IMO, these are the "gold standard" texts:jyglee said:I'm about to finish my PGY1 in internal medicine and heading to the first year of neurology. I wonder what good neurology books I should read ? Thank you for your information!

Ok for med student, not adequate for neurology resident.I am a MS4 about to start my internship. These are books I read to help with neurology during med school.
1. Clinical Neurology by Hankey and Wardlaw
- VERY good reference book. Written in a very helpful format that breaks down a disease into epi, etiology, differential, diagnostic approach, among other things. Explains how a given disease is differentiated from others. A staple among our residents
2. Harrison's Neurology in Clinical Medicine
- Given to me by a second year resident who used it during her intern year. Said it was spectacular. Her credentials: top of her medical school class, 260+ on both Steps, and generally known around our hospital as having "upper level" resident knowledge.
3. Neurology Secrets
- great Q&A book to mix things up. Put it somewhere you have idle time (toilet, coffee table, etc) and just peruse on occasion. Good way to stay sharp
