This book is outstanding. I am an x-ray technologist and when I went to school some 30 years ago it would have been so helpful for my profession to have a book like this. Amazing that every subject was touched upon including how much time was needed for study and exactly how to prioritize your life and family to do so. Every profession needs a book like this. Great read.

This was a great book for someone considering the profession our someone on their way in. I am about to enter PA school and this gave me a great idea of what I have to look forward to in the profession. The majority of the book is made up of a "day in the life" narratives written by many PAs from a wide variety of fields. It was a great way to learn about the endless possibilities that come with becoming a PA.

Jessi is an incredible PA who is very knowledgeable about the profession and has a great passion for sharing her love with others. The information she and the other authors share is very helpful for graduate school hopefuls and those interested in the medical field. I gained and immense amount of insight from the 'A Day In The Life Of' section and hope others enjoy her book as much as I have!

I very much enjoyed reading this book, great examples of everyday life as a PA student (both in the didactic and clinical year) and a working PA. Also gave very informative advice on transitioning from school to working- learned a lot as a current PA student.
