  1. Jezzi – Great to brush up on neuro!

    I have practiced for almost 20 years and this brought together what I learned (and forgot) about neuro anatomy. Simplifies,organizes and makes your neuro exam more purposeful. I now perform exams better fit for the patient and their presentation and really make sense of my findings. I would recommend it for someone starting their clinical experience or a new position. Also great if you have been practicing awhile and want to continue to improve!

  2. bestwhit – Perfect Book

    Med student looking to possibly enter neurology. This book is perfect for rotations and will likely help me settle into a residency in neurology if I head that direction. Clear, concise, informative, easy to read. I really couldn’t recommend this more for anyone needing a little brush up on the neuro exam.

  3. Five Prime Studios – This is a must have for acute care providers!

    This is a great book for anyone working in an acute care environment. Paramedics, physicians, and nurses will all gain valuable neuro assessment skills with this book! Easy to read and follow, and an excellent review for anyone.

  4. Gregory M Chase – Great for the medical student hitting the wards PGY1, 2

    Purchased for my medical student, as an attending I find myself often filling in the gaps left from medical school as we translate didactic study to clinical practice. Excellent resource, easy to reach, comprehend, and apply to clinic practice right away. G. Chase

  5. Filipe Santos Magalhães – Very nice.

    It’s a great book.

    You will find informations that in other and greater books you don’t find.
    One of the best for the beginners.
