This is the seventh edition of a self-assessment book in neurology. The first edition was published in 1992. This book is primarily directed at medical students and house officers. However, general practitioners and junior neurology residents could also benefit from it. The style and the complexity of the questions have been designed in such a way to help prepare candidates for clerkship examinations and step 2 of the US Medical Licensing Examination. The book is organized in 19 chapters, covering major categories of the neurological disorders, including dedicated chapters on neurological examination with diagnostic tests and neurological emergencies. There are 500 multiple-choice and matching-set questions. The matching-set questions are presented at the end of each chapter. Each question has a corresponding referenced answer, where the correct response is provided and the author addresses the major issues raised by the question. Some chapters include pictorial questions. Ten figures are presented in the appendix to highlight the relevant major neuroanatomical landmarks. The bibliography is provided for readers who are interested in further reading and obtaining more information on various neurological subject matters.
