Is BMJ Best Practice the best time efficient and authoritative tool for medical students and doctors?

Finding and assimilating relevant and up to date medical information is a time consuming and demanding task for medical students and doctors.

I would like to quote an editorial from the European Journal of Human Genetics:

Never before in history has information been so readily available to us, and its exponential rise continues unabated. With multiple media formats, inexorably led by the internet, comes the problem of assimilating this plethora of data, especially as much of it is irrelevant. The resulting modern day phenomenon often referred to as 'technostress', can best be described as a state of being controlled by information technology rather than being empowered by it.

I have recently discovered BMJ's Best Practice (here you can view a quick tour) and will subscribe for a 30-day trial period. 

The rational and essentially branched categorization of contents makes it a truly appealing time-efficient resource.

Have you already consulted BMJ's Best Practice?
