Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a handy sized book that will fit nicely into the pocket of a white coat...nicely in colour, with colour coded boxes for different points, such as emergencies, risk factors, questions for elderly patients etc. It also has some good pictures, photos and X-Rays to help to explain some of the ideas and concepts. Overall, a good quick reference point for help in taking histories and performing physical examinations.
" Medical Student, St George's Medical School, London, February 2004
is an incredibly comprehensive guide of how to examine just about everything. As its name implies, it's a perfect size to accompany you on the wards, and will appeal because it is packed full of colourful photos, charts and diagrams.
If you are looking for a detailed guide that is good value for money, look no further." Instructor, Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham, Hospital Medicine, May 2004
book with sufficient clinical examination detail and yet small enough to fit into a whitecoat pocket. Filled with clear colour diagrams and useful bullet points which makes and excellent on-the-ward reference. At the beginning of the 3rd year, when deciding on which of clinical skills book to buy, choice is usually based strongly upon personal preference to layout and explanation. However, when deciding to go for the full, or pocket-sized edition it is clear to see why many students are opting for the latter, providing them with a (cheaper) book, useful for both working at the desk and at the bedside." Student, MAD Magazine - Barts and The London Students' Association, June 2004
