Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Helen Macey, MD (University of Arizona Health Sciences Center)
Description: Using a question and answer format, this book reviews psychiatry and neurology topics most commonly tested on primary and recertification exams.
Purpose: The editors have met their worthy goal of providing a review for most professional psychiatry-related examinations.
Audience: The book is intended for psychiatrists in training as well as practicing psychiatrists who are preparing to take the PRITE, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology written exam, and other recertification exams.
Features: This is an adaptation from a review course for psychiatry residents and fellows at Yale University. The book is made up of 10 sample test sets, consisting of 200 questions each. Explanations follow directly after each test set rather than being consolidated at the end, saving readers time when cross referencing. Guidance to scoring and how to use the book is offered in a simple one-page explanation at the beginning of the book. References are adequate but limited in number, minimizing unnecessary pages. Topics in psychiatry and neurology are presented in a random manner, and although typical of board review tests, this may be a potential limitation for readers preferring to study particular topics individually. The index is impressive and particularly detailed. Access to a companion web site containing the questions online is included.
Assessment: This review book is highly recommended for psychiatrists in training as well as practicing psychiatrists who prefer a question/answer style format for board review study. Readers will find this book to be clearly organized with well written questions and explanations that are clear, logical, and of an ideal length. This book is not only an excellent review, but also would be ideal for a self pre-test to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to maximize the efficiency of an individual's study plan.
