Review quote

" "FOCUS Psychiatry Review" is a comprehensive set of questions that covers all main topics of psychiatric practice. It is an excellent set of practice questions for the now routine ABPN recertification test that psychiatrists are required to take. In addition to its brief but informative explanation of the best answer to each question, it also provides a good list of additional resources for further study. Every question has current references, from the last 10-15 years, for review and some are quite extensive. For instance, question 48 about chronic severe major depression cites 8 published articles for further review that include both national and international literature. This is a through review that will be an excellent resource for current information to both established and newly trained psychiatrists."-- "Michele T. Pato, M.D., Associate Dean of Academic Scholarship and Professor of Psychiatry, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California; Research Professor, Washington, D.C. Veterans Hospital; and Professor, SUNY Upstate."show more
