This book is fantastic! I cannot give it enough praise. You can see the author really cares about what she is writing and imparting her vest wealth of knowledge to the reader. This is not your typical textbook. The subject matter is particularly interesting and combined with Ms. Jarvis' easy to follow style of writing, hours pass before you realize how much material you have covered and absorbed. I highly recommend this book to nurses, students and faculty alike as an invaluable took for sharpening your assessment skills and taking your patient care to the next level.

I rented this text previously through my university and used it for a class. This text was easy to read and apply. After my class was over I returned the text to the bookstore. To rent it was $50.00 and buy it was over $130.00, so it worked best for me at the time. However, I took additional classes and through my clinicals thought how helpful this text would be for reference. So when I saw it used on Amazon for $10.00, I jumped to purchase it. I know there is a new edition of this but I am familiar with this edition. I did look through the new edition and it has similar content just presented differently.

After many years in neonatal nursing, I needed a resource refresh my adult assessment skills and knowledge as I am now working with adults in an ambulatory care service. I found this text to provide exactly what I needed to rebuild my knowledge and confidence. The content organization, layout of illustrations, and descriptors of normal and abnormal findings is very easy to follow and assimilate. For my needs and purposes, I am glad I chose to save considerable cost with purchase of this 5th vs the 6th edition.

This is book is a required book for our nursing program. And I must say that I am very impressed with it too. One of things I am very impressed with is how easy to read it is. They get straight to the point, they have wonderful pictures, and the material is explained very well. I hope all nursing programs use this book because it is not long and drawn out with fluff. It is also an excellent resource for Rns who want to read up on some basic assessment skills.So worth the buy.

Amazing book. VERY, VERY helpful images, applications, and procedures that are very well drawn out. It is very helpful for the lab portion of physical assessment class. Gives you an opportunity to practice the labs on your own before class to fully understand everything before being graded on it during lab. I absolutely love this book and recommend it to any nursing student! The packing was very neat, and the delivery was fast!

This is a great textbook for any health assessment nursing course or for anyone who just wants to know more about the human body and its functions. I like the way each chapter is broken up into subjective and objective data as well as providing age appropriate information for each topic. There are great pictures and a CD that help to better understand the subject matter.
