Repertory- is a book that consists of a list of symptoms usually arranged in particular order from head to toe, along with their indicated medicine. “It is a systematically and logically arranged index to Homoeopathic Materia Medica.”

Symptoms mentioned in the repertory are known as “Rubrics”.

Medicines are graded based on the efficiency, clinical verification of that particular symptom as Bold, Italics, Romans or in parenthesis, depending on the philosophy of the compiling author.
