Welcome to our new feature: NEUROLOGY FLASHCARDS! Understanding is paramount, but unfortunately, one aspect of academic success does rely on simple memorization and repetition. In our new Neurology flashcards feature, we have taken the most commonly seen rote memory topics and “buzzwords” from neurology board and RITE* exams and made easy to use flashcards. These work on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. This is a new feature, so please contact us if you see any issues! FLASHCARDS will be available for all chapters soon!
