It is a daunting task to distill a psychiatrist s education and training into a single, comprehensive resource, but that is precisely what The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry does to thoroughly prepare candidates taking the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Examination in Psychiatry. The book s organization mirrors both clinical practice and the examination itself, with a review of basic sciences, followed by chapters on diagnostic methods, then on to the full spectrum of psychiatric disorders, treatment options, and special issues in assessment. This approach allows readers to structure their study and review efficiently, as well as preparing them for the actual exam-taking experience. Coverage is uniformly up-to-date, reflecting the most current editions of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, and their Essentials editions. However, unlike these foundational texts, the guide offers the most important concepts in a concise, condensed, and focused method meant to elicit and consolidate prior learning. Finally, the book includes two full practice examinations, totaling more than 400 questions, and cooresponding answer guides to acclimate the reader to the testing process and allow for self-assessment. Supremely useful and absolutely authoritative, The American Psychiatric Publishing Board Review Guide for Psychiatry provides an indispensable tool for those who aspire to board certification in psychiatry.

Review:

In this welcome volume Dr. Bourgeois and his colleagues provide every psychiatrist facing certification and recertification by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology an outstanding resource for study and, frankly, a way to desensitize to this style of examination. Closely referenced to the standard American Psychiatric Publishing texts on which many of the actual examinations items are based, questions are presented in standard ABPN format, following which correct and incorrect responses are discussed in greater detail. Those who ve previously found studying from old examinations to be a useful pedagogical method will enjoy the familiar layout of these questions and discussions. Those who ve never studied this way previously will find this approach to be both enjoyable and productive. --Joel Yager, M.D., Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Colorado School of Medicine; Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA; Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry,

In almost 700 pages of text, tables, and figures, followed by two practice exams and referenced answers to the exam questions, the American Psychiatric Publishing (APPI) Board Review Guide for Psychiatry distills the over 3,000 pages of APPI s Textbooks of Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry into a highly readable review book for the psychiatrist studying for the written Board certification or recertification exams. Well referenced for those readers who wish to delve deeper into a particular area, the Guide provides chapters on the basic and clinical sciences underlying psychiatry, the major psychiatric disorders and their treatments, special topics, and post-text practice exams with answers. The chapters are well written and of sufficient depth to provide a highly useful overview of the breadth of psychiatry and a comprehensive review of this book can serve as an important part of one s preparation for the Board exams. --Jonathan F. Borus, M.D., Director of Medical Education, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Stanley Cobb Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Faculty Dean for Education at Brigham and Women s Hospital Harvard Medical School

Dr. Bourgeois and colleagues have provided a review text of remarkable clarity, precision and readability. It is superbly organized, well illustrated, and supported by excellent review questions. --David Bienenfeld, M.D., Professor and Vice Chair, Director of Residency Training, Department of Psychiatry, Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine, Dayton, Ohio
