Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William Miles, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book, one of several in the Deja Review series of study guides for medical students, covers behavioral science.
Purpose: The purpose is to help medical students prepare for the behavioral science portion of the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 1. The author meets this worthy objective.
Audience: The book is specifically written for medical students studying for the USMLE Step 1. The author is a fourth year medical student, and having successfully passed Step 1, could be considered a credible authority on the types of questions asked on that exam.
Features: A wide variety of subjects related to behavioral science is covered. The book is divided into chapters, and all except the last one are structured in a question-and-answer format covering key behavioral science concepts. Chapters on developmental theory, Freudian theory, psychopharmacology, the various DSM-IV disorders, and biostatistics are offered, along with some other related topics. The last chapter is composed entirely of 63 USMLE style questions and answers (but not explanations of the answers). There is a thorough index, but no references are cited other than three textbooks listed as suggested readings.
Assessment: There are many review books available for medical students, and the Deja Review series is commonly used at my institution. This behavioral science review book is well organized, quite thorough, and easy to use. It offers a fairly comprehensive review of behavioral science topics that might be tested on the USMLE Step 1. Medical students studying for this exam will find this book a valuable study guide for this subject.
