Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to provide individuals who have bought the fourth edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Geriatric Psychiatry "an opportunity to evaluate their understanding of the material contained in the textbook."
Audience: Candidates for additional qualifications in geriatric psychiatry are the intended audience, but, certainly, any readers interested in reinforcing their knowledge gained from the textbook would benefit from using this study guide.
Features: The study guide is structured to parallel the textbook. The questions are "boards-like" with answers provided along with detailed explanations. In addition, pertinent references at the conclusion of each chapter allow readers to get additional information.
Assessment: This is an excellent guide for preparing for the boards in geriatric psychiatry.
