Format: Paperback
For nurses or junior doctors, this is an ideal book to carry in your pocket. It has just the right amount of detail in order to act as a reminder or guide on the process you're trying to carry out. It is a 'readable' book in that it is easy to decipher - maybe a book to go hand in hand with anyone studying for the Independent and Supplementary Prescribing qualification.

Yes this is a patient assessment compact book. However, personally I have found it to be too Americanised and not as beneficial as the Oxford Handbook of clinical examination and practical skills for UK based healthcare professionals

bates pocket guide to physical examination 22 Feb. 2009
By Patricia Pray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have used this book in my clinical setting and it is chock full of information and it is well written. It even has guidelines how to write up a clinical note with using the correct medical terms. I would suggest this book for anyone in the medical/nursing field who works with and assesses patients. A great pocket book

Great guide 23 Feb. 2011
By In med - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I find the pocket book useful as a reference guide. If you want in depth explanations, get the full version of Bates but this one is excellent if you are on the wards or in a preceptor's office.

Great reference and fits in your pocket 31 Jan. 2011
By Patricia A Chafian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Perfect size to fit in your pocket. Much needed resource as you just can't remember everything off the top of your head. Covers the entire body and systems. A quick reference when needed and examples for history taking. Extremely valuable. Highly recommend.

Good as quick reference with adequate level of detail 1 Oct. 2009
By KNR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My medical school clinical course wanted us to get the full version of Bates but I've found that this is more than sufficient for the course and it will be particularly handy when I start rotations next year.

Essential Information, Methodically Presented 2 Mar. 2012
By heavyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a 4th semester ADN student. Personally, I think my initial assessment skills have been subpar for my first year in school. I decided to look for supplemental material to assist with refining these skills. This book is exactly what I have been needing. I have not had the book for a long period of time (I have not read word for word), but thus far I have a better understanding of various assessment skills and a patient's history. For me, this book will be a must for clinical in rotations for school and my future career. I contemplated on purchasing the text-book version, but this book has the complete basic and advanced skills needed for everyday initial and routine assessment. Also, this book is "compact" so it is favorable to take to clinical.
