5-0 out of 5 stars Med-Surg Study Guide
Reading the reviews posted on this page I'm beginning to wonder what everyone else is looking at. For those of you looking for information on the *Study Guide* I hope this helps.
3-0 out of 5 stars Great for building strong arms!
Lifting this book was about the only thing this book was good for.For actually taking a test I scored MUCH higher when I used the Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN. Saunders told me what I needed to know for my test, and that is really all I have time for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Readable; One of the Best in My Experience
I have now in my 3rd semester of using this nursing textbook. I understand the hatred for textbooks in general, but hatred for this textbook specifically is beyond me. In contrast to the many other reviews on Amazon, I have found the book extremely well written. I have likely read every word of over half of this textbook and have found it to be the most helpful of all of those textbooks we have used in the nursing program with the exception of Lehne's Pharmacology text which is exceptional.

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensable Reference
We have the 1988 edition of this text - it's been a reliable resource text for almost 18 years!

5-0 out of 5 stars Rock solid: reliable source
This book is AWESOME! And it does contain plenty of comprehensive information (some say too much?). It has been a reliable friend throughout my second year of RN school for passing exams and continued learning. This Med-Surg book stands far ahead of others (and I have reviewed plenty of them out there). Of course, this is only an opinion, and it might be said that selection of a med-surg book is of an ambiquous nature, with personal preference being the ultimate guide. But I have hated some others, to me this is the most easily understood, question answering, reference teaching guide I own for the sole purpose of occupation.

I am currently a second year PA student.This has been an amazing help on my rotations, all of them.I recommended it several of my classmates; they also love it.We have a test at the end of each rotation, and this is a perfect way to review. Just the facts without much fluff.It is also a handy reference in the clinic.

4-0 out of 5 stars Clinical Anesthesiology
It is a good basic book that covers the essentilas very clearlyin not too long chapters. It is a good entry level book for doctors during their first year of residence in anesthesia.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
This would be an optimal choice for most medical students with a special interest in anasthesia as well as for anaesthesia residents. It's extremely well-written, neither too detailed nor too simple. The authors write with authority, which is a good thing.
5-0 out of 5 stars Still a great resource
I just updated my older, well read copy recently. This is still my favorite anesthesia resource, the book I grab when I want to refresh my memory about this or that.

This book not only got me throught my ECG test, it made me feel comfortable with interpretations after several years outside the critical care scene!

5-0 out of 5 stars not as boring as it looks
After The Third Policeman and The Turn of the Screw, I thought this would be a snoozefest, but it was actually very interesting.I'm not sure who left it or why (do I sound paranoid? I don't mean to sound paranoid), but I think the information may prove useful down the road....
4-0 out of 5 stars A good practice book

This is a very good book for care plan help. Not alot of psychosocial but has an online resource that will help you too.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is a nursing student's lifesaver!
This book saved me in nursing school! Every semester my teachers kept a copy of my nursing plans to show future students. My friends struggled with care plans, but this book made it easy for me. Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars If you are a nursing student, you NEED this book...
I am a senior nursing student and this book is a GODSEND for care plan assignments and as a supplement for class lectures. Organization by medical diagnosis rather than nursing diagnoses helps by including pathophysiology and disease-specific nursing interventions. Interventions are listed very thoroughly with clearly explained rationales. This book is also a great tool for clinical though its size makes it somewhat cumbersome to carry around all day. I highly highly recommend it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars really a perfect pic
This book really helped me though out my preceptorship in the operating room. I was thrown in to this unit as a nursing student. the facility had never taken on senior nursing students in a long term segment (7 weeks) and didn't have any idea what to teach me or what to do with me. My preceptor handed me this book and by the end i was able to circulate and scrub on minor cases with complete confidence in what i was doing. it is concise in some areas, and detailed where it needs to be, gives great explinations and rationals. the only problem i found was the different tools. The west coast and the east coast have different names for the instruments, and the ones named in the book are more consistant with the names in the west. but other than that. love love loved it

5-0 out of 5 stars Alexander's Care of the Patient in surgery

5-0 out of 5 stars great reference
I am a LPN Staff Development Coordinator for a Subacute LTC facility. Although the title is RNotes, I use this book freqently. It is a good clinical reference for myself and my staff. I felt this would cover more information then the LPNotes, therefore it is the reason for my purchase. It would be great for nursing students, clinical nurses or for Staff Development Coordinators who are suposed to know everything! Enjoy

This is an updated review for Rnotes 2nd Edition. I had previously posted a review for the 1st Edition, and somehow it ended up in the 2nd Edition's review section as well. Nonetheless, here's what you'll find inside the new edition that you wont find in the first edition (copied straight from FA Davis' website):
5-0 out of 5 stars essential for first year nursing
This flipbook is perfect for first year nurses because it presents valuable information in a easy to flip, erasable pad. The book has everything from lab values, CPR techniques, assessment data, insulin regimens, tables of meds that counteract each other, and I/O figures for measurement. I used this book a lot for labs during nursing school and liked flipping through to remember basics that would slip my mind. Its a great present for any nursing student or first year graduate. The book includes all ages from babies to the elderly, and presents infomation for all types of nursing. Its a great book also because pen marks wipe away by rubbing it off with alcohol (which is in every RN's pocket). The Rnotes also have other makes that are more specific but this is great because it encompasses a wide range of topics. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good primary care office resource
Our busy office found this book an excellent resource.We hardly had to change the protocols much at all, only to update a few to reflect some changes in medications we use.The author has taken great pain to design a resource that saved us a great deal of time....I had started to do some of these for our office by myself BEFORE I came across this book and am embarrassed to admit the few protocols I managed to plod through were amateurish indeed compared to Ms. Briggs's work herein.Our office is a busy internal medicine practice with a heavy dose of geriatrics and we give this a "strong buy!"

