Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for the price. Just got the book in, and so far it's pretty impressive. The drugs are listed by generic name, but they do include the trade names with the drugs, and in the index to aid in searching. This will make a grat guide for any student nurse or new nursing graduate!
