I got it after I became an RN and it's pretty good. I sometimes forget I have it though! It's a great book for laypersons and healthcare professionals.

i have the free PDA version and i love it... i find it really useful to quickly look up conditions that i'm not familiar with (we get a lot of overflow surgical patients)...
Where do you get the free PDA version?

ETA: apparently the Merck site is down at the moment... hopefully it'll be back up soon...
