Must buy 28 Mar. 2004

Format: Paperback
Medical students should consider purchasing this book as a study guide or reference. Very practical, easy to read and the format is designed in a plain and simple manner.

a must-have for healthcare students 17 Oct. 2007
By Kelly Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is useful for both students and clinical providers (my preceptors borrow my copy quite frequently). Your school will probably NOT tell you about it, because they want you to scour many books just to find the information that's included on one page of this reference! I'm in my 2nd year of an adult and womens health nurse-practitioner program, and wish I would have come across all these books a year ago. Very thorough yet concise information. THANKS to these authors for providing such a useful reference!

A perfect book for med students during Family medicine, IM and Emergency Medicine rotations. 23 Jun. 2011
By Radiology guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In many ways the way medical students get graded is how well they can present a patient case to an attending with a good set of differential diagnosis that makes sense given patient presentation, suggest what tests to order in order to rule in/out differential diagnosis and suggest logical treatment options. This book is perfect for that. This is how I used this book. In FM or EM rotations where many times you have patient presentations with signs and symptoms rather than an already established diagnosis, students don't have time to look up stuff on 2-3 possible diagnosis on say Epocrates (or any other popular books people use) since you really are expected to go in, see the patient and come out of the room within say 15 minutes to present patient cases to the attending. So, when a patient comes in with substernal chest pain, although it may be obvious that the diagnosis is unstable angina/MI, attendings want to know if you can come up with other important differentials and know how to rule them in/out. These may be pulmonary embolism, aortic dissection and pneumonia. This book excels in that it simply LISTS differential diagnosis, what testes you should order and how to begin initial management. It also tells you what types of questions you should ask and what portion of physical exam you should focus on (since you don't have the time to do a complete physical exam). So after examining the patient you quickly take this book out of the white coat (I've always done this in the patient room before presenting to the attending), see if I'm missing any of important differential diagnosis/tests/tx plan, and write down ones I didn't think of on a small note book I used to write notes on when interviewing patients. Then I'd exit the room to present the case/patient to the attending. This book presents all of the above in easy to read 2 pages of an open book-left page has what questions/physical exams you should do, what work up and initial tx you should do while the right hand side page gives you differential diagnosis. I used this book to double check my thought process and in the process ended up learning a lot. It can only help with your clinical grade of your clerkship.

Great medical resource 18 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic reference for residents and medical students. I especially found it useful in preparing for attending rounds, but it's also great for exam review. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Good for any level of medical training 9 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An easy-to-read reference book. Very helpful in the hospital, on rounds and morning report. Designed to fit in your white coat pocket. I plan to use the book as a reference when teaching medical students and residents. Great for formulating a differential diagnosis.
