“During medical school, I used similar case review books [apps] for various clerkships, including psychiatry. This one stands out because the cases are representative of psychiatry, the explanations are complete yet concise, and the text uses bolded words, tables, and definitions of key terms to help readers understand the essential concepts rather than simply memorizing more data that is likely to be forgotten. The questions are very representative of the type of questions on the shelf-exams and USMLE Step 2, with appropriate descriptions of the correct answers. The first two sections are ideal for students just beginning their clerkship, as they set the groundwork for the basis of psychiatry.”

Doody’s Review Service

“This [app] is extraordinary. The clinical cases are engaging and enjoyable to read, maximizing the absorption of valuable clinical information. I recommend this [app] to all medical students on clinical rotations.” 

Lance E. Davis, medical student, University of Texas, Southwestern Medical School

“Comprehensive and accurate. Very useful reference text and good multiple choice questions. I am following this for my psychiatry rotation during residency. Seems like it will be very useful in the long run.”
