I must admit at the outset that I am not a computer maven. I do own a computer and can run relatively simple programs without too much trouble. It was a pleasure to review Comprehensive Gynecology and Comprehensive Gynecology Review on CD-ROM. As with the book, the text is well organized, clear, and an excellent source of information.
It is easy to either review entire chapters, as in the book, or to pull up a specific subject by typing the topic in the appropriate Find space. This obviates going through an index to locate information on a topic. As an example, typing in "menopause" and "management" brought up all the appropriate text dealing with the management of the menopause.
