Description:

Written by the lead author of the popular review book Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards, Second Edition, this handy paperback is an essential tool for Board preparation and can be used independently or as a supplement to any review book.

Ultimate Review for the Neurology Boards: Question and Answer Companion contains structured test questions, answers, and explanations designed to help the busy clinician prepare for the neurology boards, the AAN√És RITE® exam, or recertification. Using a Q&A format to test recall and sharpen skills, all areas covered on the boards are represented.

The book opens with a set of test-taking tips, and then breaks down the field of neurology into 23 chapters covering all the subjects tested on the boards including psychiatry. Each chapter contains from 8 to 30 multiple-choice questions, with answers and complete explanations. Case-based questions with radiologic, electrophysiologic, and color pathologic findings are liberally represented in the mix to simulate the full range of question types you will encounter on exam day. The book closes with a Mock Board Examination containing 125 additional random questions and answers to build confidence and a collection of 70 High-Yield Facts and Tables for last-minute reinforcement before the exam.

User’s Review:

I was very excited that the ultimate review series came out with a qbook, but am rather disappointed in the book overall. To be fair I have only done about 4 chapters so far, but got so frustrated by the question format of the stroke section that I felt compelled to review the book. Almost all the questions in the stroke chapter gives a case scenario and ends with “all of the following are true except….” I dont think this sort of question format is conducive to learning. I did find the epilepsy questions written well. Most of the the chapters are written by residents. I don’t know how much experience they have regarding board questions. Have they even taken the boards yet? I haven’t finished yet, if I change my mind I will rewrite my review.

Thought I would update this review, now that have taken and passed the boards (2011). I stand by my initial impression that this book was not all that helpful. I was surprised by the question format of the actual boards. Not at all like the RITE exams. The questions were pretty straightforward with a short stem that tested your knowledge of content. So you either knew the answer or you didn’t. In that manner the question format was a lot like neuroprep. The most helpful qbook content wise was probably the purple Souyah book. A lot of my colleagues said the Penn review questions were right on track, but I didn’t have them. Good luck all!
