This review book contains 1,200 multiple-choice questions modeled on the types of questions seen in Part 1 of the board certification exam in adult psychiatry. The questions are accompanied by answers and explanations for why one answer is correct and the others are incorrect.

Questions are divided into 17 specialty categories—basic psychopathology, schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, geriatric psychiatry, child psychiatry, consultation-liaison psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, substance misuse, eating disorders and sexual disorders, mental retardation, sleep disorders, personality disorders, psychopharmacology, psychotherapies, psychology, and neurology. An additional chapter covers miscellaneous topics. All information has been thoroughly reviewed by experienced psychiatrists.

I am 2 weeks from the MOC now and bought this book at my review conference for extra question practice. I have NEVER seen a book with so many errors!! From questions that are repeated twice in a chapter, questions that have 2 options that are exactly the same, many questions that have 2 options that are the exact opposite, many many questions whose answer key does not correlate to the correct letter of the answer even tho you can tell what the right answer is by the explanation, to answers that are given to a question worded "what is true" and you realize the answer is for "what is NOT true"…. What were these doctors thinking??? I would love to hear from them as to how in the world this book was allowed to be published in their name. Was it that accidentally their draft got published instead of the final edition? Lippincott and these doctors should be COMPLETELY embarrassed and Im pissed that you wasted my time and money
