This title includes outstanding coverage of high-yield psychiatry topics. "4 Star Doody's Review!": "The review books in "The Lange series" are widely used by medical students studying for clerkship exams or the USMLE exams, and this new edition for psychiatry is quite good. It is very thorough, and covers a wide variety of subjects students can expect to be tested on. This book should prepare medical students well for the types of questions they can expect to see on these exams. Review books such as this are a good way for students to identify their strengths and weaknesses in a particular field, and I recommend this review book highly for those students who like to use them as study guides."
