Overview

Outstanding coverage of high-yield psychiatry topics

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"The review books in the Lange series are widely used by medical students studying for clerkship exams or the USMLE exams, and this new edition for psychiatry is quite good. It is very thorough, and covers a wide variety of subjects students can expect to be tested on. This book should prepare medical students well for the types of questions they can expect to see on these exams. Review books such as this are a good way for students to identify their strengths and weaknesses in a particular field, and I recommend this review book highly for those students who like to use them as study guides."--Doody's Review Service

Lange Q&A™: Psychiatry is a comprehensive Q&A review of psychiatry for medical students preparing for the USMLE Step 2 exam and the psychiatry clerkship exam. Readers will find 750 questions, broken out by chapters covering various topics of testing and two comprehensive practice tests. All questions are in board format to better prepare students for what they will see on the exam. Detailed explanations explain why the answer is correct or incorrect.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William Miles, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book, one in the Lange series of review books for medical students, focuses on psychiatric medicine. The eighth edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to help medical students review psychiatric medicine and to prepare them for the psychiatry clerkship shelf exam or the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 2. These are certainly worthy objectives, and the authors meet them.
Audience: It is targeted specifically to medical students studying for the psychiatry shelf exam or the USMLE Step 2 exam. In my opinion, psychiatric interns or residents might find the book useful as well as a way to review key concepts in the field.
Features: This book is composed entirely of USMLE-style questions and answers. The first seven chapters cover broad topics in psychiatry, such as adult psychopathology, psychological testing, and legal issues. The last two chapters are practice tests, each composed of 100 questions. At the end of each chapter are detailed answers, explaining not only which answer is correct but why the other choices are incorrect. A thorough bibliography and helpful index end the book. There are no illustrations, graphs, or tables, but such things are not needed in a book of this design.
Assessment: The review books in the Lange series are widely used by medical students studying for clerkship exams or the USMLE exams, and this new edition for psychiatry is quite good. It is very thorough, and covers a wide variety of subjects students can expect to be tested on. This book should prepare medical students well for the types of questions they can expect to see on these exams. Review books such as this are a good way for students to identify their strengths and weaknesses in a particular field, and I recommend this review book highly for those students who like to use them as study guides.
