Easy, Organized, Informational Guide

by

Our station has quite a few of these easy reference guides, that we keep on the box. I was really surprised at how thorough the information, and how much it covers. It even includes a full basic Spanish phrases section, as well as lists of drugs, abbreviations, etc. It's very durable, and washable as well. Totally recommended.