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
If the armed forces uses it and bases their clinical practice guidelines on it, it's got to be good, right? It is. I use this book in nurse telephone triage for a military pediatric clinic with 2700 patients. The book is spiral bound and easy to flip pages, and the pages stay open to the topic you are using. Topics are alphabetized which saves time when searching for a certain topic. There is a very useful table of contents at the front. The home care instructions are straight forward and acceptable to our parents. It doesn't have all the topics you would need (that's what pediatricians are for), but tab topics you use most, add a drug book and a pediatrician, and you're ready to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensive/user freindly telephone triage book.
When it came time to select a book to use as a guideline for triage assessment, I searched through 15 books and a couple of computerized systems. This book is the easiest to follow, without being too simplistic.The format is exceptional and key questions are clear, concise and stillopen-ended enough to prevent "leading" your patient. There arecross-references for each complaint, as well as home care measures for eachailment. The final points are the blank formatted pages for writing yourown protocols, and tracking charts to complete QA.5 stars hardly seemenough! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Essential Study Guide book for success in nursing!
I can't imagine a more helpful study guide.Full of NCLEX test questions, their answers, and an explanation of WHY it is the correct answer (in the back of the book) plus succinct yet complete outlines of the chapters and more; this is a book for students who want to learn the nursing material as quickly and asthoroughly as possible. Truly a gem of a book. Great for study/review the night before the test. I found this especially helpful with my study of Fluid, Electrolyte and Acid-Base Balance which is one of the more difficult concepts for me and many others to grasp.Use it along with the textbook, CD-ROM and companion websites for greater learning.Any time you spend in this book is time well-spent.A well-kept secret aid are the study guides to nursing textbooks which, at many schools, are "optional" to purchase, but trust me, they are mandatory for your learning! Good luck future nurses!
5-0 out of 5 stars Works for Me, too!!!
I used the updated version of this book, and my goodness, it was worth the time.I could not put it down...it is rare that anyone can be excited about reading a textbook, but that is my feeling!

5-0 out of 5 stars Worked for me!!
Although this book can seem a bit daunting at first (I mean, it's over 1600 pages!) it is a wonderful book to have.It was required for my first semester in nursing school and I found myself using it even then to write care plans and find rationales and now that I'm in the med-surg semester I use it even more to refer to pathophysiology of patients conditions, look for tips on what to watch for in every patient that could indicate possible complications, etc. It includes a brief overview of the anatomy & physiology of the following body system and also gives an detailed, indepth step-by-step"how to" for assessments of a patient, including abnormal findings.It's a great tool to have at your fingertips to make you more aware of what to look for in your patients. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
This book takes electrophysiology and breaks it down into manageable bites. I first bought this book when I took ACLS as a new grad and was scared to death of having to differentiate between Mobitz 1 and 2, etc...I also like using it with patients for the illustrations when trying to explain what "those strange blips on the monitor" mean.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not "Incredibly Easy"!!
While this book advertises that it will make ECG interpretation "easy", it does provide the proper graphics to make this possible.The first few chapters of the book are accessible and the end of chapter quizzes are helpful.However, once you get to Chapter 3"Interpreting a Rhythm Strip", the strips are impossible to interpret due the small size of the strips!You need to be able to count the boxes to interpret the rhythms and this is virtually impossible, unless you have a large magnifying glass!I thought this might be one occurrence in the book, but it is throughout, making interpretation of strips near impossible!As a novice ECG person, this is not something that I would have looked for before purchasing the book.Other ECG interpretation books have much better graphics of the strips, making interpretation (while still not "easy") doable, and not frustrating!

I wanted to make sense of ECGs. I bought a few books to help but I learned the most from this one. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good for nurses or for any interested layperson
This book gives you a good introduction to pathophysiology without being very technical. Even if you are not a medical professional, you will still grasp the concepts because the author gives simple but adequate definition of the disease and its underlying causes. I am a career switcher (switched to RN) and this book worked for me.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very clear book :)
This is a fine book from an author who collaborated with other writers to make a book that clearly explains the common diseases that disturb the human body and its organ systems. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better, but it will do
For those who have never utilized the Incrediby Easy series, these books are great for review or to help make concepts less confusing, but are still *no replacement* for your textbook! :)
3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting
I am a nursing student and this book didn't help that much. It is very to the point and doesn't explain much. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you are just starting Med-Surg. I am in Med-Surg II and I don't feel that this book is very helpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars This book does not come with a CD as another review states
I ordered this book using 1-click because I read the review about how great the CD was. After I clicked I realized that this book does not have a CD. It's okay, it is much easier to read than my assigned textbook (Smeltzer and Beare's Textbook of Medical Surgical Nursing)and I needed something to supplement so I will keep it. The CD, which I also bought, is nice to have. ... Read more
