A repertory is an ordered list of symptoms showing the remedies that are thought to be useful for those symptoms. Although it requires long study to master, Kent's Repertory allows increasingly accurate individualization of each case, enabling selection of a more effective remedy.
This fundamental work written by Dr. James Tyler Kent is offered to the profession as a basic Repertory and is a compilation of all the useful symptoms recorded in the fundamental work of our Materia Medica as well as from the notes of pioneers of homeopathy. In this work Kent included the clinical symptoms which were consistent with the nature of the remedy and omitted unverified symptoms. Apart from this some of the added features of this book are :
(i) Articles like "Use of the Repertory", "How to Study the Repertory" as well as Dr. M.L. Tylers' "Repertorising".
(ii) "Dr. Gibson Miller's Hot and Cold Remedies to help differentiate the remedies for selection of the final simillimum.
(iii) An article by Miller on 'Relationship of Remedies and their Duration of Action'.
(iv) Bogers' "The sides of the Body and Drug Affinities" from the Boenninghausens' Therapeutic Pocket Book.
Doubtless to say that these are those are valuable articles which serve the physicians as guide-teachers in achieving the desired goals.
