Overview

NMS Psychiatry, Fifth Edition offers medical students a quick review of psychiatry in an outline format that allows rapid study and retention. Each chapter is followed by USMLE-style questions and answers. A comprehensive Board simulation examination is offered online.

This updated edition includes the latest medications, treatment protocols, and evidence-based practice guidelines. The substance-related disorders chapter now includes "club drugs". Eating disorders have been given a separate chapter to distinguish them from impulse disorders. Questions have been revised to better reflect the level of difficulty of shelf exams. The book has a new two-color design with wider margins for notes.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William Miles, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book, one of several in the National Medical Series for Independent Study, offers a thorough review of psychiatry. The previous edition was published in 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to help medical students prepare for the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) psychiatry shelf exam as well as the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 2.
Audience: Although the book is targeted at medical students studying for these tests, it is comprehensive enough that nonpsychiatric clinicians might find it a useful review.
Features: All of the 13 chapters use an outline format. The first chapter reviews the psychiatric clinical interview and the mental status exam. Subsequent chapters review the various categories of psychiatric disorders (e.g., mood disorders, psychotic disorders). At the end of each chapter, USMLE-style questions are found, complete with answers and explanations. An excellent drug appendix offers a good, basic review of psychotropic medications. A bibliography ends each chapter. There are no illustrations, but several tables are used.
Assessment: Overall, this is a straightforward, thorough review book for psychiatry. It is well organized, comprehensive, and easy to use. Its outline format will certainly appeal to some students, and the USMLE-style questions and answers should help them prepare for their licensing exams. This is a very good contribution to the field of review books for psychiatry.
