Repertorization is not the end but the means to arrive at the simillimum with the help of Materia Medica, based on sound knowledge of Homoeopathic Philosophy. Homoeopathic Materia Medica is an encyclopaedia of symptoms. No mind can memorize all the symptoms or all the drugs with their gradations. The repertory is an index and catalogue of the symptoms of the Meteria Medica, neatly arranged in a Practical/ Clinical form, with the relative gradation of drugs, which facilitates quick selection of indicated remedy. It may be difficult to practice Homeopathy without the aid of repertories.
