Neurosurgical Review is a true study guide, based on real-life board exam experiences. It helps you focus on the subjects and concepts that are important for passing the exams, rather than just being a simple question-and-answer book. It is organized in the same way as the exam itself, so that you will be comfortable at test time.
The two greatest strengths of the book are its outline form and its index. The outline form allows you to gauge your progress through the review without getting lost in the confusing details that make so many texts inefficient for reviewing. The index is very detailed, allowing you to quickly find the material you seek.
This book is a small investment that helps ensure your successful completion of the exams.
