Description

Thoroughly updated for its Third Edition, Neurology for the Boards provides a comprehensive, methodical review of the neurology material candidates must master for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology examination. The book equips neurologists and psychiatrists at all levels of training with the up-to-date knowledge required for both certification and recertification exams. Chapters are written in an easy-to-follow outline format that facilitates study and retention. This edition's new co-author, Paul R. Carney, MD, provides greatly expanded coverage of pediatric neurology in each chapter. Coverage of pain disorders-including headache, complex regional pain syndromes, and radiculopathy-has also been expanded.
