Review quote

"The book provides a thorough assessment of key topics for students, psychiatry residents, and clinicians seeking recertification. It will be especially helpful to psychiatrists who are either taking their initial examinations or recertification board examinations. The excellent tables, bullet-point lists, and even figures help consolidate key material. Pages are of sturdy paper stock which is useful for taking notes in the margins. As someone who will be taking the initial ABNP exam in May 2012, I found this to be a truly excellent study guide - and it is appropriately priced."
