Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards: Edition 3

Free sample

Now in its third edition, Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards is the definitive study guide for anyone preparing for the neurology board exam, RITE, or MOC exam. Compiled by nearly two dozen contributors and edited by four leading neurologists, this comprehensive point form review presents the latest research, data, and knowledge on all aspects of neurology that you need to know to succeed on these exams.

The book is organized into five sections for easy access. Section I covers basic neurosciences, including neurochemistry, clinical neuroanatomy, and genetics. Section II discusses clinical neurology, with chapters devoted to the major diseases and disorders, including stroke, head trauma, dementia, epilepsy, and movement disorders, among others. In Section III, NCS, EMG, EEG, evoked potentials, and sleep neurology are covered, with images to enhance understanding of fundamental neurophysiologic techniques. Section IV covers pediatrics, while the final section contains nine chapters on subspecialties, including neurorehabilitation, adult and child psychiatry, neurourology, neurooncology, and more.

Each chapter has been fully reviewed, revised, and updated to reflect current knowledge and practice and presents the information in an outline format, ideal for test preparation. Crucial topics and high-yield data are highlighted in bold or italic for maximal retention. With several new features, such as suggested readings and a “cheat sheet” at the end of each chapter, this third edition of Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards is essential reading for anyone taking the neurology boards or MOC exam.

The Revised Third Edition Features:

  • A completely revised and expanded practice test with all new questions

  • “NB” (nota bene) items, which highlight key points to remember for the exams

  • A “Cheat Sheet” in each chapter, with quick pearls, mnemonics, and definitions

  • Suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter

An engagingly written text that bridges the gap between neuroanatomy and clinical neurology


“A wonderfully readable, concise, but by no means superficial book that fits well in the current pedagogic environment.”
From the Foreword by Allan H. Ropper, MD

Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy delivers a clear, logical discussion of the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease. Written in a clear, concise style, this unique text offers a concise overview of fundamental neuroanatomy and the clinical localization principles necessary to diagnose and treat patients with neurologic diseases and disorders. Unlike other neurology textbooks that either focus on neuroanatomy or clinical neurology, Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy integrates the two in manner which simulates the way neurologists learn, teach, and think.

Clinical Neurology and Neuroanatomy is divided into two main sections. In Part 1, clinically relevant neuroanatomy is presented in clinical context in order to provide a framework for neurologic localization and differential diagnosis. The diseases mentioned in localization-based discussions of differential diagnosis in Part 1 are then discussed in clinical detail with respect to their diagnosis and management in Part 2. Part 1 can therefore be consulted for a neuroanatomical localization-based approach to symptom evaluation, and Part 2 for the clinical features, diagnosis, and management of neurologic diseases.

FEATURES
• A clear, concise approach to explaining the complex relationship between neuroanatomical structure and function and neurologic disease
• Numerous full-color illustrations and high resolution MRI and CT scans
• Explanatory tables outline the clinical features, characteristics, and differential diagnosis of neurologic diseases and disorders
