I am a master's candidate in nursing and I've been an RN for 20 years. This book was required text for my program, a sort of review of the most up to date examination techniques and is suitable reading for nurse practitioners. If you are getting your initial RN at any level, I absolutely recommend this book---you will pass any assessment/exam question on your board and the techniques detailed in the book will save your patients' lives.
Bates' Guide is now used for physical examination and history taking in our college courses for graduate nursing. This is a paperback book. I had run out of desk copies so I purchased some for faculty. These books are well packaged and they arrive swiftly. Bates' Guide is well known as an excellent resource book for physical examination and history taking.
