very useful resource March 20, 2011
This is a good little handbook that gives you a good overview of psychiatry. I was required to buy this book for my behavioral science course in med school. I can see this being very useful on the psych rotation as well. The information is relevant and pertinent to medical students and practicing residents. I'd recommend it over the Board Review Series Behavioral Science, which was good up to a point but lacked many crucial clinical details.
