Gastroenterology: Electronic Reference and Review was my first introduction to a textbook in CD-ROM form. I found it easy to use, allowing me to browse through a major classic textbook and have a good time at it. With a printed brief introduction, no tutorial was needed. On-line help menus are especially advantageous for sophisticated searches and other comprehensive research tasks.
The contents are organized under four headings: the Textbook of Gastroenterology, Atlas of Gastroenterology, Textbook of Gastroenterology Self-Assessment Review, and Atlas of Gastroenterology Self-Assessment Guide. They can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate title icon.
