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.

Even though this is an older edition, assessment (like anatomy) doesn't change. I wanted this book when I took an assessment class in 2008 but it was simply too pricey. This is a great book even though I am a licensed healthcare professional, it is a wonderful resource book. Highly recommend it.

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.

It was a previous edition to the one that I had used in class, but looked basically the same. I thought that the book was good enough to keep instead of renting and wanted to own one for reference. The price was great and it came so quickly. Thank you.

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.

I am currently using this book for physical assessment in my NP program. I bought the 2nd edition when I was in my RN program, and now I have the same book 6th ed. That will tell you how useful and important Jarvis is in becoming a great clinical examiner.
