Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:
⭐ I feel that this book is a good introduction to EEG for the budding neurology resident. In general, the USA residency system is front-loaded and this would not be useful for PGY2 year. However, this is excellent for the PGY3 resident starting his/her EEG rotation. It is brief enough to be easy to read, but detailed enough to be useful.I would not recommend this book for attending/consultant Neurologists or medical students, as it is too simple for attendings, and too complex for medical students.The book is well printed, the diagrams are clear and high resolution.
⭐ This review only refer to the book’s condition.Very poorly made. 5 minutes into reading it, pages started to detach. I would try to replace that, but it’s very disappointing , considering the fact that I waited almost 2 weeks for this book. Btw, from what I read so far, the book is actually good.
⭐ The content of the book is actually very good, but the binding is terrible. The book essentially comes apart. This book needs to reprinted using some other method. Every time you turn the page it comes out. The writing is very good.
⭐ Good book. However, many of the graphics are truncated on the right – which is likely more a result of poor amazon engineering re the kindle software than the book authors. If information in this area of truncation is salient (often is) this makes it quite difficult to learn the material. Googling makes evident that the graphic truncation is a generalized problem and not isolated to my system/setup.
⭐ This book (Kindle e-book version – I already have the paperback of the earlier edition) has some nice features and online content that could be quite helpful if someone with some technical expertise had been involved. The videos of the EEG tracings are too small to see the electrode labels or get a good view of the details of EEG activity they are trying to describe. The annotation is minimal and could be much more comprehensive. The viewer has no size controls and so there is no zoom function. Correct this issue and I would give it more stars. These problems are unfortunate for an otherwise fairly good quality atlas. I wanted to use it as a text for my classes but will keep searching.
⭐ It’s great!
⭐ This book has helped in so many ways. The book gives realistic EEG examples, and goes into great detail about the morphology, frequency, location of various waveforms that may be seen on an individual EEG. This book has helped me tremendously!! GREAT EEG TOOL!!
⭐ There is nothing I don’t like about this book. Wish they would have had a book like this so many years ago in school haha
⭐ Great for beginner neurologists! Handy and convenient book. Received in great condition!
⭐ Superfast Shipping! Happy Customer.
