Help Preping Step 2 ck Neurology

Hi there,
I have read the online reviews concerning the recommandation for neurology. Case files and kaplan step 2 ck will most likely be my study tools regardless the popularity of blueprints..

Now i am wondering what's the difference between the 2007 and the 2012 version of case files neurology?
I have the 07 version but i dont know if i should get the newest one,2012?

thanks in advance,
T

I have not heard about Blueprints. Is it good?

I just did Neuro a couple of days only from MTB 2. I just want to finish my first read as quickly as possible before jumping into questions. Wondering if that is sufficient because it was surprisingly and pleasantly concise.

I agree with you Spacecadet, I also just finished neurology form MTB 2 and it was very straight foward compare to the headache neuro was in step 1. Are we missing out on something? Should we be investing more time on it or just leave it to UW to fill the gaps?

Can someone please shine the the light on this, thanks.

Could be essential tremor or Huntington's if there's a family history of that.

ck neurology is easier than step 1 neurology. But MTBs are deficient. Uworld fills ALL the gaps. It you still dont feel confident you can do the neurology portion from Kaplan Internal Medicine LN. Its pretty straightforward and makes a good base for starting off with Uworld.
