Something helpful

  1. I just wanted to let you all in on a great thing that is helping me this semester. A Palm pilot. The best thing about it is I have a drug guide on it that makes it real easy to look things up and not have to carry a book on the floor. Next kicker the drug book was free!!!! You can download it from ePocrates.com. It was recommended by my instructor who uses it religiously.

    I hope this helps someone out there.:roll Froggy

    I have it all ready. There are alot of other programs out there for students and nurses alike, but you have to look. Wish I could remember the sites, but I can't. (Sorry)

    Froggy,

    What model Palm Pilot do you have? I was thinking about buying one, but there are so many choices!!!
    Thanks,

    I got the m125 Palm. It runs around 149.00. The thing that I liked was it had 8mb memory on board plus has a slot for expansion cards that way I won't be limited on what can be on there as I go through school. I would have gone up a model to get the color screen but didn't feel I needed it at this time. The color screen can make it easier to read. I hope this helps.

    PS. if you have a computer with XP on it you will have to call Palm Tech support to help download the software properly. It's an easy fix but nothing us normal people would know about.

    i have a sony clie. i like it but wish i had spent the extra money for the color screen, rechargable battery, and larger memory capacity without having to use expansion cards.

    I also have a 125. I think I would like to have the color version someday, and may upgrade, but it'll be awhile before I do. But for now, I'm happy with what I have.
