    to consult with VERSUS to consult (no preposion)

    Hi, in the Longman Exam Coach, I ran into two sentences:
    If symptoms persist, consult a doctor without delay.
    I need to consult with my lawyer.

    So, is there any rule of thumb about using the prepostion 'with' after the verb 'consult'?

    Thanks in advance

    Rule of thumb: don't use with after consult.

    Use 'confer with' if that's what you mean.
