Study Guide to Clinical Psychopharmacology is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through the corresponding textbook. The Study Guide is made up of 368 questions divided into 65 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Third Edition. Questions are followed by an Answer Guide that references relevant text (including the page number) in the Textbook to allow quick access to needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct.

The Study Guide's companion, the third edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychopharmacology, covers four major sections: Principles of Psychopharmacology, which provides the necessary background in neurobiology and pharmacology; Classes of Psychiatric Treatment, which presents information by classes of drugs; Clinical Psychobiology and Psychiatric Syndromes, which reviews the data on the biological underpinnings of specific disorders for a better understanding of current psychopharmacological approaches; and Psychopharmacological Treatment, which provides specific information about drug selection and their prescription.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Raj Tummala, MD (Wyeth Pharmaceuticals)
Description: This study guide consists of 368 questions divided into 65 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to the textbook chapters.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive, easy to review quiz format of psychopharmacology that corresponds to the textbook.
Audience: It is targeted at anyone dealing with psychopharmacology such as students, residents, clinicians, and psychopharmacologists.
Features: The guide is divided into four major sections: principles of psychopharmacology covering the fundamentals of pharmacology and neurobiology; classes of psychiatric treatment that covers all of the major classes of drugs; clinical psychobiology and syndromes that reviews the major disease states; and psychopharmacological treatment that reviews treatment modalities. The quizzes have a consistent format and the questions are in the form of multiple choice and true/false. The question section is followed by answer guides that cite the relevant sections in the textbook for easy access. Each answer gives not only the correct answer, but also explains why the other choices are incorrect. Each answer chapter also has a small reference section for further reading.
Assessment: This is a good, quick review of psychopharmacology in a question/answer format that corresponds to the textbook. It would be useful for clinicians taking the board examinations or just as a quick refresher. It is written in a practical, user-friendly format differentiating itself from other books in this category.
