The layout of the material is extremely conducive in acting as a study aid...this book is an absolute must-have for anyone looking to excel at the written boards. In many ways, this book is unmatched in the sheer amount of content a full reading can deliver since it covers the entire Greenberg text. -- Neurosurgery
As a study guide for current neurosurgical residents, this review book is an excellent adjunct to the Greenberg Handbook of Neurosurgery. It allows the reader to utilize the text as a study guide rather than solely as a reference book. -- World Neurosurgery
Written by an esteemed educator and founder of the renowned Chicago Review Course in Neurological Surgery (TM), this updated review reflects substantive content additions to the 8th edition. The two prior editions of the Rapid Review were must-have companions that fully leveraged the vast knowledge contained within Greenberg's legendary tome.
Through repetition and spot-on questions, this book brings clarity to a specialty whose sheer depth and breadth presents comprehension and retention challenges. This book helps readers determine if they are retaining key data and information, thereby providing a robust self-assessment study tool for ABNS certification.
The 7th companion generated glowing reviews, such as: "A wonderful example of how to turn the classic Greenberg text into a study guide rather than an encyclopedic reference to a young neurosurgeon" -AANS Young Neurosurgeons News
Question formats include fill in the blank, open-ended questions, true/false, matching, and identification of various elements in diagrams/figures
Mnemonic devices, helpful hints, clinical pearls, and study charts aid in comprehension and long-term retention
Greenberg chapter headings are used (e.g. 4.2.3), thereby providing clear-cut Handbook references
This book is designed to help neurosurgical residents prepare for the ABNS primary examination and/or rounds. It will enable practicing neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, and neuropathologists to develop a storehouse of knowledge required to efficaciously examine, analyze, diagnose, and treat neurosurgical patients.
