INCREASE YOUR SHELF EXAM SCORES WITH THIS AWARD-WINNING LEARNING SYSTEM

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW
"The Case Files series is well known to medical students, and this second edition for psychiatry provides an excellent review of this subject. I particularly liked the way the clinical vignettes are presented in random order, much like real-life scenarios. The clinical pearls are very helpful, and the answers explaining the diagnoses excellent and thorough. Students should strongly consider carrying this book with them while doing their rotation in psychiatry."--Doody's Review Service

    “Superior to other case file books.”
    --Chang-Kun Choi, Medical Student, Midwestern University School of Medicine

    “Using clinical scenarios not only makes the reading fun and interesting, but it is far more engaging than sitting down with a bulleted text and reviewing detail after detail. This is a much better way to learn clinical information. I have not read a book like this before, and I certainly have enjoyed it.”
    – Eric Hossler, Medical Student, James H. Quillen College of Medicine

    “I LOVED this book! I would recommend this book to all third-year students... The book uses a clinical approach and does not lose sight of the pathophysiology behind the disease -- GREAT preparation for being on the wards! The subject matter is also deceptively detailed, with much more information than one normally finds in a text of case files. The reader can use this book as either a rigorous self-test or a read-through introduction to the subject. Once again - a GREAT text!”
    – Elizabeth Johnston, Medical Student, Emory University
