by Carolyn Jarvis

Book Description Physical Examination and Health Assessment provides all the information necessary to conduct a holistic health assessment across the life span. The physical examination unit is organized by body system, pedagogically and clinically the most logical and efficient way to learn and perform health assessment. Each chapter has five major sections: (1) Structure and Function (A&P); (2) Subjective Data (history); (3) Objective Data (skills, expected findings, and common variations for healthy people and selected abnormal findings); (4) Abnormal Findings (illustrations of related disorders and conditions in atlas format); and (5) Application and Documentation (sample charting, clinical case studies, nursing diagnoses, and critical thinking questions tied to the Saunders video series).

This review is for kindle version of the textbook. It's completely unusable. The most important information is organized into tables which are most likely formatted as pics with very low resolution (see pics attached). Doesn't matter which device is used (tried them all - iPhone, iPad, laptop, desktop, Galaxy tab, etc) the tables are too blurry to read.
This is the most disappointing ebook I've ever bought.
For me, I rented this book. However now i am realizing I should probably buy this book. This book will not only be used during the first semester of nursing school, but it will be used throughout your whole nursing school career. This would also be good to keep after nursing school because you will be able to refer to this book if you forget something, have questions, or just need a little refresher. This book is easy to use, super informational, and up to date on most of the information. It is easy to understand all the information in the book; they really lay it out step by step.I use this book daily for almost every single class that I have. This is undoubtedly the book that I look at the most during my nursing school. I have no doubt that I will end up buying this book to keep forever. I would suggest that not only nurses, but any person that is going into the health care field to buy or rent. I can promise this book will increase your knowledge, ability, and confidence on how to do a physical examination and a health assessment. If you can't afford to buy this book, renting is a great option that will allow you to have access to the invaluable information. So glad that I got this book and I hope you guys get this book too.
I am in a FNP program and this was a textbook required and provided in an online format. I found it to be helpful and well organized so I ordered it to have a hard copy. Loving the ease I can reference back to things and highlight uber important things. Step by step instructions make for great learning! Very well done.
Book in great condition. I did not realize that it did not include access code. I am not very happy about this. I wish it clearly stated this. Why would I buy a brand new book without all the perks.
This book does not display the tables or images properly! I had to buy ANOTHER copy just so I could read the diagrams and everything :( Very dissappointed. Also Kindle does not have page numbers so its' hard to find the pages to do assignments. Its as if they scanned the images and tables but the resolution SUCKS.

The photo uploaded is a table. I zoomed in on my ipad mini, and I took it with my phone. You should be able to see that the words are fuzzy.

It just is not worth the bother. I passed my class, but I had to borrow and buy copies from my classmates.
This book should never have been made rentable. I did not realize that it had worksheets inside of it that had already been completed. I assumed since it was rentable that it was not that kind of lab manual, which yes is partially my own fault, but why would you rent something out that is completely unusable.
This textbook was a requirement for my nursing course. I love this book because each chapter focuses on one specific body system (e.g., neurological, muscular, reproductive, etc.) in a very precise and concise manner--which is usually in the form of a chart and/or a table. Normal and abnormal assessment findings are elaborated for better understanding. I will definitely use this book through out my entire nursing career.
I only wish there was an electronic edition of this seventh edition!
I am a Nursing I student and was told that this will come in handy on more than 1 occasion. I like the depth in which the book goes into for each system and really helps the student understand. This is a great reference when changing areas of emphasis and systems of study. This is even a good reference for professional Nurse Practitioners changing specialties.
