This is the best physical exam book I have found for musculoskeletal complaints. I also like that there is a good discussion of what questions to ask the patient, and also the treatment plan.

I used this book to buff up my physical exam skills for my orthopedic rotation. In many respects, I think it is much better than Hoppenfeld.
