"Pocket Clinical Examination, 2nd Edition" is an introduction to history taking and the examination of patients, with step-by-step instructions for the junior medical students - working on the ward for the first time. It aims to provide a solid foundation of essential knowledge from which students can develop their own systematic approaches. Its coverage is comprehensive yet concise. Details of the mechanism of symptoms and signs, and comprehensive lists of differential diagnosis are not included by this, but may be found in the sister text "Clinical Examination", 4th edition. "Pocket Clinical Examination, 2nd Edition", deals first with history taking and with physical examination of the regions of the body. There is also a useful section on writing and presenting the history and physical examination. Filled with excellent line drawings, closely keyed to the text to aid comprehension make this one of the most practical and complete clinical examination guides available.
