Two professors of psychiatry from George Washington U. and UCLA present 400 self-assessment questions for people preparing for American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology certification or recertification exams. Questions are multiple choice and cover these major themes: child and adolescent psychiatry; clinical neuroscience and genetics; forensic and ethical issues; gender, race, and culture; geriatric psychiatry; psychopharmacology; psychosomatic medicine; psychotherapy; and schizophrenia. Also addressed are the following categories of disorders: anxiety; bipolar; posttraumatic stress; major depressive; personality; sleep, sex, and eating; and substance-related. The answer and a brief explanation follows each question, as well as suggestions for further reading. The front matter contains a form that may be sent to the American Psychiatric Association to obtain Continuing Medical Education credit after completing the self-assessment.
