Just received this book in the mail and already not liking it. Compared to the previous edition the book is smaller, also what i really dislike is that the soap notes for each diagnosis used to be on 2 pages side by side, now you have to flip the page to see the entire soap note which is a not good idea!!!! We’ll see how i feel once i begin reading the book.
This book was so helpful during my first weeks as an advance practice nurse. It was recommended to me by a fellow NP and it did not disappoint. A fast reference tutorial for treatment and proper documentation. I would recommend this book to experienced as well as fresh nurse practitioners. Five stars all the way.
I absolutely love the book. Brought the first ver a lot of years ago and had amazing use for it then. I’m was so excited to hear the fresh ver 2019 was out. Amazing tool for me as fresh nurse practitioner. This book addressed almost all common complaints in the basic care setting. Help with focus documentation and rapid logical thinking for POC. Love it! Plus, Slightly smaller in size to fit right in your lab coat. Hope to see newer ver of the other SOAP books. Amazing Job!
This application is very helpful for prepping for the licensing exams.... Its amazing for on the go review and fast quizzes. Perfect and very handy. I would highly recommend it. And a huge thanks to the developers for making such this app.. hold up the amazing work 👍👍
I UNINSTALLED this app IMMEDIATELY after seeing the permissions this application 'required.' As it wanted the app to run 24/7. The permission I'm referring to is the "Run At Begin Up" permission. There is absolutely NO NEED for that 'permission' to be in ANY app like this. An Antivirus should have such a permission request. Why would you ever wish this application to run in the background when your NOT using the app??? So I am willing to bet this app is (Farming) PRIVATE INFORMATION from the USER. Developer if that isn't the case, then EXPLAIN That Permission or REMOVE that "start up permission" all together. –👎 👎 👎 👎 👎
I have to say your application is the best in the market, for Family Physicians and General Practitioners. Just wonderful. Best for Family Medicine Board Exam Reviews. To the point and clear.- Dr Jason, Consultant Family Physician.MBBS, DNB (Family Medicine).
Perfect with a fatal issue .The content is very amazing but there is no method to return to where you was when you latest studied. You need to browse to where you was each time which makes it impossible to use given it includes more than 1600 questions
Hard to use I had problem selecting respond choices - the keyboard didn't begin reliably, the touch screen didn't map reliably, and it was difficult to erase errantly selected answers. Until these difficulties are fixed, the application is impossible to use.
I am a PA student in my clinical year. I used this book almost exclusively to support prepare for my PAEA end of rotation exam. This book helped me to do very well on my EOR - much better than I was expecting or hoping for. The subjects emphasized in this book were very related to the subjects emphasized on the exam and some of the practice questions were almost identical to exam questions. I would highly recommend this to any PA student - especially for clinicals and EOR exams.
Amazing primarily outpatient reference book that is written and sourced well. I especially appreciate the strength of recommendations it provides for different treatments, etc. I will be referring to this book frequently moving forward in my career! The a lot of images that are included in the book aid in confirming diagnoses, especially with certain dermatologic conditions.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!Not well written, but most problematic are the answers and explanations of answers. A lot of of the answers are wrong. For example, if the correct respond is "A" the explanation may say it is "B" and then go on to discuss why "A" is the right answer. I understand an editor missing one or two stuff like this in a. book with over 800 pages, but this problem came up many, a lot of times through the whole book making it distracting and leaving you to wonder what the right respond truly is in a lot of instances. This is ok if you truly know the material. I was able to recognize the mistake most of the time, but a few questions left me wondering and searching other sources for the real respond -- the reason you obtain a review book is to have a concise review, not to have to check the validity of the author's answers. Even if these major issues didn't exist, the book would only rate 3 stars
I purchased this book to study for the shelf exam during my family medicine clerkship. It's full of various conditions and diseases commonly seen in a family medicine clinic. Each chapter (condition) is written clearly and highlights key points with obvious headings, boldface, etc. It is not a short book — I was unable to read through the entire thing during my one-month clerkship (granted, I did not spend hours on end reading). I might suggest using it as a quick-read reference as cases come up in your clerkship, or maybe just read the cases for diseases you wish to shore up on.I was happy to search references to USPSTF recommendations for every routine healthcare intervention/preventive practice, such as AAA monitoring, vaccinations for the elderly, indications for statins, etc. Obviously, the accuracy of this data will depend on the edition you have vs. the year of the most latest USPSTF recommendations... but the shelf exam (and Step 2 CK) are usually behind the times anyway.Each chapter begins with a case file. The cases are very descriptive and contain dozens of information... sometimes more than you would realistically have. Regardless, each case serves as a amazing introduction to the subject at hand, launching immediately into an analysis of significant features of the case. These features are laid out clearly on the second or third page of the chapter. They are subsequently discussed during the remainder of the chapter, sometimes delving into general concepts not necessarily limited to the disease under discussion. Some may view this as a poor thing, but I felt this style was appropriate. The case files are intended to set a context in which you learn fundamentals... not to be cookie-cutters. This is in line with how medicine ought to be actice questions are found in each chapter, but I didn't feel they were that great. They are very primary and essentially serve to remind you of a concept your just read. You shouldn't use them as self-tests. For that purpose, use UWorld or something.Overall, amazing book. Improvements could be created in the practice questions and possibly in recommending a DDx along with specific tests/treatments to be considered for each condition.
