Overview

Maximum Retention—Minimal Time

"Deja Review provides a review of biostatistics, epidemiology, ethics and health care systems in a manner that I have not found in other review books. What I liked best is the versatility ... It's small enough to carry around in my backpack and I can flip to a chapter between classes or during downtime." — Daniel Marcovici, Third Year Medical Student, Tel Aviv University, Sackler School of Medicine

"The format of the book is great. This is a great book for Step 1 and the shelf. It focused on high yield subjects ... I found it useful even to refer to for the psychiatry clerkship." — Sarah Fabiano, Third Year Medical Student, SUNY Update Medical University

"With a well-organized and easily accessible format, this book reviews the major concepts of behavioral science with a particular focus on high yield topics....While this book may be used by students at all levels, it is ideal for those rotating on a psychiatry clerkship and preparing for USMLE....Its ease of use and design set it apart from other books covering individual subjects. 3 Stars."—Doody's Review Service

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sheila Lahijani, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: With a well-organized and easily accessible format, this book reviews the main concepts of behavioral science with a particular focus on high yield topics. Each chapter delineates major subjects and integrates them as a quick reference guide for an efficient review. Written by a resident physician, it targets areas that are typically on examinations.
Purpose: This book is designed to help medical students identify and recall major areas of behavioral science. It is to be used as a reference or a supplement to primary textbooks and is ideal as a pocket guide.
Audience: While this book may be used by students at all levels, it is ideal for those rotating on a psychiatry clerkship and preparing for USMLE. It is best used after adequate studying and preparation as a quick reference.
Features: It is divided into three sections on human development and psychology; psychiatric disorders and treatment; and ethics, health care, and statistics. The chapters are divided into topics and organized into columns for quick study and recall. Of note, chapters end with clinical vignettes that demonstrate the application of the material just covered. Tables dispersed throughout the book cover broad areas.
Assessment: Overall, this is a fairly comprehensive review, clearly organized. It is especially useful for those preparing for a board exam after they have studied for a period of time and need a reference tool for recall. It is a review, so obviously it is not to be used as a primary textbook. Its ease of use and design set it apart from other books covering individual subjects.
