I purchased this book at the suggestion of our Pediatrics Clinical instructors, although we use a textbook by a different publisher/author. So far, it has served me well only a handful of times in clinical, but oh my, is this book sure handy for test taking. If you HATE searching through five million pages of a textbook trying to remember everything for a test, get this book or one like it.
PROS: It lines up Pathophysiology, Signs and Symptoms, Diagnostics, Treatment, and Nursing Care Management for you efficiently.
CONS: The section on normal-for-age vital signs is almost completely worthless in my opinion. Very few ranges are listed, and not all reportable vital signs are included.
