Downloaded Taber's for PDA....question...

  1. I'm just navigating my way around this as I just downloaded it tonight. I know in the "paper" medical dictionaries, there are charts and tables, etc.

    Is none of this on Taber's? or is everything that would be on a table just incorporated into the list view? I thought there'd be more to this for $50.00....no tables, illustrations, nothing?

    The Tabers for the PDA is no where near as inclusive as the book. I too have the Taber's on my PDA. But it's really good for what I use it for, a quick reference when someone asks "What's an athromatous plaque?"

    For working nurses who use a PDA, I find the Tabers (abbreviated as it is) and the Davis Drug Guide to be indispensible.

    Take care.

    I agree. Lots of good programs out there, but these two are indispensible.

    Thanks for the replies. I have a Dorland's with the tables, illustrations, etc.

    I did use the Taber's on my PDA a couple of times today at school already.

    I found the PDA version of Taber's to be disappointing. Too bare bones to be of much use
