Rapid recall of vast amounts of factual material is the key to success in both the Neurology Oral Board examination and in everyday patient care. In Neurology Oral Boards Review: A Concise and Systematic Approach to Clinical Practice, Eroboghene E. Ubogu offers a comprehensive review of relevant topics and examination strategies needed to pass the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Part II (Oral) exam, complete with up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines on diagnosis and management in clinical neurology. The author has written the book specifically to satisfy the requirements of the ABPN, with clinical case vignettes designed to allow the examinee to localize the plausible disease process, to indicate which investigations may help in establishing a diagnosis, to deduce treatment plans, and to make a prognosis, including patient and family counseling. The emergency cases test the ability to think critically when faced with a neurological emergency, putting a premium on resuscitation, patient safety, and rapid high-yield investigations. The general neurology cases reflect the breadth of disorders experienced in hospital and outpatient settings. The author also provides a detailed description of the oral ABPN examination and suggests a study regimen that takes into account the difficulties of allotting time to prepare while in post-residency training or practice.
