I am a college student and I got this book to help me with future paper writings as a reference. I wish I had gotten a bigger one but lack of money would not allow me to at the time, maybe one day. I think that this is a good resource for anyone that is a student that is going into the field of Social Work and or Psychology when you are writing a paper to reference to on some of the illnesses of depression talked about. Because it does give a more in depth explanation than maybe what a regular course book does.

As a social work grad student working in a social service agency, it was imperative that I have a copy of the DSM-IV. The quick reference is user friendly, especially because when I use it to document my client's substance and alcohol abuse problems, I don't have much time.

I am a psychology major and am constantly writing about diagnoses so it was necessary for me to buy the DSM. Since I was a little short, I couldn't afford the regular edition so I bought the Quick Reference and it makes it so much easier and faster to actually read through the diagnoses in the book and find the one that I am looking for. It really is a helpful tool when going through college and trying to be as successful as possible. I think the way that everything is compacted into this little book is amazing because of its accurate information. All I have to say is "Thank You So Much" to the American Psychiatric Association!
