Clinical Skills, Second Edition, is a practical and comprehensive guide to history taking, examination, and interpretation of results for medical students, junior doctors, and nurse practitioners. Written with wit and clarity, and packed with illustrations, this book will teach you how to join the dots between signs, symptoms, and diagnoses. This textbook sets out invaluable routines for the examination of each system, and includes chapters on interpreting chest x-rays and spot diagnosis. Over 500 line drawings and colour photographs give practical examples of core and advanced examination skills. Throughout the text, key points and tips dispense essential wisdom, while case studies help you to put theory into practice. This new edition of Clinical Skills is now more useful than ever in your preparation for finals. Each chapter ends with a short set of assesment questions and a section on how the system in question is tested in OSCEs. Even better, the chapter on finals has been expanded and updated to give more practical advice than ever before. Written in plain English and designed to demystify even the most daunting procedures, Clinical Skills, Second Edition is the ultimate all-round textbook to help you hone your skills and prepare for finals.

Review from previous edition This book tells you what is important and what one should most concentrate on... precisely the sort of guidance every clinical student looks for... I greatly liked what I saw and read. * Mark O'Shea, Medical Student, Nottingham *
Excellent. A clearly written book that provides exactly what is needed on the wards as a clinical student....Loved the style of writing... it is a winner. * Richard Duggan, Medical Student, Newcastle *
Student-friendly language avoiding jargon, and with a practical approach with good emphasis on presentation and exam technique. * Alan Cheung, Medical Student, University College London *
It looks excellent and is very readable... Phonetic spellings are an excellent touch and I cannot believe every book does not include them. Every student lives in fear of mispronouncing a word... the case histories are well constructed... these would give me more confidence in diagnosing signs and symptoms. * Nicholas Hoque, Medical Student, Imperial College *
The book explains everything with simplicity and even the Jugular Venous Pressure appears doable after a read of the chapter on the cardiovascular system. I especially liked the explanation of all the abbreviations used in medical notes. Practical information like this separates the book from others and after having read numerous clinical skills books during Phase 1, this is by far my favourite. ... this book is the best of its kind available. * Louise Murphy,(phase 3) Cambridge Medical Journal *
The book feels as though you are at the bedside being taught by a doctor. * Nicole Ward, Medical Student, Manchester *
