Repertory is a vast subject that links between Materia medica and Organon of Medicine in a trilogy. Repertories are an aid to study and deal with Materia medica in clinical practice. The subject gives proper knowledge and teaches skills from art of case taking to correct prescription. Many of our experts have shown pathways for us making different repertories based on different methodologies. Such a thought of necessity was first originated from our
great father of Homoeopathy Dr. Samuel Hahnemann himself. During the course of time many number of repertories emerged, now-a-days extending even up to repertory softwares. Now as the students of Homoeopathy it is our responsibility to gain knowledge about each of the repertories and the philosophy linked with the subject.
‘Repertory Expert’ is a reference book that should be introduced to each and every aspirants of the subject, Repertory. This book threads all the essential information regarding the subject in a single piece of work. This book can really satisfy the purpose of serving a definite knowledge to someone who needs a support to learn about the subject.
During the course of Graduation/Post-graduation, especially at the time of exams, UG students/PG scholars are compelled to depend more upon the original repertories than any other reference books. The data given in such reference books are also sometimes incomplete, where some of the important topics and repertories may not be available and some of them need corrections. If we need to learn about a repertory in detail, we should approach the original repertory. But, it is very difficult to refer each and every repertory within a short period and of course one should access the library for it or else we should keep all of them along with us to refer when necessary, which is nearly impossible.
All the above said issues have been solved by this book, which is a synthesis of every unavoidable explanations concerned with the most important repertories and related topics. This book collectively includes only the verified data concerned with the repertories, directly taken from the available source books. On behalf of my reading experience I recommend this book to all UG students, PG scholars and teachers expecting ‘Repertory Expert’ to be an asset to nurture your knowledge regarding repertories.
