I showed it to a classmate and she loved it enough to buy a copy for herself. Rated 5 out of 5 B. Hummel — The best!!
This book saved me! I wanted to review basic neuroanatomy to better understand my own condition, and this book is helping me to understand what is going on. If I could give it more stars I would. Rated 5 out of 5 Mfiver — The DVD that comes with it has an amazing program that maps all the tracts — July 12, One of the most helpful tools for medical students during neuroscience modules.
The DVD that comes with it has an amazing program that maps all the tracts, brain areas and lesions. You can learn and test yourself pretty easily. Highly recommended.
I got the earliest edition of this book in , and learned from his explanations and the drawings. Goldberg, thank you for your clarifying explanations and your influence on my career! Rated 5 out of 5 John G.
Rated 5 out of 5 NoOne — Great review book… — July 12, Used this book in addition to my lecture material and really loved the simplified pictures. I find only after having a simplified picture of anatomy in my mind can I start inserting the more detailed parts.
This book really gave a great overall picture of neuroanatomy and included some diseases as well. Would recommend this book to a friend. Rated 5 out of 5 D. Meeker — Memorable clarity for a complicated subject — July 12, Might not do for obsessive-compulsive professional neuroanatomists; but for docs needing to remember how the patient in the exam room fits together, this is a great introduction or review!
It is full of hints on memorization and logic and is a must have. I am getting ready to start my neuro rotation and it is going to be reviewed before-hand and will come with me.
Rated 5 out of 5 S. Rated 5 out of 5 Melissa Tournet — great for nurses, doctors, and students — July 12, I used this book a lot to help study for my neuro nursing certification, and I use it still just to help refresh my memory on how it all works. Rated 5 out of 5 JCF — Finally — July 12, I think I may finally understand aspects of neuroanatomy and localizing lesions that have for some reason previously seemed incomprehensible. Now I comprehend — and it was painless.
Great help. Rated 4 out of 5 Danielle — Nice Companion Book — July 12, Very simplified book, which makes life so much easier for difficult neuro concepts! Definitely not a textbook but very nice for a companion to the textbook.
I also found this book quite useful for clearing up several clinical points that were not well covered in my neuroanatomy course. The only reason it gets 4 stars is that I wish some of the figures and drawings were a little better.
Rated 4 out of 5 Justin Hamlin — Useful — July 12, This book is not as good as the one for gross anatomy by the same author, but it is still quite helpful. I would not have gotten through neuroanatomy without it. It gives you a very useful big picture that puts together all of the minute details of the subject that can cause you to miss the forest for all the trees.
I would recommend this book just for that alone. Rated 4 out of 5 wenfei — A concise time-saver! It condenses a lot of material into a manageable set of major topics.
This makes it a lot easier to get into your head when time is of the essence. I lost my copy when I was moving so I bought a new copy. S this review is biased because I love the MRS series. Rated 5 out of 5 eliza13 — the best book for studying neuro — July 12, When studying for my specialist in neurologic PT exam, this was the go-to resource for my study group and me.
This book is great at helping solidify key points in your memory. Rated 5 out of 5 A. Simplicity is the hardest thing to achieve when it comes tu subjects like medicine, specially neuroanatomy. However, if you happen to find learning more entertaining and engaging when it includes a little bit of humor, imagination and creativity in its descriptions of what otherwise would be pretty dry material, then I would definitely suggest this book.
On the whole, however, this book should be used only as a supplement to a conventional neurology text in order to gain a better conceptual understanding of neurology and a basic overview of the organization of its components and how they interact, because it actual content is abbreviated to the point where specific details that I will be required to know for exams are excluded.
This little book and yes it is very small and thin is CHOCK-FULL of the most highly important facts and concepts that stand between the reader and a solid foundational understanding of complex neurological pathways. At first, the chapters seem short, incomplete, and slightly random. Just repeat and remember every little golden crumb of knowledge you can gleam from this book.
Faithfully internalize it, because you WILL see it again and again and again! My course examinations tested us to a high degree of detail, and needless to say I would have failed if I had relied ONLY on this book. For example, my course instructors emphasized the newly discovered pathways of the basal ganglia in extreme detail, while Dr. Goldman quickly glosses over the subject. That is simply not what this book offers. The chapter on brainstem is more precious than rubies.
Goldman teaches you to draw! However, after learning the material, this book helped consolidate everything in a helpful way so I could visualize everything in my head.
His diagrams are simple, but exactly what you want to explain the concept. He gives you tons of fun stories to memorize material as well. I also liked the clinical questions at the end of each section to test if I understood what I learned. I am completely amazed that the main points are all summarized so well in this tiny little book. He even has a CD to help you further, which I found to be excellent as well. I highly recommend it for a med student to go along with your normal neuroanatomy texts.
This book is meant to be used as a supplemental study tool and not as a primary source for information. For those overwhelmed by the extreme detail of scientific neuroanatomy, this book gives a simplistic overview of what is critical information as well as a guide of subjects to focus on when reading for detail with a primary source.
It may not be comprehensive, but it comes very very close. Rated 5 out of 5 Shanghai Kid — Essential for Medical Students — July 12, This skinny text is one of the few books that all medical students can read and benefit from. When I took neuroanatomy, it was regarded as the most difficult course in our first-year curriculum. Having read this book early in the course, and referring back to it several times, I got off to a great start.
In my junior residency,i had a hard time approaching the neurology patients, so needed neuroscience knowledge urgently. However most books i had met were tomes and time-consuming for me, also i had to get more back of neuroanatomy for understanding big books. Accidentally i started this book. This book prevented me from being burned out and saved my day and also gave me self-confidence on the neurology. So fantastic.
I highly recommend this book for all beginner stuck by neurology. After having lectures and tutorials involving all aspects of neuroanatomy already, such as gross anatomy of the CNS, cerebral blood flow, meninges, etc; reading the corresponding chapters of this book really, really helps it all gel in your own mind. The book is written in a nice conversational tone, like sitting and having a casual chat with your lecturer about the topic. Knowledge that seems vague after studying a textbook, lecture notes, a neuroanatomy atlas… really falls into place when you read this book.
Rated 5 out of 5 N. It gives you the basics and builds a foundation that you can build on. After a few hours with this book, I was weeks ahead of my classmates! Rated 5 out of 5 Mary B. Davison — fun — July 12, education made interesting.
Rated 5 out of 5 NM Mama — Thank heaven for this book — July 12, In my graduate Neuropsychology course, we were expected to already be familiar with brain anatomy. This book gave me a wonderful quick review and served as a reference through the rest of the course when I needed clarification on the location or purpose of a given structure.
It is so well written in an easy-to-read style that it deserves a Pulitzer. Rated 5 out of 5 Rafael Hachikyan — The appropriate foundation — July 12, During my medical study I always saw 3 mountains for my eyes. With this book I found a good path through one of them. One can always add details to her knowledge but time -resistible foundation of clear concepts is needed first.
Rated 4 out of 5 Len — Solid — July 15, Used this for my short neurology rotation as a MS3, comes in super handy. Easy to read and understand. Highly recommend. Rated 5 out of 5 Gina B. Add a review Your email address will not be published. Your rating.
