    Are u sure the problem is only with the area of Broca? I think u have a problem with that sensitive area called WERNICKE'S AREA.
    Develop that area and u might just be normal... :D :D

    O.K. I was really trying to be serious with that failed attempt at humor. What is the best way to study for the Neuroscience NBME? I'm probably going to use High-Yield. Any thoughts?

    Use high-yield. BRS Neuro is not very good.

    Also (as i am currently freaking out over the boards in less than two months) I would do First-aid as well.
    Do the part of the anatomy section (neuroanatomy) and relevant parts of the physio section. That will help out bc chances are your neuro course didnt emphasize the key high yield topics.

    good luck

    I think that BRS Neuro and HiYield are basically the same book. One has questions and one doesn't, but other than than I think that they are about the same.

    I just took the shelf. Most of the questions were in the BRS book. I suggest carefully reading it over. Also look over the Chung BRS Anatomy book. There were quite a few periphrial nerve questions about the Brachial Plexus, and other upper extremities. Know what the axilliary, ulnar, median, and radial innervate.

    The test sucks!

    I'm O.K. with upper limb innervation and brachial plexus, so I hope there is lots of questions on that area. I've got both the BRS and High-Yield and will probably study from the High-Yield and do the questions in the BRS. The author is the same and the books are similar but the High-Yield seems to be more succinct and better illustrated.

    Just got through taking the test. I was certainly glad for all the stuff about upper limb peripheral nerves/brachial plexus because those were just gimme points. Everything else was a bit more difficult. There were even some pathology and microbiology questions that I had never seen the information before.
