Compiled by nearly two dozen contributors and edited by four leading neurologists from the Cleveland Clinic, this comprehensive point form review presents thelatest 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 and concludes with a practice test. The first section covers basic neurosciences, including neurochemistry, clinical neuroanatomy, andgenetics. The next section discusses clinical neurology, with chapters devoted to the major diseases and disorders including stroke, head trauma, dementia,epilepsy, and movement disorders, among others. In the third section, NCS, EMG, EEG, evoked potentials, and sleep neurology are covered, with images to enhance understanding of fundamental neurophysiologic techniques. After a dedicated chapter on pediatric neurology, the final section contains nine chapters on subspecialties, including neurorehabilitation, adult and child psychiatry, neurourology, neuro-oncology, 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.
