Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel E. Levin, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This third edition of the National Medical Series for Independent Study review book on Behavioral Sciences updates the previous edition published in 1990.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a concise and up-to-date review of the material taught in behavioral sciences courses in American medical schools. It includes updated sections on neuroimaging, health care systems, psychopharmacology, and clinical syndromes using DSM-IV criteria. There is a definite need for a book that covers these topics in this format, and the authors have succeeded in meeting their objectives.
Audience: The book is targeted to, and will be very useful for, medical students interested in learning and reviewing the behavioral sciences for class, and for the United States Medical Licensing Exam Step 1. It will also be helpful for psychiatry residents preparing for specialty boards. The authors and contributors are very credible in their respective areas.
Features: The book is divided into 17 chapters with questions and answers for review provided at the end of each chapter, as well as an additional section of clinical cases and a comprehensive exam at the end of the book. There are an adequate number of helpful charts, but the book would benefit from a couple of illustrations in the chapter on neuroanatomy.
Assessment: This is a very worthwhile book for medical students interested in reviewing the behavioral sciences, as well as an excellent resource for psychiatry residents studying for their board exams. The book is very well written and provides an excellent overview of the material. There is sufficient new material provided to justify replacing the previous edition.
