Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steve Paschos, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a study guide and self-examination based on Kaplan and Sadock's Comprehensive Textbook of Psychiatry, 9th edition, Sadock et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009).
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a standalone review with questions and answers to serve as a thorough guide to the entire field of psychiatry and behavioral sciences. The questions examine the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of every known psychiatric disorder and the discussion covers thoroughly the correct and incorrect answers.
Audience: It is intended as a useful study guide for medical students, psychiatric physicians, and mental health professionals from all fields, and is specifically designed to help those preparing for the USMLE and the ABPN to test their knowledge in psychiatry as part of their continuing medical education.
Features: The 58 chapters have updated material and contain more 1,500 questions standardized for the USMLE and the ABPN, more than any other similar book. Topics are weighted to provide equal distribution between clinical and theoretical issues. Chapters begin with an introduction to the topic and use bullet point lists to present key concepts and terms. The book ends with an appendix with helpful hints for taking examinations. The authors also provide specific recommendations on how to effectively use the book to get the most benefit.
Assessment: The book provides a thorough assessment of key topics for students, psychiatry residents, and clinicians seeking recertification. It will be especially helpful to psychiatrists who are either taking their initial examinations or recertification board examinations. The excellent tables, bullet-point lists, and even figures help consolidate key material. Pages are of sturdy paper stock which is useful for taking notes in the margins. As someone who will be taking the initial ABNP exam in May 2012, I found this to be a truly excellent study guide - and it is appropriately priced.
