I started reading HY Neuro, but its not really giving me a good review on first year Neuro like I thought it would.
Can someone help me focus my studying??? Should I just focus on my path course for now since most of the questions will probably be clincal anyways? This seems like such a huge section to leave for the very last two weeks of school! Thanks a lot AZCOM.
Neuroanatomy != neuropathology
They are very very different. If you had trouble with neuroanatomy, that doesn't at all mean you'll have trouble with neuropath (assuming you're talking about reviewing for your class). If you're trying to get a head start on reviewing for step 1, then yes, reviewing some neuroanatomy would be a good idea while you go over neuropath (e.g. reviewing pathways of basal ganglia while you learn about parkinson's).
