Editorial Reviews

Review

The simple organization of the organ systems, the pertinent historical cures a practitioner should be looking for, the completeness of the description of the physical findings, supported by the excellent graphics, makes this one of the best texts on physical examination available...there is much to be learned by those at all levels of training from this well-organized, well-written book. Doody's Notes This new book, which is part of the popular Oxford Handbook Series, is a must-have for final year students and newly qualified foundation doctors. ... The use of colour illustrations showing the clinical signs strengthens the book as a core text for students. ... I have yet to read a book like this that encompasses clinical skills and practical skills. British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol 68, No 10, The books is part of the Oxford Handbook series (like the chesse and onion) and will therefor be familiar to the majoraty of students. Being a handbook is particulary useful and means it'll fit in most pockets without trouble... To finish this excellent piece of work, Thomas and Monaghan have included a chapter on interpretation - going through most of radiology, clinical chemistry and not forgetting the dreaded ECGs.

I've seen and studied lots of handbooks, but no one was as informative as (Oxford Handbook of Clinical Examination and Practical Skills). It's superior, out of the ordinary and deserves every penny.

It's really your way for an A Grade. Strongly recommended for all medical students in their clinical years, its more than enough!

took AMC and PESCI and referred on this book from time to time. the problem with youtube and net is there are several variations of a procedure. If you check it with your book (Murtaghs) you'll have to look for that page wasting your time. The topics here are clustered for ease. Other than using wikipedia, this can be a source of standard care of various tests and procedures with explanations. With that you can definitely say its from an authorative source. plus its cheaper to buy in amazon

I bought this book after it was recommended by a friend. I have yet to find a subject that it does not cover in a clear and concise way. It is easy to read and was an excellent summary of all the key elements of the clinical examinations I have had to learn about in my first year at med school. I would recommend it without reservation.
