Read: Physical Examination and Health Assessment 8th Edition by Carolyn Jarvis

For paramedical students, this edition is invaluable for essays and more importantly clinical practice.  The book is very well written with clear pictures adding to the efficacy of this title. It is at a great level that promotes clinical acumen and development. Great layout, well written and answers most of the more random examination associated questions brought up in clinical skills practice. Been using it before the teaching session then as a reference during self-directed practice sessions. It also has a good concise need to know anatomy and physiology sections before the relevant skills as well as tables and pictures of pathologies.
