Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This helpful study guide for The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment, 4th edition, prepared by the same authors, is essential for anyone studying for the examination for added qualifications in addiction psychiatry given by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, "is to allow you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through the...textbook."
Audience: The intended audience includes psychiatrists preparing to take the written examination (and recertification) for added qualifications in addiction psychiatry.
Features: The study guide features 293 questions divided into 49 individual quizzes which correspond to the chapters in the textbook. Each answer is accompanied by a brief discussion of the topic, the page in the textbook where the topic appears, and the reason the other answers are incorrect. An index would have been helpful.
Assessment: This is an excellent accompaniment to the textbook. Anyone who is preparing for the written examination in addiction psychiatry would be foolish not to use this study guide. It is a convenient way to reinforce and consolidate the knowledge obtained from reading the textbook.
