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.

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.

This book had very similar test questions to those that were asked on the COMAT shelf-exam. It is a great tool to test your knowledge to see what you know and what you need to study more. The book gives detailed answers to each question and explains why the answer is correct and why wrong answers are wrong. It is a great study tool because you continue to learn if you read the explanations. I highly recommend this book to any third year medical student.

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.
