Overview

2,300+ quick-hit questions and answers help you ace the psychiatry board and in-service exams

Psychiatry Board Review: Pearls of Wisdom: Third Edition contains more than 2,300 quick-hit questions and answers addressing the most frequently tested topics on psychiatry board and in-service examinations. Only the correct answers are given, so only the correct answers can be memorized. The rapid-fire question-and-answer format with checkboxes to mark which questions to come back to lends itself to studying alone or with a partner. Every question in this edition has been carefully evaluated to make sure it is completely up-to-date. The new edition addresses four sections of major importance on the boards: General Information; Psychopathology (such as eating disorders and sleep disorders); Special Topics (such as substance abuse and child psychiatry); and Treatment Modalities.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aaron Plattner, MD (Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services)
Description: This study aid for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology written board examination has over 2,300 questions and answers with expanded and updated information from the 2005 edition.
Purpose: This is a time-efficient study guide to be used with other books in preparation for the examination.
Audience: Psychiatrists preparing to take the written board examination are the intended audience.
Features: This review divides the material into five sections. Section I sets out general information related to psychiatry, including neuropsychiatry and psychological sciences. Section II specifically reviews the diagnostic categories of different disorders included in the DSM-IV. Section III discusses various special topics including substance abuse, suicide, and cultural psychiatry. Section IV addresses psychiatric issues related to children. Section V includes a review of psychopharmacology and psychotherapy treatments. The book has minimal graphs and charts to help illustrate the learning points.
Assessment: I have used several board review books, and this one adequately covers the different areas in psychiatry. I recognized several of the items on Psychiatry Resident-in-Training Examinations (PRITE) I have taken. This book should not be used alone to prepare for boards; it should be used as an adjunct text and/or final review to rapidly cover high-yield topics. This book could benefit from some variety in its format by adding more charts, graphs, tables, mnemonics, and illustrations as the question/answer format can be monotonous. A fourth edition will be needed as more psychiatry research is completed and the DSM-V is produced.
