Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (Assurance Health and Wellness)
Description: This book contains over 1,000 multiple choice questions separated into various subspecialty and diagnostic categories within the specialty of psychiatry. It also presents 200 similar type questions in the area of neurology.
Purpose: The authors compiled this book as a way to assist candidates preparing to sit for their board certification exam in psychiatry. They argue many other review books cater to a broader audience (medical students, general practitioners, etc.), which limits their effectiveness.
Audience: Although the authors intend this book primarily for those individuals preparing for the Part I board certification examination in psychiatry, they also feel it will be useful for residents as they prepare for their yearly in-training examination, the PRITE.
Features: Separated into various diagnostic and subspecialty areas of psychiatry, this book contains at least 25 questions in each chapter (except for the chapters addressing personality and sleep disorders, which have 10 questions). Most of the questions are short and relatively straightforward, and appear to highlight many important concepts vital to the understanding of general psychiatry.
Assessment: In preparing for a test as important as the board examination, it is useful to have various review materials available, including practice questions such as these. While the questions in this book address the major diagnostic and subspecialty areas of psychiatry, they seem more simplistic than much of the material presented in the actual examination. (Board Examination questions generally provide more detailed lead-ins with answers that are more complicated.) In addition, personality disorders are given short shrift, with only 10 questions for the 11 existing diagnoses. However, the sections on psychopharmacology and neurology will be particularly useful for readers. Overall, this book will likely be most useful in highlighting a reader's particular strengths and weaknesses to guide further study.
