Just wondering which do you use more as a prescribing reference?
BNF or MIMS? I was trained with the BNF so more used to it, but I like that MIMS is updated monthly and the flowchart guidelines and visual section at the back is really useful.
Both have apps which I have yet to use. Has anyone had any experience? I know the MIMS app costs around £10.
Is it worth it?
Is the bnf or mims website easier to use?

To be honest although the BNF does have some pretty big flaws I would still use it as my primary reference. I am one of the F1's in Hull and also work as a locum pharmacist so have two different perspectives on MIMS and the BNF.
The resource that trumps both for general knowledge is medicines.org.uk though. So, in summary, use the BNF for prescribing and eMC for any drug information.
Hope this helps,
