Very brief and easy read.

I had forgotten most of my psych, and I had NO Idea how to do a psych patient history or write psych progress notes so this book was great.
Dr. G
Great book for the psych shelf exam.

I think this is a really solid book for NBME shelf preparation. It is very to the point and doesn't include a bunch of useless fluff. If you are really interested in psych and want more than a basic outline of each condition, then this book is not for you. It is in no way a reference text and is really just the important stuff for the test. If, like me you just want to do well on the shelf, this book is great.

This was the first First Aid product I've purchased since buying First Aid for USMLE Step 1, and I think I made a mistake by not buying the First Aids for the last four clerkships I've done. This book was ~200 pages of high-yield information, and it covered almost everything on the shelf exam in adequate detail.

The book is organized into chapters based on similar types of psychiatric disorders. Within those chapters, the sections of specific diagnoses are listed with their DSM-IV criteria, common presentations, treatment, etc. The text provides a complete picture of all the important conditions with a perfect amount of detail. There is also a separate chapter on pharmacology, which lists all the major drugs with their mechanism of action, side effects, and indications.

After taking the shelf, I realized that almost everything on the test was in this book. Case Files was similar in overall quality, but First Aid is much easier to get through in a short clerkship.

If I had to nitpick, I would say this book could have included more on general medical conditions that can masquerade as psychiatric illnesses. I would recommend flipping through the endocrine chapter in another review book prior to taking the exam.

First Aid always has mistakes so you have to go back and correct them, this is a pain in the butt yet must be done because there aren't better, concise books out there. However on kindle you can't edit whatsoever and the publisher doesn't update corrections to kindle editions. Just order the hard copy, you can more easily take notes in that as well

Pretty much everything you need for the psychiatry clerkship. It does a great job of including all DSM criteria and other high yield facts and statistics. And it has treatment sections at the end which are really helpful.

I'm a psychiatry resident currently and I remember finding this book to be incredibly helpful as a medical student. Just the right amount of information in an easy to read and remember way. It sets up a nice framework and I also remember it being helpful for me to take notes in the book throughout the clerkship. This was my main resource and I had the highest score for the clerkship exam.

My first copy of this textbook was lost, which Amazon speedily and painlessly fixed. However, this is my second copy and the first time I even opened the book the entire body of the book pulled away from the cover. I'm not someone who is rough on textbooks. This was extremely shoddy quality, something I'd be absolutely ASHAMED to charge $40+ for. I've been a loyal Amazon and First Aid customer for years, and this is unacceptable quality from both vendors. Completely disappointed.

An excellent review of the basic topics of psychiatry, but psychiatry shelf exams go way beyond this book. Nothing here that you probably haven't seen in class or some other review book.

I've heard this book is the only thing you need to survive during your psychiatry clerkship. It's true! This book is a fast read, and contains pretty much everything you need for your psych shelf. This book and usmle world questions are more than enough to do well.
