    Pocket Talley & O'connor. The regular one takes too long to read and is dry as a bone. Use it for reference. I also like the pocket ones that have color pictures of exam technique.

    I really like big Talley & O' Connor I guess different things work for different people

      ????? Really?

      It's not that long at all and it's well written and interesting. After you've finished it the pocket one will do you but as far as textbooks go I think it's one of the least dry I've used.

        here a couple of the ones we've been recommended (there are others, but can't remember their names of the top of my head). they always recommend several, and leave us to take the pick of our personal favourite. hope that helps.
        but whichever book you choose, the real key to a good clinical examination is
        1) read up on it
        2) carry out clinical examination in front of someone who knows how its meant to be done
        3)feedback!!!
        4) practice, practice, and.... practice.
        enjoy!

          Yea but i have ADD :). self-diagnosed of course. I think it's the best one, it's just that I wouldn't find it particularly engaging.
