Psychiatry for the Boards, Second Edition is the most effective test preparation tool for standard clinical psychiatry exams, including the PRITE, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology written exam, recertification exams, and psychiatry questions on the USMLE Steps 2 and 3. The book presents high-yield information and mnemonics in an easy-to-read question-and-answer format. Appendices contain 100 sample Board-type questions and practical exam preparation tips.
Completely updated, with nearly half the chapters rewritten, this edition is DSM-IV-TR compatible and includes new developments in psychopharmacology, neuroscience, and technology. Six new chapters cover human development; ECT, VNS, and DBS; seizure disorders; localized impairment—strokes, brain injuries, and brain tumors; peripheral nerve and muscle disorders; and cranial nerve symptoms and disorders.
