Editorial Reviews

"This concise board review is visually well organized with a reader-friendly format that streamlines the presentation without sacrificing content or scope. It is not an exhaustive review, instead serving as a compact high yield resource that summarizes key concepts and provides a framework for further comprehensive study. This is the ideal starting point for psychiatrists beginning self-directed board review. 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service
