Please do not waste this much time studying Neuro. I spent 3 hours reading Neuro Anatomy made Ridiculously Simple and neuro was one of my highest areas on Step 1 even though I did not do very well in my neuro class 1st year. Neuro makes up a small part of Step 1 and the questions do not require an incredibly deep understanding of the material. Please don't spend 90+ hrs studying it.
yes HY neuroanatomy is a terrific book. but dont get caught up trying to memorize everything in it. some of the locating defects and specific syndromes, cerebellar pathways are low yield. there is a ton of info in that book its just so condensed. but do make sure you feel comfortable w/ the anatomy pictures in the front of the book.
HY Neuro is a magnificent book but if you feel like you need just a bit more substance or clarification then Neuroanatomy by Crossman is an easy 175 page read. Lots of colored pictures and clinical examples.
