Amazon review of 2021 edition:
Best money I've ever spent in nursing school.
It is small, but it’s supposed to be... it’s definitely pocket size! Perfect for clinical where we are limited on what we can bring vs what we need. If you have decent vision or proper glasses ( as I do), you should be alright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small but mighty
Reviewed in the United States on April 2, 2021
Get this. I’m in nursing school and use it as a reference when doing homework, care plans, and clinicals. Much better than lugging around my thick book. The writing is small but the book is tiny so it’s to be expected. If needed just get a little card sized magnifier from the dollar store. Other than that it works for me. And it even has some drugs my big bill doesn’t have. It has all the needed info like dosaging, adverse effects, patient teaching, and nursing considerations. My professor looked at it and approved.
