Purchase Updated Books?


The kit of textbooks I purchased for my program came with a 2013 version of a drug guide. I received in the mail an advertisement for the 2014 drug guide. I know that purchasing books is a scam, but with as fast as drugs change, does anyone see the benefit of purchasing the updated book??

I used to buy one every 2-3 years, never every year. But now with quality online resources, including the manufacturer, I haven't felt the need to buy them for the last 5-10 years.

If its a new med, it probably has its own website that has far more detail than you need
