The student tested-and-reviewed way to prep for the psychiatry shelf exam and the USMLE Step 2 CK

"I found the book very thorough and an overall good resource for a psychiatry rotation and USMLE Step 2 presentation. I already have recommended this book to my classmates and friends." -- Joshua Lynch, Medical Student, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

" I think this text stands up to the expectations of medical students who depend on PreTest as a study aid during preparation for exams." -- Edward Gould, Medical Student, SUNY Upstate Medical University

Praise for the last edition:
"The Pretest Series is widely used in preparing medical students for the clerkship shelf exams and the USMLE, and this psychiatry edition is, overall, quite good. The content is thorough, the questions concise, and the answers explained well. For those students who prefer to study using question-and answer type review books, this should fulfill their needs. It is nice to see an updated edition of this ever popular review book. 4 Stars!"--Doody's Review Service

5.0 out of 5 stars What more do you need? March 27, 2004
By Seejay
Format:Paperback
This was the only book I used during my clinical rotation in Psych. Fadem's High Yield Psych is also great. If you're planning on becoming a psychiatrist, then you should get the massive Synopsis of Psychiatry... which I always thought was just way too much info for most people.
This book fits in your white coat pocket and is great for reviewing questions in your spare time. It consists of tons of board-type questions in the same format as all the other Pre-test books, complete with explanations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Found it very useful October 15, 2005
Format:Paperback
I used this book on my psych clerkship and found it to be very helpful. Most of the questions are well written and relevant. A few similar ones even showed up on my shelf test. I recommend this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for general psych but not for shelf exam September 30, 2010
By H. Lan
Format:Paperback
I went through this book twice before taking the shelf exam. The questions in this book is too simple and straight forward. The questions on the shelf exam is very difficult and complex (i.e. a patient with a manic episode 20 years ago now shows up with depressed symptoms. what is the diagnosis?). I would recommend studying First Aid or any other resources and memorizing the DSM4 criteria for all of the major psych diseases for the shelf exam.

2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete explanations September 22, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Explanations are often incomplete, only explaining why some (not all) of the wrong answer choices are incorrect. Unfortunately, this seems to be most common when there are a couple answer choices that both might be good options--it is in these situations where an explanation of why one answer is better than the other is most important, and it is in these situations where the "second choice" answer is conspicuously absent. For example, this book states that methadone is the best option for treating a heroine addiction, but even though buprenorphine is one of the answer choices no explanation is given as to why methadone would be a better choice.
