with the "Tarascon Primary Care Pocketbook?" The Tarascon site only has two pages viewable, they look decently helpful.

    Are the assorted Pocketbooks at the same level as the Critical Care and Pharmacopoeia?

    I really like the pediatric outpatient one- I don't have any experience with the primary care one in particular, but they seem to all have the same standard (and format! I hate learning new abbreviations and formats! it can take twice as long to find something!)

    Hope that wasn't completely useless information :rolleyes:

    Tarascon Pharmacopeia is great as well all know.

    I also liked the EM ones. I have seen but never used the primary care and critical care ones but have heard good things about them from classmates.
     
  4. I've only used the Pharmacopeia and Critical Care ones. Both are excellent.
