It has been five years since the first edition of this book hit the shelves and rapidly became a best seller in the field of psychiatric test preparation. We have been overwhelmed with the positive response our book received. We sought to write a question and answer book that presented comprehensive answer explanations to save the reader time and effort by having all of the information they need for exam preparation in one volume. We sought to emphasize high yield information for standardized exams and to present it in a format that would allow students to practice test-taking technique and timing in addition to bolstering their knowledge base. By all measures we succeeded, and we are delighted to present you with our newest edition.
We have expanded and revised this book by adding two more tests of 150 questions each, bringing the total to 900 questions. Now that the new format for the ABPN certification examination contains case vignettes and video cases, we have responded by adding a set of twenty vignettes on a wide variety of topics that have an additional 160 questions with explanations attached. This new volume also features a subject index which will help the reader locate questions that fall into the same category, something many readers of the first edition have strongly recommended. We have improved the electronic version of the book for those who would rather do the questions on computer, as this is how the ABPN exams are now given. We hope that you will find this new version an invaluable asset in your test preparation, whether you are studying for the ABPN certification exam, ABPN maintenance of certification exam, PRITE, or USMLE. We have worked very hard to keep this book up to date with the latest information likely to show up on standardized exams. Keep in mind that each test closely mimics the balance of material found on the psychiatry board exam and that all of the answer choices are valuable opportunities to learn. Even wrong answer choices can form the basis of questions on the board exam which is why we spend so much effort on them in the answer explanations. Each answer explanation is also followed by a “K&S” or “B&D” reference. These refer to Kaplan and Sadock’s Synopsis of Psychiatry and Daroff et al Bradley’s Neurology in Clinical Practice . We believe these authoritative texts in psychiatry and neurology are the gold standard and candidates need only refer to the chapter corresponding to a particular question to gain a more in depth coverage of the subject involved. And don’t forget, to test your timing for the actual exam, take each test in one sitting giving yourself two and a half hours for a 150 question test. When timing yourself on vignettes allow yourself one minute per question and an extra 3 minutes to read the vignette.
We would like to thank you, our many readers, for your support. To those of you who took the time to email us with questions, concerns, corrections, critiques and comments, we extend our sincere thanks. We listened to your feedback, and it has made this edition better than the first. We owe a big debt of gratitude to the many psychiatry training directors who have endorsed our book and encouraged their trainees to use this volume as a primary study guide for the ABPN psychiatry certification examination. We hope your trust in us has been rewarded by many happy trainees who are now board certified psychiatrists. And lastly, we would like to thank Charlotta Kryhl and all those at Elsevier whose hard work has been essential in bringing this book to the shelves.
