This is a wonderful textbook in many regards. The way the material is laid out makes it easy to assimilate new information because there is quite a bit of repetition. I particularly liked the first chapter in the way it crafted the organization scheme for the rest of the book and presented the patient history taking method very clearly. However, I find that there is an especially large number of typos in this book. When I read a textbook, I expect to find one or two outstanding, obvious typos. In Mosby's Guide to Physical Examination I have found probably ten to twenty typos already and I am only as far as chapter 10. There are probably one to two per chapter, which makes me wonder who was transcribing the book. Was this dictated by the authors and then transcribed by people who did not have a background in medicine? I think this is unhelpful for new students to the field because it causes confusion. For instance, in one case a basic rule for how to write bacteria names was not followed. In the same sentence both Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus were referenced like this: "Streptococcus pyogenes and S. aureus". This leads the student to the erroneous assumption that the second bacteria also belongs to the Streptococcus genus. Both of these names should have been fully written out, as this unnecessary and inappropriate shorthand leads to confusion. I also believe that due to the fact that the photographs make use of models instead of real doctors, some of the photos that demonstrate how to position your hands when conducting a physical examination are inaccurate. Some of them do not match up with what the description is showing. In just a couple of other examples the spelling of disorders was incorrect and the measurement of blood cell size was way off (mm instead of um). I would hope that in the next edition many of these typos and errors could be corrected.

I purchased the electronic version of this handbook for my IPad thinking that it would make life easier to port around said small IPad as opposed to the gianormous books for class. What a waste of money. The digital versions of the textbook and its handbook were cobbled together by an obviously throwback corporation out to make a quick buck. Just because its digital doesn't mean they didn't cut corners. Key things to be aware of - 1. its not a pdf so page numbers are not present and it's difficult to identify content because of the lack of clear indexes and table of content which is so important for a student or if you're looking for something specific. 2. Content for sale or for view have links to electronic pages that do not work. 3. Content that would have been available in the hardcopy version was not included in the digital version from what I could glean, images, paging, etc were off so that the digital version was actually a hinderance to studying! 4. It costs almost as much as the hardcopy. At least if it were a hard copy I could return it but since it's digital and costs almost as much as the hardcopy (and you can't return it) my suggestion would be to save your money and just buy the book. If I had known I wouldn't have bothered getting the digital version since now I have to go back and buy the hardcopies as well.

My medical school required us to buy this book and it can be really useful. It is nice to have a reference to look back on to remind you what was discussed with respect to the physical exam. Helpful.

This book is good... not great. It gives long lists of instructions about how to perform examinations, instead of breaking things down. It does have special sections on infants, children, pregnant women and the elderly. I am studying to be a Pediatric NP and this helped me focus on what parts of the assessment will really pertain to me.

This is exactly how it was described in the ad. Seems to be of decent quality and looks like it will last.
