[Macleod's] has lists scattered through the text in little boxes titled "Examination Sequence". Finally someone is telling us how to actually do the examinations we were meant to be practising all year. The book is logically broken down into the different systems, including a separate chapter for neonates and infants. Throughout the book there are tables and diagrams to illustrate the text in addition to the photos.

The 11th edition of Macleod's Clinical Examination has been well thought out to meet the needs of today's medical student, where contact with patients occurs from the very beginning. It includes relevant pictures, useful boxes highlighting the causes of various diseases and symptoms and clear, concise diagrams. There are snippets of imaging to help the reader familiarise themselves with it and where it can be used...A particularly good learning tool within the book is the patient examples at the end of each examination section. A run through of what to examine in a specific case is given in a step by step format. An easy to read, well laid out book which covers everything that medical students need to know to examine patients.
