"The authors have used junior doctors' experience to pick out the 100 most frequently-used drugs, and these are described (in alphabetical order) in a clear double page spread format. I read it with interest, and found the layout appealing and easy to refer to. The information given is a hybrid between pharmacology and practical prescribing." Reviewed by Pulse, Apr 2015

It includes things such as; what its predominately for, how it works, contra-indications, things to avoid and be aware of, and any other important info you'd need about that drug.
Whilst it doesn’t give you doses, it is really useful in clinical practice.
If you have done your NMP, is the best book you can have alongside your BNF.
Along with other reviewers, I agree the content and structure are great, however the tables are so poorly realised I thought my glasses prescription needed doubling! Very blurry.
Such a pity. I am attempting to return my Kindle copy and instead order the paper version.
This got me through my medical school exams! Don't know what I would've done without it - also love the explanation section at the end, perfect for OSCEs!!
The drugs are laid out in alphabetical order so you can use it like a dictionary to find a drug. This is in contrast to the BNF which is categorised into treatments for disease conditions.
There's a few pages categorising the drugs by disease condition too at the beginning.
There are also very good questions at the end.
Worth buying from third year up especially if you are a student at St George's medical school :)
