***** Powerful little clinical assessment tool!“Book required for graduate nursing course. Didn't disappoint! Especially helpful with formulating the differential diagnoses in the care plan...”—Susan, Online Reviewer
***** Really good organization. Helpful descriptions. Easy to find information.“I actually really liked this text for my Advanced Assessment course. I liked how it was broken down by area or body system, and then further broken down my differential diagnosis. The information is organized in a way that makes sense and is super easy to skim to find exactly what you need.”—Alexx, Online Reviewer
