Ratings and Reviews
More convenient but less comprehensive than book
Compared to the paperback version of this book, this app is much more portable and easily searchable. The practice questions with hyperlinked answers within each chapter's text are a nice touch.
One issue I encountered is that not all the figures and diagrams from the paperback book are included in the app. For example, the nice diagram for the pathways involved in the mechanism & metabolism of Azathioprine are present in the book but missing from the app. Hopefully, this will be fixed in future updates.
