For more than 20 years, I am seeing that the nightmare of medical students, interns, as well as residents in training programs is in taking a proper neurological history and performing step-by-step neurological examination. On the contrary, during my student-ship, I was enjoying this task. I attributed this love between me and neuroscience workup to some points, including: 1) My keen to learn the technique, 2) I went back and reviewed relevant neuroanatomy knowledge, and 3) practiced and re-practiced the technique on my own and in front of colleagues and seniors. Thus, my advice for all of those who are keen to master the neurological history taking and examination is to take steps into the previously mentioned points, as well as involve themselves in small group exercises. I believe that many medical students and junior residents do not know what to look for, how to find neurological signs, and how to interpret their findings. This book insights medical students, interns, as well as residents in training programs on how to obtain informative history and perform a thorough neurological examination.
