Overall a pretty good book on physical exams and Hx taking. As for the previous comment left by an apparent 1st year med student about examination of the nose with an otoscope being 'wrong', one must remember that in medicine there are many ways to do the same thing. Nasal examination w/ an otoscope not only works (and is used commonly in the field) but also avoids spending money unnecessarily on extra equipment that performs a similar function. This book does mention other ways exams can be performed, but concentrates on one basic method to help teach students.

Do not get eTextbook. It does not come with the code to access the online materials even though it costs more than the physical book.

There are errors in this book. On the techniques for examination of the Nose and Sinuses this book shows and tells you to use an otoscope with an ear speculum to examine the nose. This is wrong. The correct way to examine the Nose is with a bivalve nasal speculum and a penlight or headlight. Also an ear speculum should only be used to examine the external auditory canal. When this book was written by Barbara Bates, M.D. this information was in the book. This was a good book when Dr. Bates was the author.Dr. Bickley should not have taken this information out of the book and inserted wrong information. Textbook of Physical Diagnosis by Dr. Swartz is my recommendation for Physical Diagnosis courses not Bickley's book.
