Good overview of Neurology for the boards, mostly diagnosis and management and basic anatomy.

Had I known that the product was not 'like new' I would not have purchased the book.

Recently finished my neurology clerkship using this book and aced the exam. I am no wizard by any means, and I owe a lot to this book. At the start of my rotation, the clerkship director swore point blank that we needed to use the book Clinical Neurology, or we would fail the shelf exam. Unfortunately, our school was notorious for having students fail the neuro shelf more than any other exam. I took a descent look at Clinical Neurology and nervously decided against the clerkships director's advice choosing this book instead. It wasn't that Clinical Neurology was a poor book, but it was much too dense for what I wanted. It also had few clinical relevance and no questions, which really help you to hone in on your diagnosis and management skills. This book seemed much friendlier and allowed me enough time to read case files and pretest before I had to take the shelf. For a 3rd year medical student you will be able to easily understand each chapter with no additional references. Each chapter is well written and concise. I admire this book for its brevity: diagrams, tables, and pictures are much better than clinical neurology, who packs their differential diagnosis with so many things that it is depressing and unrealistic. I must agree, however, that this book may be a little too brief on describing treatments of various conditions, but let's face it. Most of the treatments in neurology are straight forward with a couple of drugs or you consult neurosurgery, and this book covered enough to help you understand how to use relevant drugs and when to consult surgery. If you decide to go with Clinical Neurology, don't be surprised if it leaves you hanging on treatment options as well. It isn't the book, it's the profession. Lastly, questions at the end of the book are very similar to what I found on my shelf. A couple questions were off the wall, but overall they were good practice. In summary, great book for clerkship and the shelf but too lengthy for STEP 2 review.

I loved this series in Medical School, but this, Psychology & (old edition) OB/gyn were not that helpful when it came to the Shelf exams. Still an all-around good resource with the essential basics, just not always what you see on the exams.

I used this book alone (with the 100 questions at the end) and did fine on my neurology shelf exam.
The book is concise and comprehensive, but it probably covers too much material that is not tested on the shelf and misses about 20% of the information that is tested.

I have loved this book! and it is so nice for a psych resident.
It may not be too comprehensive like Kauffmans neurology, but i was able to answer all the PRITE questions from reading this book for neurology.
Tables are good and they do have some practise quesns.

I got this book for my neurology clerkship/shelf exam. First of all, it arrived almost too late to use it (my fault ordering a used book from one of amazon's subsidiary warehouses). I read almost all of this book in 2 days, it is a very quick read. However, it does not provide detailed information about anything, and some of the info was very outdated even though it was the newest edition. It was actually a waste of my time, and I would not recommend this book. Case Files Neurology was much better.

Useful for a quick overview. Not very detailed. Questions in the back are very helpful. Very good condition on arrival.
