You'll find 500 clinical-vignette style questions and answers along with complete explanations of correct and incorrect answers. The content has been reviewed by students who recently passed their exams, so you know you are studying the most relevant and up-to-date material possible. No other study guide targets what you really need to know in order to pass like "PreTest"! 500 clinical-vignette style questions and robust answers "High Yield Facts" section pinpoints must know content for the shelf exam. Anatomical illustrations test your knowledge on neuroanatomy MRIs and CTs incorporate clinical knowledge of the nervous system. This title includes content that covers all the must-know topics: High Yield Facts, Gross Anatomy of the Brain, Development, The Neuron, The Synapse, Neurochemistry/Neurotransmitters, The Spinal Cord, The Autonomic Nervous System, The Brainstem and Cranial Nerves, Sensory Systems, Anatomy of the Forebrain, Motor Systems, and Higher Functions.
Here's what students are saying about "PreTest Neuroscience": ""PreTest Neuroscience" provides an outstanding Q&A review of the neuroscience topics most frequently tested by the USMLE Step 1. The explanations of correct and incorrect answers are unparalleled by any other review I've used". (J. Eva Selfridge, Fourth Year MD/PhD Candidate, University of Kansas School of Medicine). "This is a useful study aid for students preparing for exams. With a broad collection of questions offered, students can integrate their basic science knowledge in clinical scenarios". (Daniel Eskenazi, Fourth Year MD/PhD Candidate, University of Washington School of Medicine).
