I have viewed many different clinical skills and assessment guides and I just personally think this one is set up so oddly. It is supposed to be a handbook for ease of access but I don't find it to be a quick reference guide. However, the information is excellent and complete. I wish I had bought the actual textbook version instead of the handbook version (which was recommended by my school so it could be brought easily to lab or clinical) because I don't find it "handy" at all. More of a sit down and read type of book in smaller format. I actually rarely use it now and tend to just google or reference note cards for the quick information I need. On a positive not, it is not information this handbook lacks. I am simply not a fan of the pictures and charts interrupting the flow of the explained assessment techniques. Perhaps it would have been better to have put the comparison charts or pictures at the end of each chapter after the assessment data has been explained. I say this because the book is supposed to be smaller and more condensed than a textbook. If you are using it as a review and already know what, say, retinal hemorrhages and cotton wool patches in the eye look like, you don't want a whole page of pictures interrupting the flow of your assessment explanation. But overall great book with well explained "normal" and "deviations from normal" data to look for in your assessment and how that can vary among pediatric and geriatric clients.

The pocket guide is very handy. It is smaller than the hardback book and is lighter as well. I love using the pocket guide instead of the bigger hardback copy.

Purchased in good condition for a fair price. Arrived with cover torn off and front page ripped. Cover was not in shipping bag. Would describe it as poor condition and expected better. Format seems logical and diagrams, images and boxes are relevant for quick access. Thick book, not really for scrubs/lab jacket but good to have in locker. Would recommend book, just not the shipper I selected.

I got the book in a couple days in perfect condition. However, the spiral binding is terrible... I constantly loose which ever page is to the back of the book. Id recommend the paperback version, or if you get the spiral version, getting it redone. I hope this is helpful.

This little book can be very resourceful and easily into your scrub pocket. Some of the writing can be a little tiny, which is really the only drawback, especially after a long day.

This book came in handy to the crazy summer classes. It is to the point no unnecessary information and most of all compact for travel.
