Can anyone compare the prentice hall drug guide with the davis drug guide?

  1. In regular book format I have checked out many drug guides & prentice hall has always been my favorite. It's also the one my school recommends (I've been an LVN for 6 years & am about to start my last semester of the RN program). I just got a PDA & am debating on which drug guide to get. I already have the free epocrates, but it seems rather brief on explaining the pathophys of how the drug works, which my school is really big on, I want to get the prentice hall one, but then I see everyone on here raving about the Davis one. Can anyone compare the two for me?

    this forum is pretty much dead, does anyone have any info on this?

    Or maybe have a coupon for the software?

    I ended up purchasing the Davis drug guide for iphone... turns out prentice hall wasn't even offered for that platform, so the choice was obvious. I used skyscape to purchase and download.

    So far so good, I used it in the first few hours on the floor today... one of the nurses walking by commented on what a good idea it was and that I'll no doubt find it useful!

    I know you already have your APP but Davis's drug guide is the best for me-HANDS DOWN!! It has the nursing process for each drug...awesome!
