It was 6 AM and the New Orleans Hilton lobby was dotted with young neurologists in suits wandering aimlessly, many mumbling to themselves, all with the eyes of a rough night on call. This was the morning of my Oral Board examination. Despite three years as a neurology resident, additional time as a fellow, and the experience of having performed probably more than 1000 neurological examinations by this time, I was deathly afraid of what this day would bring. The exam organizers had met with us the day before and given the overwhelming message to "RELAX. " Certainly, this is sound advice prior to any examination, but the requisite for passing is kn- ing the material. This requires preparation, as well as practice. An excellent first step is to use Eroboghene Ubogu's Neurology Oral Boards Review in the months before you begin studying for the Boards in earnest. A quick read will provide an internal assessment of your strengths and weaknesses, which should guide the study plan. The major neurology textbooks, which anyone sitting for the Boards should already have in their possession, should be studied. Finding a senior faculty member to quiz you is very helpful. There is no substitute for finding one of your former re- dency supervisors or a senior colleague in your group practice to perform a simulated Oral Board session.

Back cover copy

Rapid recall of vast amounts of factual material is the key to success in both the Neurology Oral Board examination and in everyday patient care. In Neurology Oral Boards Review: A Concise and Systematic Approach to Clinical Practice, Eroboghene E. Ubogu offers a comprehensive review of relevant topics and examination strategies needed to pass the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Part II (Oral) exam, complete with up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines on diagnosis and management in clinical neurology. The author has written the book specifically to satisfy the requirements of the ABPN, with clinical case vignettes designed to allow the examinee to localize the plausible disease process, to indicate which investigations may help in establishing a diagnosis, to deduce treatment plans, and to make a prognosis, including patient and family counseling. The emergency cases test the ability to think critically when faced with a neurological emergency, putting a premium on resuscitation, patient safety, and rapid high-yield investigations. The general neurology cases reflect the breadth of disorders experienced in hospital and outpatient settings. The author also provides a detailed description of the oral ABPN examination and suggests a study regimen that takes into account the difficulties of allotting time to prepare while in post-residency training or practice.
Comprehensive and case-based, Neurology Oral Boards Review: A Concise and Systematic Approach to Clinical Practice provides an authoritative approach to clinical problem solving in neurology, as well as an effective and time-efficient method to master the factual material needed to successfully complete the Neurology Oral Boards.
