The electronic version of Hoekelman's excellent Primary Pediatric Care has everything the book has and more. All items in the huge textbook (reviewed in JAMA May 23, 2001) are on this CD-ROM, and there are additional color illustrations from Zitelli and Davis' Atlas of Pediatric Diagnosis, third edition and extensive drug information from Mosby's GenRx database. The CD also has links to pediatric Web sites. A review question section for board preparation assistance completes the package. The information is thorough—if you can find it.
