"Love it. When I read the preface and the "how to use the book" it was very easy to navigate the chapters. These chapters are logical and the foundation chapters (one through seven in my opinion) define assessment features that are often overlooked-- nutrition and social/spiritual health. There are PLENTY of varieties in the normal and abnormal photos so that if a student did not have the clinical opportunity to see these features as a student one would want to keep the text for reference as a practitioner.I am impressed by the scope and the number of these learning tools and the placement in text. It is my experience that different students learn in different modalities -- many will want the nursing tips approach while others need to dream and learn with the life at 360 degrees.Students will use the cardborad " Assessement in Brief" while reviewing chapters as a bookmark. Greeat inclusion -I am impressed by the scope of authors cited as contributors and the similar approach in writing style. This text reads well as a unit without logical lapses in flow. Top three strengths: 1.lavish illustrations well labelled and near relevant text 2.case studies span the lifespan and include health determinants (culture, social support, income, education) 3. substantive references at each chapter end encourage the learner and the educator to learn more and stay current with evidence based practice. (bibliography, web sites, and references) Overall, this text as written has utility for the diploma, degree, and advanced practice nurse who is interetsed in health assessment theory and skill development. The depth of the health history sections in each chapter of section three is consistently easy to follow and comprehensive. "
"Three strengths are new approach with extra boxes, photos are excellent, use of cards in back of book, inclusion of case studies."
