Kaplan & Sadock’s Study Guide and Self-Examination Review in Psychiatry is a comprehensive review of the specialty and perfect for stand-alone review or as preparation for the PRITE in-service, ABPN Part I, and recertification examinations. The book contains more than 1,600 multiple-choice questions and answers, with explanatory discussions of correct and incorrect responses. Chapters parallel the essential corresponding chapters in Kaplan & Sadock’s Synopsis of Psychiatry, a staple of psychiatry education around the globe. Terms and definitions are consistent with DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10.
“The book provides a thorough assessment of key topics for students, psychiatry residents, and clinicians seeking recertification. It will be especially helpful to psychiatrists who are either taking their initial examinations or recertification board examinations. The excellent tables, bullet-point lists, and even figures help consolidate key material. Pages are of sturdy paper stock which is useful for taking notes in the margins. As someone who will be taking the initial ABNP exam in May 2012, I found this to be a truly excellent study guide – and it is appropriately priced.”
Good quality review book that supplements the main text(s). The format is appropriate and I absolutely love having it on the Kindle app on my iPad.
I’ve used Kaplan/Saddock textbook and review questions since the beginning of residency and, after checking out other review books, think it is still the most comprehensive review book around. It has 1500 questions covering every area of psychiatry. The questions have VERY detailed answers and have obviously been well researched. At the eginning of each chapter is a glossary of ‘must know’ terms which I also found helpful for review. The book was quite sufficient for me to pass the Psychiatry Boards. Great if you don’t have time to review the whole textbook. Have not used it for MOC ( yet). MOC is supposed to be very clinically oriented. There is a new edition of this book ( as of 11/2012)and I hope it will have been edited to contain clinical content pertaining more specifically to Maintenance of Certification exams, will certainly check it out when the time comes.
