This required text is (for once!) not dry. Jarvis provides plenty of tactful sample questions to ask patients during interviews. The author takes great care to define medical terms within the text so I'm not constantly reaching for my medical dictionary. There is no glossary, but the accompanying student lab manual has one for each chapter. Text also includes so many more photographs than Porth's Pathophysiology textbook.

An excellent resource for those of us who are enrolled in a BSN completion program. The information contained in the book, as well as, the availability of the website exercises and resources all help to make the transition back to school somewhat less stressful.

This book is overall very helpful and has a lot of details. The only disadvantage is it does not have a summary.

I have used many editions of this book, I think I started out with 2nd edition, because I taught Physical/Health Assessment for many years. When I first started teaching it 2 or 3 semesters a year I had the opportunity to review many and this was always my favorite- especially when you started offering the online materials. Even if everything did not apply (I taught at ASN, BSN levels and had my nurse practitioner students use it for their basic review text. However many texts were available for review from 1990 to 2008, I reviewed them. In 2013 I simply went to Amazon and asked for Jarvis's newest book available on this topic
When I review a text for course use I pick out the chapters of things I know very well and read them word by word, then peruse the other chapters, though after teaching 29 years I am quite familiar. I was also a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Students did not complain about readability and pictures and so on, just how big the assignments were. The whole book is way to much for one course (that's why NP students need a good book for review). And I was pleased with the pain assessment chapter and especially slides. As much as it "pains" me to see in research literature, medical and nursing students are woefully undereducated on pain management' I have stayed somewhat current in pain management by belonging to the American Society for Pain Management Nursing ( and a few other groups like the American Pain Society). A close friend with similar nursing background decided in 1980 to select the most serious problem of our whole profession. We chose undertreatment of pain. We have slowed down somewhat . We plan to continue until we develop dementia or die.
