Excellent resource as long as you have pre-existing knowledge of medicine or clinical examination. Concise, but covers the essential points in a clinical exam and breaks down the exams by system. Also covers common presentations and pathologies of each system. As a nurse practitioner student, I found it very helpful for review and exam preparation.

This book is compact in size and packed full of useful information that can be applied in the clinical setting.
Great for med students, nurse practitioners or novice practitioners.

The special tests for assessing various body systems are great, especially for the MSK section.

Very detailed book. Perhaps a little too detailed for the purposes of studying for your OSCEs, but I can see this being perfect for residency (it was also recommended to me by a resident).

Not sure if its a Kindle problem, or a Essentials of Clinical Examination Handbook problem, but there is no PAGE view, meaning first, no page numbers and more importantly, no full page view such that the columns seen in the print version are more dynamic with how you stretch the window (wider or shorter) which leads to table values being cut off and sometimes really hard to find a setting (font size) and window stretch size that reveals the whole table. The view style maybe makes sense on an iPhone or tablet, but there should be a print page view on a pc or laptop with a full size monitor.

The book itself is very good for simple explanations of the very basics needed for patient assessment.
