Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: 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.
