5Awesome & handy tool!Nov 28, 2011
By M Misturado
This is a great tool for those beginning in the ortho field. The book is a perfect size for fitting into a large scrub or lab coat pocket. The pages are thick and coated, and feel like they could stand up to a lot of abuse. This coating also allows for making notes with a dry erase marker and erasing. (I've tested it!) The only slight negative is the overall thickness of the book. The size is small enough to fit into pockets but the thickness (over an inch) can be a bit cumbersome at times.

5Great quick refrenceDec 12, 2013
By Christopher
As A PT student I kept these on my desk at home for a quick reference and when I was doing my rotations, I carried them along with me. Not the most detailed instructions/info but they are just meant to serve as a quick guide/reference if you need a reminder (not to teach you something brand new). Also purchased the Neuro version when I got my license (which was very helpful as I prefer orthopedics but still see some neuro pt's come through my door).

3Not what I expectedAug 22, 2012
By Canadian Reader
This book is well-made and easy to follow, but it's not what I was hoping it would be.

I was looking for a concise guide to evaluating various joints, but this books seems to be more of a compendium of information about joints and how to test them. In terms of doing a quick screen of a joint to evaluate for a vague patient complaint, I don't know how helpful this will be. If you are looking for a guide to every possible way to evaluate every part of a joint, this may be what you're looking for (eg. maybe on an Ortho rotation).

5comprehensive and usefulJun 03, 2013
By Lauren
I bought this book when I started my clinical internships and it was really helpful for reviewing before evaluations and also when determining special tests to confirm diagnoses. My CI was open to me utilizing it, and the PTAs in the clinic were asking me where I got it. It gives a good overview of anatomy and possible diagnoses with their hallmark assessment results. Would definitely recommend for anyone starting out!

5Awesome reference for the clinic.Jan 09, 2013
By Ron
I use this almost everyday in the clinic. I keep it on my desk and it is really easy to look something up without dragging out large textbooks. I would definitely recommend this, especially for new grads!
