Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Craig S Nadelson, BS, DO (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a review book for the CAQ exam for sports medicine. It contains over 900 practice questions and answers, and includes detailed explanations of the answers.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to "provide a well-referenced, evidence-based source of material that would provide a resource for both study and practice" of sports medicine. This is a necessary addition to sports medicine literature because everyone needs to pass the CAQ every 10 years. As far as I am aware, this is the only resource containing questions and answers that are designed to reflect the topics tested on the ABFP sports medicine exams. The authors have done an excellent job in meeting their objectives.
Audience: The target audience consists of anyone in the field of sports medicine, especially those who have or are pursuing the CAQ in the field. It might also be helpful to medical students and residents who have a rotation in sports medicine, but it is likely too advanced for most.
Features: The content is simple: a question section, followed by a section with the answer and explanation. Topics are broken down by specific body parts, rehabilitation, specific sports, general medical problems in the athlete, evaluation of injuries, and special populations.
Assessment: As far as I know this is the first book of its kind, related specifically to sports medicine and the CAQ exam, and something that the field has long needed.
