"This is a well-rounded book suitable for shelf exam study, clinical rotations, and USMLE review. The question and answer style makes for quick reading while covering high-yield information. Similar DSM-IV diagnoses are compared to illustrate their distinctive diagnostic criteria. The content is up to date with a good review of pharmacotherapies. The clinical vignettes are throught-provoking with attention given to differential diagnosis and complete discussions of the case. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it as an excellent review text." — Brian Piltz, Class of 2005, University of Washington

"Streamlined review for Step 2, including high-yield vignettes and DSM IV criteria for the frequently tested disorders. The vignettes are the best part of the book." — Patrick Burnside, Class of 2007, Brody School of Medicine
