Reviews - What do customers think about Vascular Neurology: Questions and Answers?
Not perfect, but I'd recommend it Jul 14, 2008
I used this book to study for my Vascular Neurology boards. I did pass. I think that the questions are tougher and often cover topics that you'd never encounter on the actual test (which was fairly tough, I may add). There is a paucity of good resources for this exam, and I would definitely recommend this book as an ADJUVANT in your studies. If you utilize this book the week before the test, after you've read Caplan and all the AHA/ASA guidelines, I think it will be of great value.
May not be worth it Jun 12, 2008
This volume is intended to help neurologists study for Vascular Neurology Boards. The book is useful in that it lays out what a candidate needs to study when approaching these boards, but some may find its irritations and errors more of a hindrance than a help. The book is plagued by vague questions and poorly constructed answer sets (questions 8, 49 and 162). Some questions address information simply not relevant to human medicine (2, 44 and 314, for example). In some cases, the "correct" answers are not correct - question 61 displays the wrong chemical structures for the thienopyridines, and the answer supplied for question 22 is simply wrong. Other questions cover trivialities - eponyms for brainstem syndromes (127) and facts about neurological illnesses in historical figures (163, 253). Most damaging, the "right" answer in a few questions suggests a course of action unsupported by evidence or expert opinion (185). There are many other problems - including poorly reproduced photographs of imaging and pathology, and MRIs presented without information on the sequence displayed. The material covered was, in my opinion, "tougher" than the actual stroke boards, so a candidate using this volume as a study guide will not be overconfident going into the exam.
