Boenninghausen’s Characteristics and Repertory has got its own advantages over other repertories. It is well explained, well arranged, follows a definite plan and construction and is based on a sound philosophy. Adequate acquaintance with the repertory with the repertory is needed to put it to maximum use.

Boger has given greater importance to causation, time- dimensions, modalities and generals (pathological, physical and mental). It is obvious that Boger has given importance to causation, modalities, concomitants, general sensations and pathology. Location is given the last place in the order of hierarchy.

While compiling the repertory, Boger followed the basic plan and construction of Boenninghausen’s Repertory of Antipsoric Medicines, which could overcome many difficulties faced in using Therapeutic pocket book.

The repertory embraces the psoric and the anti-psoric repertories, the sides of body, the repertory part of the intermittent fever and of whooping cough as well as a large number of paragraphs from the aphorisms of Hippocrates.
