Clinical History & Examinations A focused approach

Students preparing for their exams, finals or otherwise, traditionally, have had to collate a vast amount of knowledge and information assembled from various books and resources. This is clearly a laborious and time-consuming process that also diverts the attention of the student into topics and areas that are seldom important or relevant to the exam. Clinical history and examinations: A focused approach encompasses the entire spectrum of the medical syllabus in an informative, concise, and easy to read and recall format. Appreciating the importance of time in the lead up to the exam, this resource will enable the candidate to revise all the pertinent topics across all specialties in a focused, information and time efficient manner. Every topic is succinctly elucidated in two pages that include an annotated definition, apposite details (e.g., male to female ratio, pathophysiology and classification), requisite history and essential clinical examination. In addition, relevant points in relation to investigations and the completion statement to be mentioned to the examiner are highlighted.

"Finally a book that presents all the information you need for history, examination and differential diagnosis in one place. No more will I have to keep three books open at the same time!"
Rupert Bright, 4th year Medical Student, Edinburgh University, United Kingdom

"Very useful when revising for OSCEs and other clinical attachments. It reminds of important things to examine for and a good order in which to do it. It makes the information accessible really quickly and easily."
Graham Lewis, 5th year medical student, Southampton University, United Kingdom

"An amazing resource for learning the core differential diagnoses and the key questions to ask in an exam. Clear layout, no waffle... gets right to the point, has all the key facts."
Karen Au-Yeunq, 5th year Medical Student, Cardiff University, United Kingdom

Other comments from medical students...
"This book is a great memory jogger when you've got the background knowledge and skills but want to bring it all together."

"Clear, concise and relevant... I would describe this book as being the reverse of Macleod's in that it provides all the relevant history and examination by disease rather than by symptom."