Amazing book to review at the end of the day of a family medicine rotation. The book first presents the case followed by answers to the case, analysis, definition of the disease, clinical approach with organized tables that correlate to the disease, and finally comprehension questions. Amazing method to reinforce your knowledge.
I have been reading medical journals, books, board review questions every single day for years. Naturally, I have gone through a lot of (probably most) of board review books. I have read every single page of Swanson's Editions 6th and 7th. (I do not recall if I have read 4th and 5th editions since I no longer have these.) By getting this 8th edition, I have been wondering if previous editions was so poorly written and edited. I felt it would be just waste of time to go through this poorly written board review. Each Question has 5 multiple choice answers. Answers of most of questions are none of the above or all of the above! Some answers are just plain statistics which we do not even care. One of question in the constipation in the elderly it's the following: an old man with metastatic cancer has increased pain. His pain has increased despite of increasing the dose of morphine. They do not even mention the zone of the pain. They except us to think constipation is the cause! It is very hard for me read this book daily especially I just finished Graber and Wilbur's which was so good. I would recommend G and W instead of this trash. I do not think it would be worth 70 US!Addendum: I just took board exam. This is what I would recommend. If you do not have time, just go for AAFP board review courses. If you have more time, then obtain Graber and Wilber's as well. The B and W will enrich your knowledge in practical way. Also go through USPSTF recommendations. If you do these, nobody can possibly fail the board exam.
Overall, this book is an perfect review of common conditions you will see during your FM clerkship. However, the book is outdated, appearing to latest be updated in 2013. This makes certain chapters, in particular the substance abuse chapter, largely inaccurate with respect to today. Additionally, guidelines such as diagnostic criteria for HTN and pre-diabetes vs. DM are inaccurate. If you know this going in and hold your eye out for it, I still think it's a amazing review. I also think 6 years is a small long for the publisher to not release a fresh edition.
Full of pictures and useful facts about diseases and treatments. I refer to it often in my practice. Not just for family medicine; I think it would be of interest to most physicians, PAs and NPs in direct patient care specialties, especially IM and derm. A large, heavy, comprehensive professionally written and simple to read text.
I bought this book to support me review throughout my FNP program. The book is too simplified and basic, probably better for undergraduate programs. The book does not even describe the mechanisms of medications used for medical conditions. Just a waste of money. I give 1 begin just for the packaging and content
I found it very useful. The only problem is that I bought the kindle edition which still has very amazing resolution but searching specific content/disease was not so simple on kindle as compared to paper edition like any other book(may be its my problem only).This is an perfect book for GP/Family Physicians but I am sure residents will search both graphics and text very useful as well.
Used this book in preparation for end of rotation exams and PANCE. Amazing book overall, with beautiful decent explanations. Each chapter has roughly 15-30 questions. The fresh copies of this book also come with an application that you can put on your phone.
I had used the Pediatrics Case Files book before and loved it, but I have been disappointed with this book. Perhaps this is more of a issue with family medicine as a specialty, but I felt like this book superficially addressed everything without teaching you much. For example, it had a chapter on "pediatric abdominal pain and vomiting" that just had one paragraph summaries of common conditions, without every teaching you anything knew about any of those subjects. It all felt like superficial knowledge I already knew. To be fair, there are some chapters that are better, especially those that cover health maintenance and prevention topics.
Go through this whole book. Create some quizlet or anki notecards with the items that’s fresh to you. Do every case. Go through internal medicine Uworld (as much as you can—there’s a TON of questions) and you’ll rock the shelf. Scored honors with this book as my main text.
I used this book during my third year family medicine rotation to prepare for the shelf exam. The format is the same question/answer format of the other Deja Review series. The info was presented in a concise manner. I really liked the charts, for example of diabetic medications, and they seemed to be must know info for the shelf. Other info however [email protected]#$%! or miss and seemed to be geared more towards pimping questions than shelf specific. Overall a good, relatively short book, that was a amazing overview of ambulatory medicine. Supplemented with question banks and ambulatory chapters of other textbooks makes for a solid tool for shelf prep.
