    What books are considered best for neuroanatomy and embryo? For embryo, I was thinking of relying on UW and FA but I don't know if that's a safe gamble. I also have BRS Embryo, but I'm thinking that may be too detailed..

    Has anyone used Clinical Neuroanatomy made ridiculously simple?

      Haven't taken the test yet, so I can't say what's "best", but neuro is one of my weakest subjects and seems to be one of the areas where FA is seriously lacking. (Nothing on brainstem vascular syndromes? Did I miss this somewhere?)

      In any case, I used Roadmap to help with Neuro during school and I just finished reading it cover to cover and I feel a whole lot better. Roadmap definitely helped my understanding a lot; although it may be a little too detailed in parts. I also used HY, mostly just for the images (CT, etc.) which are notably lacking in Roadmap.

      Summary: if you're comfortable w/ Neuro and just want a quick refresher, I bet HY would be plenty. If you're like me, and still look for the dentate in the oral cavity, you might want to add something with a little more exposition, like Roadmap. Just my thoughts.

      Edit: BTW, I'm sticking to FA & UW for embryo.

        I actually like neuro and have no trouble with it to be honest. I use USMLE ROADMAP Neuroscience and online sources for further studying. It works out well.

          Is this the High Yield version you guys used?
          http://www.amazon.com/High-Yield-Ne...d_bbs_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1209517842&sr=1-1

          So overall you would suggest using both HY and USMLE RoadMap? Will that be a little much for a topic that will be relatively low yield?

          As I said above, Neuro is one of my Achilles heels, so I needed to spend more time with it and to use a more in-depth book. If you don't, then don't. Plenty of people have used only HY Neuro and done just fine.

          Summary: if you're comfortable w/ Neuro and just want a quick refresher, I bet HY would be plenty. If you're like me, and still look for the dentate in the oral cavity, you might want to add something with a little more exposition, like Roadmap. Just my thoughts.
