User’s Review:

This slim volume, an expansion from an American Family Physician journal article, attempts to come up with essentially a “bare bones” exam – a process that could be completed within a time-pressed patient visit (and what patient visit is NOT time pressed). I believe that it accomplishes what it sets out to do, but it really doesn’t add anything new to your existing exam. I learned a few things from this book, but almost everything is either in your physical examination book or neurology book. It perhaps would make a nice pocket book, except it isn’t pocket sized. In conclusion, not a bad book to read through once, but I am not sure if it is worth buying.

This is nice for a very brief review, but leaves a lot of common diagnosises out. I found Neuro examination made easy to be a better review. That said, I do like the full body picks with symptoms where you have to guess the diagnossis and then it gives the answer and explains why. They are very basic, but get the point across well. Would make for good test questions
