Format: Paperback
This book has useful information for learning material that you will need to know in the classroom on on your boards.

That said, this book is riddled with errors. You have to be careful what you read, because there are typos on nearly every page.

The questions at the end of each chapter are moderately useful in asking about what you just read. However, the question blocks at the end of the book are atrociously bad. Many of the questions test your knowledge of concepts not presented in the book, so I suppose you can approach them as another learning opportunity, but as a question format they're not very helpful.

One example:
Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias that have been associated with hypersympathetic activity are most likely to arise from:
A. Right sided sympathetic fibers originating from T1-T4
B. Left sided sympathetic fibers originating from T2-T5
C. Left vagus nerve
(D and E are obviously wrong)

If you committed to memory the chart on page 104 (as you are supposed to for boards, see below) you will remember that the spinal cord level associated with the heart is T1-T5. There are 2 answer choices that fit that answer, and choice C is wrong because the vagus does parasympathetics. So you may be inclined to put B since the heart is, after all, on the left side. Well, you would be wrong, according to Savarese, as he explains in the answer explanation:

"Fibers originating on the right innervate the right heart and sinoatrial (SA) node...Left sided sympathetic fibers innervate the AV node." So the answer is A.

Very cute, but why didn't he include that information in the original text? He doesn't. Many of the questions end up this way, making for a frustrating exercise.

I graduated from DO school in 2003, and really have not used OMT for last several years. When I found out that PA state medical board required OMT practical exam, I was definately nervious and clueless how to study for it. This book give the key aspects of OMT and the principles and easy to reference for quick review. I would recommend getting another companion book that shows more OMT techinques, as this book lacks all soft tissue techniques and muscle energy/HVLA techniques for pelvis. Otherwise, I used this book to review 2 weeks prior to the exam date, and was satisfied. BTW, you probably over study for the OMT exam but its better to be extra prepared by using this book.

This book is the perfect OMM review book. It takes the most important concepts from OMM and organizes them in a neat and easy to digest package. And the best part is that if you need to review for COMLEX I or II you can breeze through this book in 1 weekend. The text is large and approachable, the images are simple and effective (though not colored or very artistically drawn), and the chapters are short and well organized. If I had bought this book during medical school I would have used it for classes instead of the suggested readings.

Each chapter is well organized. The chapters start with useful information, contain mnemonics in the margins, and include separate boxes for key points and concepts. Each chapter ends with 10-20 multiple choice questions to test your comprehension from the material you just read.

The book is organized the same way that OMM should be taught (in my opinion). It follows the musculoskeletal system. You learn about cervical spine, then thoracic, then lumber and so on. It all flows very nicely and it an easy read.

I would highly suggest you buy this book if you plan on reviewing for the COMLEX, you need a quick easy guide to OMM, or you want a great overview book for your OMM class.

This book is great. It presents the material clearly and concisely. It has some great charts, good images, and "Trigger Points" - areas pointing out the key information on a topic that can be quickly reviewed at the last minute.

This book IS NOT FOR basic understanding and initial learning of OMT fundamentals or techniques; however, it is perfect for review. Certain topics may need to be supplemented with course notes, Foundations, or another resource (ex: Crainal); but overall the book serves its purpose of putting the important information all in one book with an easy to read format.

Does the job. Good enough to get you through the OMT sections of boards and the COMAT. You will need to study Chapman's reflexes independent of this guide b/c not enough time is devoted in relation to the degree to which they are tested.

I needed to take the OMT practical exam for a PA unrestricted license. The book helped me to get a quick and to the point review in a very short period of time. The book lacked certain specific details, but at that point, I went to the more detailed books which wasn't a whole lot. In general, I felt the book did its job. I noticed there were a lot of anatomy info which I didn't need for the practical exam, but will be useful for quick reviews surgically speaking. I felt the book was a good buy. Thank you for your help.

Read through it once before COMLEX. It is a great summary of "everything" needed to know for the big test. It comes with 4 practice tests, which are all equally important in helping you prepare. Overall would recommend.
