Reviews"This can be a helpful resource for trainees preparing for the neurology board examination or yearly in-service exams. It lends itself to an expedited review of pertinent testable material for the standard neurology examinations without major omissions. The second edition improvements are worthwhile, with online content supplementing the text-based learning. Using this as a guide for review (adding other supplements as necessary) would be helpful for most neurology trainees studying for the board examination." - Doody's Reviews
Reviews of the First Edition:
