Action-research was accomplished at the Federal University of Goiás College of Nursing in 1998 aiming at implementing and analyzing the teaching resources of physical pulmonary examination through the problem-based method. The Arch Method Phases were developed with sophomores in the undergraduate Nursing Course. During the Conclusion Hypothesis phase, the need of various activities in order to fix the theme was observed. In the theoretical and psycho-motor evaluation, we verified that the students had more difficulty in performing percussion and palpitation. It was concluded that the application of the problem-based pedagogy in physical examination was feasible.
