5.0 out of 5 starsGreat review book for shelfAug. 3 2010
By LC - Published on Amazon.com
I used this book to study for my neurology shelf exam. I thought this was a great review overall. I have not always been a huge fan of pretest, but I thought that the neuro pretest tested the right material with the right amount of repetition and also didn't include the minutia that some of the other pretest books do. I think that this book is a must have for anyone on neurology.

5.0 out of 5 starsThis book IS the shelf examFeb. 24 2011
By NikeTenis - Published on Amazon.com
I along with a number of friends read both this book and the case files for our neurology shelf exam. Although case files is generally an adequate review for the shelf, this was NOT the case for neurology. However, Pretest was absolutely dead on in its review of material for the shelf. I read the book quickly in the 2 days prior to the test, and I attribute my high score to its impeccable coverage of tested material. Highly recommended if you are studying for the shelf.

5.0 out of 5 starsA comprehensive reviewDec 16 2006
By Diego Casali - Published on Amazon.com
I think this book is great for USMLE Step 2 CK.
It gives you an exposure to a wide variety of neurological diseases, from horses to zebras.
If you want a great score in USMLE Step 2 CK, I think this book will be very helpful to build a solid body of knowledge in Neurology.
The new edition has many improved clinical vignettes and some new radiological images.
In summary, this is a great book!

3.0 out of 5 starsobvious editing flawsMarch 26 2012
By josh - Published on Amazon.com
the fact that they mistook JC virus for being Jakob-crutzfeldt disease was beyond shocking. That's all I have to say. Also, there is a lot of trivia in the book not likely to be tested on the exam.

2.0 out of 5 starsNot great but really the only option.Feb. 5 2011
By John David Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
This product is not great. There are MANY editing errors as well as simple inaccuracies. (Sensory nerves labeled as motor, etc.) It is clear that the book was never edited by a neurologist. (At least not a competent one). However, I don't know that there is a good alternative for the neuro shelf exam. I went through the entire book and I got just above the national mean.
