Why is it that national board exam questions seem to overemphasize things that you will most likely NEVER encounter clinically (eg Kluver-Bucy, pheochromocytoma, etc, etc)? It seems like all this does is require you to memorize all this crap you will never use to the detriment of your knowledge about things that are actually clinically relevant.

Do they assume that you will pick up the everyday stuff quickly during clinical rotations? Any ideas?