I'm an MS3 on my FM rotation right now. I bought this book because I felt like the ambulatory section on the main SU2M book was beautiful amazing but too short. I was excited to have a amazing main resource to sit and read for FM since there's nothing out there that's really specific for this rotation. I thought this book would be just that; a amazing basic resource for both the wards and the shelf exam, but it falls short in both categories. This book was more or less a watered down, rehashed ver of the main book. There's some things in this book that wasn't included in the main book, but nothing really too significant. Something that's both a pro and a con about this book is it's succinctness. They really obtain straight to the point about how some of these conditions present, how to diagnose them and how to treat them, but there's not much in the method of explanations. I obtain that it's just a "review" book, but it also advertises itself as an "essential review of family medicine for success on the rotation and shelf exam". At best, it's a step up above decent for the wards, and only decent for the shelf. The major lack of info prevents it from being a amazing resource. On the plus side, the succinctness means it's very possible to finish the book in one or two days of reading. I think if you're using this book as a supplement to some other resource it'll serve you fine. Just don't expect this book to provide you with enough information to perform well on the FM rotation or shelf exam by itself.
This book drags on endlessly and even though happenings happen, there is a sameness to it all that makes you feel as if time has stopped. Around 70℅, I asked myself why was I still reading this. There was not a single hero I liked or cared about what happen to them. Mary, the MC, is a wishy-washy dimwit. She has no personality and changes her mind everytime someone tells her to. The male lead, Mr Weather by is a total jackwagon. All the relations are tawdry and scheming...and unbelievable. I really regret spending any time reading this. It is dismal and hopeless. You'd think with all the gin Mary was slinging back things would have been livelier. I feel like a drink myself after this book. Well written and edited, but what a sad small review. "Read this, the editing is nicely done!" I'd rather typos and a amazing story.
I’m a amazing fan of stories written from family history and VL McBeath has not disappointed. In this gentle story where life does not always go to plan, and where family relationships fluctuate, the reader is afforded an perfect insight into early Victorian life for the working class people of Birmingham. A lot of characters were introduced quite quickly and it took some effort to sort them out, but this is a story about the difficulties women faced and the decisions they had to create to survive. I’m looking forward to the next instalment.
This is a fast read and the family drama sucked me in like a soap opera. Not much creative detail to set the stage or discover the inner workings of the characters. All the characters are relatable with their amazing and poor qualities. It's a amazing read for guilty pleasure, and I'm eager to read the next in the series.
A fairly engaging story but I absolutely hate when a book has no end whatsoever and just creates questions to create you have to by the next book. It's amazing when there are a series of stories that use the same characters like "The girl with the Dragon Tatoo" but this book was more of an ongoing soap opera with no end in sight.
I very much enjoyed the historical authenticity of this book. Amazing lessons of just how far women have come in some parts of the globe over the years. Love how the characters are interwoven in this book to tell a unbelievable story. Includes some romance without the arrival that most books have. Can't wait to continue the series.
Women of today need to be aware of what is was like to live in Victorian times, and I don’t mean the unreal romance accounts told in most Victorian historical romance. Only by understanding the difficulties faced by women such as the heroine of Hooks & Eyes can modern readers appreciate the freedoms they have today, and right to ensure me don’t lose those rights. This promises to be a unbelievable family saga series.
A historical romance based on real facts. Takes put in Birmingham, England during the Victorian era when machines are coming into vogue and with middle class women and what they had to do to survive in a man’s world. Mary is a powerful willed women who is a widow and marries Mr Wetherby for the sake of her 2 children. Family relationships and disowning and love triangles abound. I did have some issue with Mary being married to Mr Wetherby for a lot of years and he is still referred to as Mr Wetherby! I enjoyed the storyline but was getting confused by the vast array of family members that kept being introduced.
A lot of interesting characters, well-developed, amazingly detailed and realistic. But a small predictable. Descriptions of towns, houses, family gatherings, family conflict, very, very well written. Had Mary not married the second time, the plot would have headed in a whole various direction
The application works great, my agent is amazing but the coverages once in a collision weren't what was expected. Almost as if some of the staff behind the phone were working to create an already poor situation worse. I guess in the happening there is any possible grey locations in your policy, ask questions or you may end up learning the hardway. I thought my situation was straight forward but I was wrong. My agent helped the best he could to obtain the company to bend a small but not much. I appreciated his work!
