5.0 out of 5 stars User Friendly, December 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment, 6e (Jarvis, Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment) (Paperback)
Jarvis' book is compact, colorful, relates the basics to the nursing diagnosis, and does so with a "window" style format that is color coded. No long narrative paragraphs. Highlights that are usable, quick, easy to look up, and reference. The book is small enough to fit into your pocket, bag, purse, or laptop case on top of the 17" traveling computer. Head to Toe assessments, broken down, what it means, what you look for, how it relates to nursing diagnoses. Quick, easy,userfriendly, portable. Meets the need for balancing work, quick study, and travel requirements all in one place. Good memory jogger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference, May 11, 2012
This review is from: Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment, 6e (Jarvis, Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment) (Paperback)
This little manual was a wonderful reference guide for me while studying for nursing skills, as well as in the hospital environment. It saved me from having to bring the actual textbook with me if I needed to review something at the patient bedside. A must have for aspiring nurses if using the textbook by the same author and publisher.

This review is from: Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment, 6e (Jarvis, Pocket Companion for Physical Examination and Health Assessment) (Paperback)
This is very convenient to have on hand if you need a quick review over a particular assessment. It is broken down by system and gives some examples of abnormal findings as well as common related nursing diagnoses. The last chapter has a complete head-to-toe assessment. This is much easier to carry around than a textbook. I wish I had found it during my first semester of nursing school, it would have helped out a lot more then. I don't use it a lot now, but I'm definitely holding on to it for quick reference.

Every new nursing student NEEDS this book. I used it throughout my nursing school career & currently still use it while studying for the NCLEX. The size & weight of the book is perfect for bringing it nearly anywhere. A must have for nurses!
