This book will educate and prepare neurosurgery candidates who are preparing for the Neurosurgery Oral Board exam, the final step prior to board certification. It will also serve as a primer for the Goodman oral board course, a bi-annual course sponsored by the AANS. The book begins by initially describing the format of the oral board exam in the US. It then examines some of the concepts and techniques in the question-answer process that forms the major premise of the oral board exam. Each chapter contains 4-5 case presentations, which are organized similarly to how oral board questions are presented, with a brief history / physical and relevant imaging studies. The authors provide detailed analysis of these cases, as well as key references for each case with the salient conclusions from each referenced paper. While there are a few books that cover the board exams, none of them are specifically designed as case-based resources for oral board exam preparation. Goodman's Neurosurgery Oral Board Review focuses specifically on the oral board exam. Its primary intended audience is US, Canadian and British neurosurgeons who are preparing for the oral board, but it will also be a very appropriate resource for those who are trying to maintain competence in neurosurgery. Dr. Levi's edited text is authored by a group of long-standing, dedicated members to the course who have taught it for the last 15 years. With their extensive experience in teaching for the board exams, the skillset they bring to this book is unrivaled.
